Navy pilot Lt. Cmdr. Mike Tremel was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross on Saturday for shooting down a Syrian Su-22 Fitter attack jet in June 2017, the first air-to-air kill since 1999, Military.com reports.
On June 18, F/A-18E Super Hornet pilot Lt. Cmdr. Michael “Mob” Tremel shot down a Sukhoi Su-22 during a close-air support mission in the skies above Syria, the first U.S. air-to-air kill since 1999. And although Tremel delivered a riveting first-person account of the shoot down during a Sept. 10 symposium, you can now witness the dogfight with your own eyes.
