At the end both the F-16's say, "Switching safe." Was that a frequency change or was were they disarming their weapons? Any mil pilots care to chime in?

"Switches safe" is confirmation that the Master Arm is, indeed, off. Common call coming off a range, an intercept, a missle shoot, or when operating near some special aircraft.

The frequency change comes a second or two later on the tape..."Push 1-8" (Call to change to another preset channel)

The General WAS playing with himself and failed to hear the frequency change.

last time I checked, Delta was based in Atlanta, and the General (Lee) was a car on the TV show Dukes of Hazzard, which takes place in the south.......

If it hurts your feelings, sorry, I didn't mean to ruffle your feathers Kream.
