F16 / LOVE


Fighter pilots belong to a military elite and occupy one of the most desired positions within the military. They also own a certain reputation. They are the tough guys, highly-skilled, competitive, a bit cocky and somewhat reckless. Getting into the program is already challenging, as selection processes only accept candidates with exceptional academic records, physical healthy well-being, and a strong mental drive. Once in the military, fighter pilots are often deployed in war-zones, far away from home, where their lives are devoted to a passion for aviation, to the air-to-air combat and camaraderie. Deployments are tough and romantic interaction is certainly not the first thing that comes to mind when thinking of life at base. But is love not as essential here, as it is anywhere else? A short film about the love of a jet fighter in the pink sky above the battlefield.
