This F-16 top gun successfully defends against 6 surface to air missiles fired by Saddam's forces in the first Iraq war.

That is probably from the missiles exploding nearby. You can actually see the smoke trails in a few of them. Also would like to point out the 5-6 minutes of sustained high speed, rapid altitude changes and extremely sharp turns. The G-forces the pilot experienced would've been significant, and really highlights their peak physical conditioning.

Not sure if you noticed what looked like a line/wireframe appearance during parts of the video, but this is the fighter's "Air to Ground" attack mode. Despite dodging SAMs, the pilot was still trying to lock onto his targets on the ground and complete the mission.
