That's a long wagon train.
It's very reasonable to say the aircraft will be tracked by Yugoslav early warning systems.
The guidance for attacking bridges in the future was: you will no longer attack bridges in daylight, you will no longer attack bridges on weekends or market days or holidays.
In fact, ... You will only attack bridges between ten o'clock at night and four o'clock in the morning. That creates a sanctuary and makes the kids (allied pilots) very, very predictable as to how we're going to do our business.
We will be close enough that the Serbs will know NATO will be there.
I'd have gone for the head of the snake the on first night, ... I'd have turned the lights out the first night. I'd have dropped the bridges across the Danube. I'd have hit five or six political/military headquarters in downtown Belgrade. (Yugoslav President Slobodan) Milosevic and his cronies would have waked up the first morning asking what the hell was going on.
