Default Hostile aircraft in the PHX area.

Has anyone in the PHX area had an encounter with a hostile aircraft?

By hostile, I will just say, maybe the pilot has watched a little too much Top Gun and likes to engage light aircraft with his light aircraft.

If so, please PM me.

Hostile aircraft? Seriously?

"Engage?"

Which was it? Guns, or missiles?

Usually, the laws of physics eventually takes care of these types as the wing or horizontal stabilizer fail with high G-load.
