Everybody may already be aware of this but Ilan Ramon, the Israeli astronaut that died in the shuttle crash was one of the Israeli pilots that bombed the Iraqi nuclear power facility in 1981.

He volunteered to be the rear pilot in the formation because he was the only single one in the attack group at the time, and that is the most dangerous position because of anti-aircraft missiles coming up from behind. A real life hero.

I didn't realize this before, but up until COL Ilan Roman was in orbit aboard the Columbia shuttle very few people knew that he was one of the Tamuz mission pilots, it was a closely guarded secret. A friend of mine, who was a very close friend of Ilan's had discovered this by accident when visiting Ilan's house and spotted a video tape labled Barbara Walters interview. This was strange because Ilan was not much of a fan of Walters for obvious reasons. Apparently back in the early 80s Walters had done an interview with some of the pilots that flew the Tamuz mission. When my friend asked Ilan about it, Ilan said now we share something else - a secret. In a trip together in Florida pre-flight, Ilan stopped at a VFW memorial and gave a salute to those who didn't come back. I guess this slide show is a similar tribute to COL Ramon.

Interesting story anymouse. I didn't know about it until after the shuttle disaster and saw a story on TV about the nuclear reactor raid. It also mentioned him perishing in the shuttle crash. He certainly didn't mind laying his life on the line for his country.

I think you mispoke. Ilan left behind a wife and several children. I don't think he made such life decisions frivolously. I don't think our troops in Iraq do so either. It is serious business to go in harms way to protect other's liberty.

You're correct, that didn't come out right. He had the courage to lay his life on the line for his country numerous times was the point I was trying to make.
