Got an email today from a long-term food storage company. They are selling freeze dried McDonald's food. Hamburger, cheeseburger, chicken, filet of fish, sausage egg mcmuffin, egg mcmuffin, bacon egg and cheese biscuit, breakfast burrito, hash browns, and french fries.

 

Edit: forgot the McGriddle.

I doubt this really qualifies as a joke, but you get three freeze-dried hamburgers for $35.

Back in the mid 80s I was stationed in Rota Spain the only US fast food restaurant any where near the base was a KFC and it was over an hour round trip.  I never bothered to make the trip as IMHO the local cuisine was much better.

One of the units at the base was a permanent P-3 detachment. Every 6 months or so a different squadron home ported in Brunswick Maine would rotate in. At least once during their rotation the squadron would fly in everything needed to make several hundred Big Macs. They would set up a kitchen in a tent on the flight line and proceeded to cook and sell Big Macs. Sailors wanted them so badly that I have seen the line stretch for over 1/4 mile as they lined up to get one.

 

Me, I never saw the fascination.

Yep. We had two avionics shops 210 and 211. One for EA-3s and one for EP-3s because 95% of the flyers flew one or the other but not both.  All the others shops were combined.

 

BTW I worked on Whales.

Dad flew Whales with VQ-1. Was also sqdn maintenance officer. They must’ve been phasing them out when you worked on ‘em. 

 

BTW, I have the complete NATOPS Flight Manual for the P-3/A/B/C. It's the size of city phone book!
