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.

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.

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… Read more »

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.

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 — http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=bawbag You know, I think we could use a little Glaswegian Rudeboys slang around here. “Any mair… Read more »

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