Background: I was getting ready to get a few landings in to finally get to grade 2, and decided to go with Air Force One since I’ve never flown it before. As I was taxing to the runway I saw a F-16 that had landed on the runway on my right (Viper 16) and I immediately thought of how cool it would be to have some fighter jets escort Air Force One.
I then realized the F-16 following me while I was lining up on the runway and soon realized that he/she wanted some action. I expected this random stranger to follow me for a few minutes before getting bored, I was surprised when it followed me in close formation all the way to KLAS. He/she remained really professional, always keeping a distance and playing realistic. The total escort was about 2 hours, and needless to say it was a really wholesome moment. I wish I could thank them for taking their time off and doing this, but we’re probably never gonna meet each other again.
But hey, if you happen to be reading this; Thanks mate! Really enjoyed the flight and took a ton of screenshots.
