Stephen - I have always been fascinated by fast jets and the F16 is one of my favourite airplanes. I managed to get a prime position at a local air show and saw this majestic, but lethal jet fly by whilst releasing chaff. I can almost imagine how the aircraft feels when it does this operationally. It would release chaff to deflect attention from itself and allow it to escape a situation that could endanger its pilots. For me this is a good analogy for PTSD as a release of tension and deflection of attention away from oneself often helps.
