Dubbed "Turkey Shoot", nearly 70 aircraft destroyed more than 1,000 targets on bombing ranges across North Carolina. How long did it take? A few hours. How long would it take to do that, oh, say 60 years ago during WWII? 30,000 bombing runs, over a course of weeks.
A clear picture of US Air superiority has been demonstrated. [Source]
But was it a dry run for Tehran - or something else? Perhaps in the Pacific Theater?
