Guns! Guns! Guns!

Okay, what the hell was the F-16 pilot in this video thinking?

No, I mean, really. What made him think he could engage not one but two civilian aircraft and just "play" with them?

Ah, the things we have to look forward to while training on this sector.

That video is incredibly disturbing. I'm in the Air Force and I think it's very irresponsible of that F-16 pilot to do that just to "show off" or whatever he was doing. Very dangerous situation for all involved.

We've had a few instances with the T-34s around here where they'll seemingly chase general aviation aircraft. Note: this is with aircraft that we are NOT talking to. I have no idea whether it's intentional or not. I try to give these guys the benefit of the doubt, but the NASA reports are out there that say otherwise.
