|Quoting MigFan (Reply 2):|
Aircraft that are scrambled are held in a state of alert depending on their alert status. Most air defense fighters are held on a fifteen minute alert, that would allow them to be airborne fifteen minutes after hearing the alert bell.
|Quoting MigFan (Reply 6):|
I am not upset, I just don't agree with you. It's cool. NATO standards call for a fifteen minutes QRA for visual intercept. Where your info is coming from, I don't know. Nor do I want to get into a he said: he said.
I know for a fact that your information is not accurate. I am not looking for an argument or fight. I just disagree with you, that is all.

No, they are not sitting in the aircraft.
|Quoting Checksixx (Reply 15):|
I'd reply but Migfan apparently knows that I'm wrong even though he's asking for the information
|Quoting Checksixx (Reply 5):|
Don't get upset
|Quoting Lt-AWACS (Reply 21):|
While Checksixx has posted incorrect info before (like the no alerts at Buckley thread)
|Quoting Arluna (Reply 19):|
ifteen minutes may be the response time for NATO but not for US forces. Checksixx knows what he's talking about.
|Quoting Checksixx (Reply 22):|
Buckley...What are you talking about?? Just trolling to start a fight? Not going to happen AWACS, nice try. He was refrencing fighters and then the topic turned to alert fighters. US. By the way the guys at the barn said that NATO 15 minutes is from alert to identification. Not getting off the ground.
|Quoting Lt-AWACS (Reply 27):|
RAPCON is correct in the event of a handoff due to shadowing of aircraft.
|Quoting Lehpron (Thread starter):|
Is it a defense manuver? Is it more of a speed again or altitude gain?
|Quoting Migfan (Reply 13):|
They are sitting in a chair right next to the aircraft. I apologize for the sarcasm, but I could not resist.
