green air
 n.— «It’s a surreal view of the world, flying with night-vision goggles, and some pilots and crewmen refer to it as taking off into “the green air.” In fact, Cantu and his fellow B Company, “Hill Climbers” see more green air than they do daylight.» —“Chinook pilots, crewmen spend their nights flying in ‘the green air’” by Monte Morin Stars and Stripes Nov. 25, 2006.
