I really hope Iroh is a regular character now. He was so bad ass! Fall out an airplane? Oh no problem! Of course, in the old show, weren't fire-benders only able to fire-jet-fly under Sozin's Comet...?
I just saw this again, and nothing Iroh did really constituted "flying." He used the fire jets twice -- once to boost himself onto a plane that was a few dozen meters ahead of him, not long enough to constitute flight, and once when he was falling from a plane, to aim his descent so that he'd land on another plane.

But I have to wonder -- if he's commanding a fleet of ships, why is he General Iroh instead of Admiral Iroh?
