F-14s vs MiG-28s - May 1986, a Danger Zone in the Indian Ocean


Rear Admiral
13th May 1986 - the USS Enterprise is rushed to the Indian Ocean to provide air support to the rescue of a communications relay ship that is adrift in enemy territorial waters. F-14 Tomcats are scrambled to face the deadly new enemy fighter, the MiG-28. Very few have seen it close before, and faulty intelligence ill-prepares the pilots for a showdown in the danger zone.
