If I were drafted into WW3 and I knew I am going to be a pilot for a fighter jet, I would probably divert and just fly to an empty island, land there, settle there and eat raw food from what I find in that island. I guess I will forget about civilization and live a wild life all by myself eating those veggies there. Possible problem to this "AWOL" *technique*:
1. once on flight on a "group mission" managing to divert/escape to any direction without being noticed by your fellow soldiers pilots.
2. Locating a good island and making sure you have enough fuel to make it into that island (maybe a pocket GPS would help?)
3. Landing into your chosen island, will have to make sure there is a long enough runway and the runway stable enough, could be sand based, but cannot be too "junpy".
If you have families in any foreign country, you can just choose to divert directly to that country and land in an airport there, then visit your family there and live there for a while. I am not sure how many miles you can fly straight up in one of those military fighter jets, but I assume they were built to last many miles per gallons.
***I have never been a soldier and my ideas here are mere speculations, you might call them, dreams if you want.
Just out of curiosity, what would happen if a soldier pilot out of a sudden decides to fly away from its mission as if the aircraft were "his" and just go to any location he feels like to "escape from it"? Has any soldier ever attempted something like this before?
