Host Bob Edwards talks with the commander of the 8th Air Force about the unique characteristics of the aircraft now taking part in the NATO air strikes over Yugoslavia. Lieutenant General Ron Marcotte oversees the war-fighting capabilities of the Air Forces' technical aircraft. While some have drawn comparisons between the heavy air strikes now being used over Kosovo to the air strategy used in the Gulf War, Marcotte says the two campaigns are quite different from each other.
