UAE's F-16 Dodge Yemen Air Defense Missile Attack Over Capital Of Sanaa

Outstanding! Super piloting skills by the Emirati pilot. The MAWS on that blk 60 must've ringing and lighting up like crazy. Not just one missile, he dodged a pair of them! The first one @ minute 1:02 when he juked the missile's trajectory with the perfectly timed flares ejections and the 2nd missile @ 1:16 was also juked by the 2nd set of perfectly timed flares released that it made a course adjustment and came back at him where it barely missed the aircraft. AND, the reason it missed the aircraft is also because of his amazing flying skills. If you watch the slow-motion, he actually pulls up a fraction of a millisecond before the missile passes, just enough so that it slips below the aircraft. Outstanding. The only luck that played any factor in this scenario was that missile didn't have a proximity fuse.
