Gunfighter Diary Desert Shield 19 Nov 90

19 NOV 90

159204, 5T2, 5.1, 260, Diamond

Briefed at 0800, went on Standby, flew backup for Gen Boomer's aircraft for 2 hours. Saw Gen Schwarzkopf. Came back in time to configure aircraft for night flight to film Cobra shoot. Flew 3.1 hours, practiced some night desert landings, then flew form on the Cobras for 2 hours. Conditions were never right for them to shoot, so we eventually made it back to the field at 2030. Debriefed, walked to tent, got a shower and hit the rack.
