A former F-16 Falcon pilot, married, has a current assignment involves flying armed MQ-9 Reaper drones during night-time in Las Vegas (so it's daylight hours over his targets). The high-tempo assignment – he is attacking targets on almost a daily basis – begins taking its toll. His wife notices the stress he's under and he begins drinking when off-duty. On several occasions, the CIA controller orders strikes on obvious civilian targets – including women and children – : a matter of conscience for the Major.

Four Fighting Falcons ordered between 1984 and 1994 have their serial ending with '268'. The oldest one is excluded following a crash in 1999 and the last one is in service with Singapore AF (code : 610). The other two (86-0268 and 87-0268) are block 30 airframes.

583 stands probably for 85-1583 a General Dynamics F-16C Block 32B. Two others Fighting Falcon '583' can be found among the F-16A ordered in 1980; this doesn't match with the still.
