      Grant me the senility to forget the people
      I never liked anyway,
      the good fortune to run into the ones I do, and
      the eyesight to tell the difference.

      Herc in the creek at Cape Romanzof
      By Fred · Posted
      Long time ago and some years after I left the "Harsh, Unique, Arctic Environment". I recall reading the final message copy of the report, if I remember correctly. At least it was a very comprehensive version of the safety report. Pope crew during Jack Frost exercise with --I believe-- a medevac involvement. Somebody's E-model. Seems the winds were out-of-limits per the 616MAG local directive. I don't believe that wind limits were specified in the 22AF Summary; just the "strip check" part. Icy runway? Have to see some pictures and the report. If it was significant ice on runway, you'd have to be nuts to go in there with strong and/or gusty wind period. I think what got 'em was combination of x-wind, light weight, slippery to some extent, and pulling 'em to max reverse right away with 100% flap extended. I believe I remember the safety report brought in some aspect of a crewmember's previous personal life; which I thought was just chicken dirt, having nothing to do with flying an airplane.  Like I said, long time ago.

      Doctor Visit
      By Sonny · Posted
      A man goes to the doctor and tells him that he hasn't been feeling well. The doctor examines him, leaves the room and comes back with three different bottles of pills. The doctor says, "Take the green pill with a big glass of water when you get up. Take the blue pill with a big glass of water after lunch. Then just before going to bed, take the red pill with another big glass of water." Startled to be put on so much medicine the man stammers, "My goodness, doc, exactly what's my problem?" Doctor says, "You're not drinking enough water.”

      We've all had the annoying experience of calling up a hotline and waiting on the phone for eons to hear all the choices the lucky touch-tone dialers receive. Well, think how frustrating that would be if you were calling the.... PSYCHIATRIC HOTLINE The telephone rings and an answering machine answers... "Welcome to the psychiatric hotline." If you are obsessive compulsive, please press one repeatedly. If you are codependent, please ask someone to press 2. If you have multiple personalities, please press 3, 4, 5, and 6. If you are paranoid/delusional, we know who you are, what you want, just stay on the line so that we can trace your call. If you are a schizophrenic, listen carefully, and a little voice will tell you which number to press. If your are manic depressive, it doesn't matter which number you press....no one will answer any way.

      Definitely NOT an SOS crew.  It was a crew from Pope (39th).  I was in the same squadron.  As mentioned, they may have been a SOLL II crew, but were certainly not from Florida or an SOS sq.

      Hi there, During landing, it was a very smooth landing - 4 engines to Flight Idle, 1000/1200 PSI each. - 4 engines to Ground Idle, the torque is increased and no-reverse is experienced in four engines. - The power cannot be lowered and the landing run is made with between 5000/6000 PSI (GI) - Brakes are burnt The blades never went to reverse pitch, is it possible that because of the smooth landing the touchdown relay was relieved during a short "flotation" period (1 or 2 seconds) and it prevented the four propellers from going to reverse angle..?
