AC-130 Angel Flares

For the people who don't know whate flares are, they are a countermeasure to counter enemy heat seeking missiles. The flares have to be as hot or hotter than the engine exhaust. That way the heat seeking missile will hit the flares and not the plane.
This clip contains an AC-130 that is deploying flares in the shape of an Angel (thus the name).
