    Polish F-16 pilots get set for possible Afghanistan mission

    Poland has 48 F-16 jet fighter planes. Most of them rarely take to the skies outside of routine training.But in two years, the planes could be heading to Afghanistan, reports Rzeczpospolita.The paper cites an unnamed soldier as a source that says the matter is already settled, just has not yet been announced publicly by Polish army authorities.Pilots at a large Polish Air Force base admit they have already started rigorous training and preparation for the 2012 departure to the war-torn middle-eastern nation, but Polish Air Force officials have yet to confirm this.
