This new airframe will not only replace the legacy HC-130 fleet but with its arrival also comes the elimination of two aviation career fields: Flight Engineer and Airborne Mission Systems Specialist. “This is the first time in my Air Force career that I’m switching jobs,” said Senior Master Sgt. Jesus Ulloa, 39th Rescue Squadron

    A pilot friend of mine told me the airplane was a Delta 757-300.  They have overwing slides stored in compartments outside the pressurized fuselage that deploy for egress down the wing's trailing edge. Don R.

    Keystone Kapers-----for you Naha Guys

    Naminoue sounds better makes me think of my second home when back at Naha and not in country. Have you Ken or Sonny heard of or read Sam McGowans "Jacks Steakhouse" ? Of the books he has written finally us "maintenance pukes" getting some recognition !! I am sure 2 Crew/Chiefs as yourselves will identify with the characters involved. As a rebuttal I apologise for using the "Maintenance Pukes"

    Keystone Kapers-----for you Naha Guys

    Sonny, thanks. I found a place today that knows just what I want, and what they would cost each. Of course they haven't seen the booklet yet!  The best part is there is no minimum order. I will let you know when I see them again. Probably next  week.  There is some funny but true things that I had forgotten about in that booklet. I remember now that I should have read the book before I ever went down town!😀 Bug me if you think I am dragging my feet! I do have a developing case of

    Looks mean for sure, just wondering how long it would take to open the main radome or better yet, to change it.

      It was Christmas and the judge was in a benevolent mood as he questioned the prisoner. "What are you charged with?" he asked. "Doing my Christmas shopping early," replied the defendant. "That's no offense," replied the judge. "How early were you doing this shopping?" "Before the store opened," countered the prisoner.
