An F/A-18 "Hornet" from the "Mighty Shrikes" of Strike Fighter Squadron Nine Four (VFA-94) fires flares during a training mission, October 31, 2001 over Afghanistan. Flares are part of the aircraft's defense against surface-to-air and air-to-air infra-red (IR) heat-seeking missile attacks. IR missiles follow a heat source, the heat created by the flare will hopefully burn hotter than the aircraft engine and attract the incoming missile away from the aircraft. VFA-94 is assigned to Carrier Airwing Eleven aboard the USS Carl Vinson and is conducting missions in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. (CREDIT REUTERS/U.S. Navy/Steve Lightstone)
