Monday's podcast with a California pilot who was intercepted and shadowed by an F-16 in a military operating area (MOA) ignited a firestorm of debate on our blog, the AVweb Insider.

Lt. Col Fred Clifton, a retired F-16 pilot who now instructs at the Air Force's weapons school at Nellis Air Force Base in Las Vegas, joined the debate from the military pilot's perspective. AVweb's Russ Niles spoke with Clifton about why it's important that civilian pilots be aware of and avoid active MOAs.

Plus, the original story and podcast about Pilatus pilot Patrick McCall's brush with an F-16 generated several listener comments that we'll share.
