RAF Pilot Juliette Fleming: Wow

By Wyatt Earp | January 28, 2010

She’s not only gorgeous; she’s also making the Taliban her beyotch:

A female RAF pilot has revealed how she terrified Taliban fighters by screeching low over their heads in her Tornado fighter jet – a new tactic to avoid killing civilians with stray bombs.

Flight Lieutenant Juliette Fleming, 31, was repeatedly called on to swoop down low over fanatics attacking British and coalition troops on the ground in Afghanistan.

The awesome sound of her GR4 jet roaring overhead at 550mph just 100ft above the ground would deafen the enemy and force them to take cover.

Okay, we can debate the sense of scaring the Taliban instead of, say, shredding them with cluster bombs all day. (I’d rather see her and her squadron making beef jerky out of the Taliban, but that’s just me.) Fleming doesn’t make the policy, she just carries it out. There are more photos below the fold.

Flt Lt Fleming carried out her sorties during a three-month posting at Kandahar airfield with 31 Squadron, known as The Goldstars.

The noise of a low level swoop directly overhead is usually enough to get the enemy’s heads down so the friendlies can withdraw and get back to a safe place.

Of course, like every member of the military, Fleming is a true professional:

“You just concentrate on doing the job as quickly and effectively as you can. People ask about the threat to yourself – but I don’t really think about that.”

“I am just there to deter that threat to the guys on the ground. As soon as you get called to do something, your brain clicks into gear and you crack on with it.”

Fleming and her navigator Nikki Thomas (below) use the call sign “Monster Seven Three.” Yeah, that’s hot.

I have to admit, after seeing Fleming and the new Miss England Lance Corporal Katrina Hodge, I think they are giving the IDF babes a run for their money.

    They need to use her for their recruiting posters. I’m just sayin’…she’ll bring in the men and the women.

    One time I was at Fort Riley and a plane swooped down on us and turned on his afterburner just as he stood his plane on its nose right over us. It sucked the tent right off of us and made us deaf for a couple of hours. It is not a plesant experience. MUD

    Proof – I’d like to get on top . . . well, I’ve said too much.

    MeToo – I wholeheartedly agree.

    MUD – We were really close to the jets on the tarmac at the air show at McGuire AFB. Even with earplugs, we were deaf afterward.

    I wonder if the Taliban knew it was a woman scaring the turbans off em?

    “Come on Omar, tell me again how my testimony is worth only half of a mans.” As she hits the afterburner.

    When German and RAF pilots were flying over the trenches in the.. War to end all wars..sometimes the rear seat gunner in a double seater would throw little hand held bomblets at the trenches, sometimes they took a box of darts made of lead and dumped them over the side while flying parallel to and over the trenches. It seems like a small bubble on the underbelly, areodynamically sound of course, housing a bunch of flechettes, like the ones used in beehive rounds in Vietnam, would be just the ticket for those low passes when they can’t use their boom booms :)

    WalterC – They would be royally pissed. No pun intended.

    Jon – Hand-thrown pipe bombs. Freakin’ sweet!

    Watuschskie- But Danica doesn’t have that hot British accent.

    Elena – I’ll definitely check it out. Thanks!

    Proof – Well, I certainly wouldn’t call my mind “great,” but thanks anyway.

    Flight Lieutenant Fleming is corn.

    She congers up images of a muppet on a drum set.
