Evading the Enemy

Evading the Enemy


Reporter: AT THE DRAUGHON TRAINING RANGE,
PILOTS CONDUCT SURVIVAL, EVASION, RESCUE AND ESCAPE, OR SERE EXERCISES SIMULATING A CRASH
LANDING WITH ADVERSARIES CLOSE BEHIND. Capt Phil Borquin: We have a huge probability
of being shot down by the surface to air missiles. So this training is very operable, especially
in wartime. This terrain is pretty similar to where we’d
most likely be fighting. So we’re prepared well from right out of
pilot training up until now. And those refreshers and everything they teach
you is super lapseable and you definitely have to practice it or it goes away. Reporter: PILOTS TREKKED THROUGH THE WOODS,
HIDING FROM VOLUNTEER ADVERSARIES. TSgt Jason Allchin: They decide if they go
left, they decide if they stay still, they decide if they run. So the training we provide gives them those
skills so they can return with honor. Reporter: THE PILOTS SUCCESSFULLY EVADED ALL
PURSUERS AND GOT HOME SAFELY. STAFF SERGEANT CANDACE WILLIAMS, MISAWA AIR
BASE, JAPAN.
