In the choppy waters and unpredictable skies above the Red Sea, there’s a Marine who’s making waves in a way that hasn’t been seen since the smoke of Vietnam cleared.

Captain Earl Ehrhart V, flying his AV-8B Harrier with the precision of a scalpel, is on the cusp of etching his name into the annals of aerial combat history.

This isn’t your everyday pilot story; it’s the stuff of legend, with Ehrhart sitting at seven confirmed drone kills since the cold days of December 2023.

The man’s not just flying; he’s rewriting the rulebook on what it means to be an ace in the age of unmanned combat.
