Also its 2007 not 2003, the chances of the pilots being shot down by some SAM is downright not likely. What I saw were a pair of idiots who were eager to shoot at something. Those pilots were not acting as adults but teens straight out of highschool who enlisted in the marines or army infantry.
It was downright dispicable for the pilots to act the way they did and if I was in charge I would kick them out of the armed forces and send them to prison for not beng professional enough.
I am not talking about the chance of being shot down, but the chance that ground forces being attacked and killed by targets not killed. The Apache mission was happening because US ground forces where coming under fire from insurgents in the area.
