We'd been flying for over 40 minutes and my trainee pilot had gradually become less talkative and less animated and, for someone who was heavily engaged in air combat with two other fast jets, this was a problem. 'You OK there, buddy?' I asked, as my student disengaged from the hostile aircraft and climbed skywards, out of the fight. 'I just think I could do it better, it didn't look right.' came the reply. But I'd seen this before and I knew it wasn't good.
