Norweigen's Pilot's eye
Nothing escapes a pilot’s eye. In preparation for a training sortie, Norwegian pilot Maj. Erik Brettingen conducts a pre-flight check of his Fighting Falcon at the 162nd Wing at the Tucson International Airport. In addition to being an exchange officer here at the wing, Brettingen is also the commander for the Norwegian attachment. Beginning this year, student-pilots from the Scandinavian country will receive additional instruction in critical areas, such as Night Vision Goggles (NVG) training – representing a milestone in their now 18 year association with the 162nd Wing’s F-16 Schoolhouse.
