    Ah, remember the days. If you’ve ever been in the air while being “back there”, thanks for your service.

    Remember when you shared the leg space with the equipment in the C-130. Was nice to move up to “business class” sized space in the C-141. Needed a bit more runway though.

    Jumping out of a perfect aircraft is NOT a natural act.

    everyone knows “Whoop Ass” only comes on treads.

    And once they jump OUT, they need my birds to come bring them beans and bullets…and a ride home when theyr’e done.

    I remember flying to Saudi on a C141 with an aircraft tow tractor chained in the middle of the cargo bay. Watching that thing bobbing on those balloon tires made everybody a mite nervous.

    And when it is a full Combat load out and there are a couple or three FGM-148s in the load? Have fun Tread Head!

    no problemo there Old Dog… max range on your 148 is 2500 meters.

    we’ll let the scouts localize you, then wait until dark and use the thermal sights to use our greater range to plink you out of existence from outside your range fans.

    that’s assuming, of course, that the C-DATS don’t play sporting clays with your air transports firing canister rounds.
    (although i wonder what a sabot would do to the wing attachment points on a C-17 as it went through them?)

    much love,

    My brother was a C-141 pilot in the first Gulf War. His three little girls in Charleston got to where they didn’t recognize this Strange Man who was coming to visit them from time to time.

    Here’s another story of matchless courage: Teen girl gives birth, loses cancer fight

    http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/health/2011/12/29/teen-gives-birth-loses-cancer-fight/

    At fifteen years old, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor, and found out at almost the same time that she was ten weeks pregnant. Her family says she never considered having an abortion — and she decided not to have chemotherapy for the baby’s sake.

    She asked only that the little feller be put beside her as she died. Which she did, 12 days after his birth. I am in awe.

    First….there is NO such thing as a perfectly good aircraft!!! Especially when gravity is a factor!! :em05:

    Second, just for the record, and with a little help from gravity…I have jumped from UH-1s (Huey), C-130s (Hercules), C-141s (Star Lifter), C-160′s (at German Jump School), Ch-47s (Chinooks), UH-60s (Blackhawks), CH-53s (Sea Stallion) and a couple others I can’t remember right now.

    This is hilarious. I saw on The Scotsman.com that they’d just had a howlin’ great storm in Scotland, which was so bad the locals dubbed it “Hurricane Bawbag.”

    Well, okay, I just had to find out what “bawbag” meant. I’m still laughing –

    You know, I think we could use a little Glaswegian Rudeboys slang around here. “Any mair o your pish ya bawbag and am gonnae ram ma fit up yer ring!”

    Doesn’t matter what your jump platform is. My dad said that only two things come from the skies, birdshit and fools.

    “A helicopter doesn’t fly… It just beats the air into submission.”

    “If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it’s probably a helicopter — and therefore, unsafe. “

    One nit tho, it ain’t whoopass, it’s WHUPass.

    Whoop is what you do when SCOAMF gets his ass handed to him in NOV.

    Whup is what we need to do to SCOAMF’s ass to save The Republic.
