Commercials Show the US Air Force's Science Fiction Side

If Stargate SG-1 is to be believed, the US Air Force's Space Command hides fantastical technologies and runs space-bound missions. A new ad campaign paints the US Air Force as straight out of science fiction — without the aliens.

The latest round of commercials for the United States Air Force play on the theme "It's Not Science Fiction," portraying Air Force missions and technologies as something out of military science fiction. One even shows off the Space Command, although this one doesn't appear to involve Stargates or preparations against an alien invasion.


Another ad spotlights the Unmanned Aircraft Systems, with a desert mission seeing support from a spy plane.


Another spot imagines the Air Force's combat, search and rescue airmen parachuting onto an alien world.
