Israel reservist opens up on downing Iran missiles – ‘Top Gun meets Star Wars’

He also admitted that he didn’t feel particular concerns about his plane being struck but felt enormous pressure at the prospect of failing to intercept a missile and seeing it hit Jerusalem, Tel Aviv or other Israeli cities.

The reservist said he scrambled to his plane after receiving a call about the inbound missiles while spending the evening with his family.

Major G, who is a lawyer when he is not piloting fighter planes, noted his wife and children are familiar with the procedure as it wasn’t the first time he was suddenly called into action.

He said: “It happens every now and then, but nothing as extreme as last Saturday.”

Within hours of downing his last missile, he was already back at his desk “shooting off emails” – a regular occurrence for him and other reservists.
