I Am A Member Of The U.S. Armed Forces. I Fly Missions Over A Combat Zone As Part Of The Military Operations In That Combat Zone. Is Any Part Of My Military Pay Excluded From Gross Income?

Yes. The combat zone includes the airspace over it, so you are serving in the combat zone. See Q&A-2 above for a discussion of the amount of your military pay that is excluded.
