If a lifetime can be likened to a day, then this is Happy Hour!
Buck,Almost by definition, Helicopters are not perfectly good aircraft. There's only one time seeing a helicopter above you is a good thing, when your pink butt is being rescued. All other times is bad news.
juvat/ The most dangerous time I EVER spent airborne was NOT during any cmbt msn, but the time I hitched a ride back from Hue to DaNang on a Korean-era VNAF H-34. "You did WHATTTTT!!!!!????" the guys said when I told them how I came back early from a sight-seeing trip after Tet. LOL!
@ juvat: Agreed. I've only had one helicopter ride in my life and it was "interesting."@ Virgil: LOL!
Great honor for the one chosen to do the jump with him, but what pressure!
Good point, Jim.
Outstanding... STILL leading by example...
I do admire the man. A lot.
Just be polite... that's all I ask.
