      Pilot says he felt like it was Superbowl day

      08 October 2001

      One of the American pilots who took part in the raids on Afghanistan said
      that he felt like "a football player on Superbowl day."

      Five crew members were made available for interview by the Department of
      Defence after the overnight attacks.

      The pilots did not reveal any detailed information and were only
      identified by their radio call signs.

      One officer, 'Vinny', said: "I felt very proud, it's like being a football
      player on Superbowl day. My grandfather was in World War II, my dad was in
      Vietnam, and I'm just honored to participate in something like this." he
      added that they had faced more challenging tests during normal training.

      'Doc,' a radar operator on a B-52 bomber, said: "We were well briefed by
      the people who put the package together for us." "We went out and did what
      we were supposed to."

      A lead pilot added that while the planes had encountered some
      anti-aircraft fire, they had not felt at risk from the Afghan air
      defences.

      not a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not
      speak out because I was not a trade unionist. Then they came for the
      Jews, and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew. Then they came for
      me, and there was no one left to speak for me." - Pastor Martin Niemoller
