knockout punch to a target on the ground because it can carry a pretty hefty load of ordinance, pile lons under the wing. this pile lon there's provisions for one on either side and the aircraft can carry an assortment of rockettes and bombs or external fuel tanks. rounding out the plane is on each wing tip a heat seeking sidewinder missile which is used in air to air combat and in conjunction with the other weapons it is capable of carrying in all it makes the f-16 a pretty fear some weapon. >> indeed. the kernel sacolonel says the p capable in the hands of a capable pilot. working for a living is taking on a whole new meaning now. more and more americans are having to put off retirement. lauren simonetti joins us with the details.
