F-16 dodging 6 Iraqi SAM launches on Jan 19 1991

F-16, callsign Stroke 3, dodging 6 SAM launches during Desert Storm.

This was one of the largest daytime raids and after 2 nights of pounding by coalition forces the Iraqi's were throwing everything they had.

The vid starts out with his premission arming before takeoff as he narrates into the video. The SAM action begins around the 3:00 point. The radar waring receiver tones and chrips can be heard often. In some cases you can see the missile smoke trails.
A good read about Package Q that this aircraft was part of is at:
