Race car transport??

I used to buy 4WD parts and big car parts out west, then pack em in a hook and fly them back home.

Probably just something like that...

I bought one or two of them with mice inside. That's roughly equivalent to the new American male, right?

Nate, When I was a young wipper snapper in the task force (160th) I was jogging one day back on Clarksville base. Underground complex where the Navee used to store important stuff. A couple of those bunkers were ours. One was open so I just jogged right in. The whole Guns-a-go-go weapons systems were sitting right there. Obviously somewone was thinking of fitting out one of our classified birds with the cool stuff...We never did...

Photographer was Ned Dawson, filming us on a mission. Gunner is getting ready to light up someone's world and burn the left arm off the pilot sitting there!

Landing on that LP-H on the "45" is not as easy as it may seem. The ship is not stationary! Nossir, it's moving along, normally 15-17 knots

The white one with the Chinese markings was a Boeing Demo bird built for China.

I actually flew that bird. Repainted and reissued to the Army, we named it "China Girl"

Some other things:
Food
Time off
Response to Excuses
Compassion from pilots
Showers
Warmth in the winter
Comfort anytime
Support from just about anybody when in the bush
Care from the VA
Replacement uniforms
Sympathy
Compassion from others
Normal language devoid of four letter words
Well, for that matter, intelligent conversation at all!
Dry feet
Chewing gum...I heard many a grunt complain about not enough gum
Cleanliness
vehicular transportation
Dates on weekends

But for all that, there are a few things they are heavy on:
Honor
Respect
Integrity
Feared
Sense of value
Knowing they did their duty
Self control of fear
Manning up
Being someone worthy of that dirty flag on their shoulders
Courage
Sense of Duty
They won't quit (Not smart enough to, I'd suspect  ;-)

At the air show this weekend I think my grandsons favorite craft was a toss up between the Chinook doing ferry duty for the jump crews and the B25 "Paper Doll" that he got a special tour through because Grandpa knows people LoL

The one Chinook they were giving walk through tours with, that aircraft saw some serious foot traffic. There was a line two blocks long for most of the day. Grand islands Air Guard did a stand up job of hospitality and educating folks on the Chinook. You'd be proud Don.

Those guys do rescue work up on Mt. McKinley. They are part of what we call the HART (High Altitude Rescue Team) Skis, obviously for landing on snowy surfaces.

A normal Chinook has a service ceiling of 20,000 feet due to the system that pressurizes the hydraulic system on the low side. But, I know of some people who took one to 27,000 feet one day...
