You could do that, but it isn't going to buy you anything. A cessna isn't going to shake an Eagle/Viper/Raptor/etc by going slow.Say you are intercepted, can you slow-flight the cessna and mess with the jet drivers? I mean, if you are going to pay a fine and lose your license, might as well learn something useful.
Well it gives the fighter jocks a live target to practice on... so really the pilot should get to charge the US government for the training exercise.For something like a little dinky 172, I'm surprised they don't scramble something a little more sensible like a King Air. I figure it's mostly old farts who didn't check the NOTAMs or call a briefer violating the SFRA. Plus, you have to be pretty thick headed not to know you're getting close. They yell at you on the guard frequency.
Also, I don't even want to think about how much it costs to scramble an F-22 to come get me. I'm guessing over 100K.
What about something like an Extra or Pitts, that was all out maneuvering down on the deck... I assume you'd just circle them slowly, but how hard would it be to engage something slow and highly maneuverable?You could do that, but it isn't going to buy you anything. A cessna isn't going to shake an Eagle/Viper/Raptor/etc by going slow.
That F'ing snuff film still makes me mad, just thinking about it. Free Enterprise. Avoid foreign entanglements. Riiiiiiggghhhhtt. Kill a guy in an unarmed airplane and feel like a Big Man.Like that video of the South American Tucano (I think it was a Tucano) that shot down the drug smugglers.
