Air Force discusses how it would respond to Godzilla

New, 69 comments

As various films have shown, Godzilla is a devastating opponent in a fight. With a new movie coming out just a week from nowSmithsonian's Air & Space decided to sit down with two in the US Air Force's 18th Wing at Kadena Air Base in Japan to see how they would deal with the giant monster should it show up. "I think Godzilla would be expecting an aerial attack, so to catch him off guard, I think we could need 4,000 Segways and slingshots," says master sergeant Jason Edwards, of the 18th Wing's public affairs. Don't expect much in the way of detailed strategy from the video, but it may be humbling to know that the Air Force likely shares some ideas with you about who might make a good crew member for taking on such a powerful creature.
