Video FAQ :

bulletThe aircraft doing the shooting is an AC-130 Spectre gunship (
bulletThe explosions in the video come not from rockets or missiles, but from blasts from a 40mm Bofors anti-aircraft gun that is mounted on the AC-130.
bulletThe gun camera video is most likely footage from a November, 2001, attack by U.S military forces on terrorists in Afghanistan. Taliban and Al Quaeda terrorist officials were attempting to meet near Kandahar Airfield. Their vehicle convoy was detected by USAF JSTARS and Predator recon assets, and the AC-130 was subsequently tasked to the area for combat.
bullet US DOD-released videos of this kind ordinarily do not include voice traffic. Note that the mosque was designated a "no-strike target" by the USAF command center.

The Heat... The Cold... The Bullshit... This was ALTUS during the 60's.

This site is dedicated to the craziest group of AIRMEN fallen and living who did their job in the pursuit of our Great Nation's Freedom. The USAF did their best to save a few poor souls from the asylum.

For those that did not buy an Altus Yearbook and would like an electronic version (CD) send a $5.00 bill with your name and address to:
