Some Things Don't Change - Ever

Recommended Posts

“Howdy....is this the Kremlin? Yah! Yah! Igor! I remember you from last time! Yah, this is Bob over at the USAF 116th fighter wing! Do you guys still have that ancient Bison bomber? You do! Great! We are requesting a photo OP in two weeks? Can you help us out with that? How about 1500 hrs on the 23rd over the Bering sea? That would be awesome! Yah! The North Koreans backed out at the last moment and we really need to send the airwing calendar to print..... OK, OK the boys can send some Smirnoff over! Same address? Ok, ok great! Talk to you some Igor.....Bye!”

We're still flying B 52 and C 130 stuff that will be here long after the last cockroach on the planet had died.

And there will still be some M1911A1s in inventory as well.

We still get C130s flying over my house on their way to Volk Field.  Helos fly over all the time.  It was a real kick when they A10s would fly by.  Low and slow, crossing patterns.  Now that the fighter wing in Madison has F15s or 16s, we don't see much for fighters anymore.

'Struth.  Governments keep trying to improve perfection and almost always find a way to screw the pooch.

Come on out to Plant 42 in PMD.

We get a great airshow just about every day.

This includes Global Hawk drones also. ;)

You should see the look on my dog's face when Ospreys' fly over our house on their way to landing at Los Alamitos Air Base. It's hilarious. I gotta get a picture.
