      Rookie Police Officer
      By Sonny · Posted
      Rookie Police Officer:   A rookie police officer was out for his first ride in a cruiser with an experienced partner. A call came in telling them to disperse some people who were loitering.   The officers drove to the street and observed a small crowd standing on a corner.   The rookie rolled down his window and said, "Let's get off the corner people."   A few glances, but no one moved, so he barked again, "Let's get off that corner... NOW!"   Intimidated, the group of people began to leave, casting puzzled stares in his direction.   Proud of his first official act, the young policeman turned to his partner and asked, "Well, how did I do?"   Pretty good," chuckled the vet, "especially since this is a bus stop."

      C-130 News: KC-130J experiences loss of pressurization
      By Casey · Posted
      Tanker grounded while Corps probes Tuesday aviation mishap The Marine Corps on Friday announced the indefinite grounding of the tanker aircraft that mysteriously lost cabin pressure four days earlier, triggering an emergency landing and hospital care for five troops. “We want to identify exactly what caused this mishap, to learn the lessons from it and ensure that we prevent future problems,” said Marine spokeswoman Capt. Morgan M. Frazer. The pressure dip occurred around 11:20 a.m. Tuesday while the Lockheed Martin C-130J Super Hercules tanker was at 21,000 feet after taking off from Marine Corps Air Station Miramar. It was flying toward Fort Carson, Colorado, to drop off 46 members of Camp Pendleton’s 3rd Low Altitude Air Defense Battalion for training, Frazer said. The aviation crew of six “Raiders” from Miramar-based Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 352 immediately took the four-engine turboprop plane to 10,000 feet before returning to Miramar to make an emergency landing. “The crew acted properly to safely deliver the passengers to the ground,” said Frazer. The next day, four Marines and a sailor passenger began showing symptoms of decompression sickness and were treated and released by physicians at Naval Medical Center San Diego. Tuesday’s mishap came only four days after Marine Commandant Gen. Robert B. Neller ordered all squadrons to pause flights for 24-hour safety training. His call for crews to rehash the “fundamentals of safe flight operations” came in the wake of a slew of Marine aircraft accidents worldwide. The Raiders’ stand down is slated for Monday at Miramar. Three Marines died on Aug. 5 when an MV-22B Osprey assigned to the “Dragons” of the Japan-based Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 265 crashed in Australia’s Shoalwater Bay during a routine training exercise. On July 10, a Hercules KC-130T aircraft crewed by the “Yankees” of the New York-based Marine Aerial Refueler Transport Squadron 45 crashed into a bean field in rural Mississippi. Fifteen Marines and a sailor died. The next day at Marine Corps Air Station New River in North Carolina, lightning struck three mechanics, killing one, while they worked on an MV-22B Osprey. They were assigned to the “Raging Bulls” of Marine Medium Tiltrotor Squadron 261. Source: http://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/military/sd-me-tanker-mishap-20170818-story.html

      Business one-liners 25 & 26:   Everybody should believe in something, I believe I'll have another beer.   Everybody's gotta be someplace.   Everyone breaks more than the seven-year-bad-luck allotment to cover rotten luck throughout an entire lifetime.   Everyone has a scheme for getting rich that will not work.   Everyone has a scheme that will not work.   Everyone hits a brick wall now and then; the trick is not to do it with your head.   Everything east of the San Andreas fault will eventually plunge into the Atlantic Ocean.   Everything happens at the same time with nothing in between.   Everything in moderation, including moderation.   Everything is actually everything else, just recycled.   Business one-liners 26:   Everything is always done for the wrong reasons.   Everything put together sooner or later falls apart.   Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler.   Everything takes longer than you think.   Everything tastes more or less like chicken.   Everything worthwhile is mandatory, prohibited, or taxed.   Everything you know is wrong, but you can be straightened out.   Excellence can be attained if you care more than others think is wise, risk more than others think is safe, dream more than others think is practical, expect more than others think is possible.   Exceptions always outnumber rules.

      Golf

      Golf
        In primitive society, when native tribes beat the ground with clubs and yelled, it was called witchcraft; today, in civilized society, it is called golf.

      Golf is an expensive way of playing marbles.

      The secret of good golf is to hit the ball hard, straight and not too often.

      There are three ways to improve your golf game: take lessons, practice constantly -- or start cheating.

      An amateur golfer is one who addresses the ball twice - once before swinging, and once again, after swinging.

      Many a golfer prefers a golf cart to a caddy because it cannot count, criticize or laugh.

      Golf is a game in which the slowest people in the world are those in front of you, and the fastest are those behind.

      There's no game like golf: you go out with three friends, play eighteen holes, and return with three enemies.

      Golf got its name because all of the other four letter words were taken.

      Business one-liners 23 & 24:   Don't stop to stomp on ants when the elephants are stampeding.   Don't try to have the last word; you might get it.   Don't worry about the sand in the Vaseline, they don't use it anyway.   Due to recent budget cuts and downsizing, the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off.   Each problem solved introduces a new unsolved problem.   Eagles may soar, free and proud, but weasels never get sucked into jet engines.   Early to rise and early to bed makes a man healthy and wealthy and dead.   Easiest way to figure the cost of living: take your income and add ten percent.   Eat the rich. The poor are tough and stringy.   Efficiency is a highly developed form of laziness.   Business one-liners 24:   Eighty percent of all people consider themselves to be above average.   Enough research will tend to support your theory.   Entropy has us outnumbered.   Error is often more earnest than truth.   Even a stopped clock is right twice a day.   Even if the grass is greener on the other side: they, like you, still have to cut it.   Even paranoids have enemies.   Every silver lining has a cloud around it.   Every solution breeds new problems.   Everybody is somebody else's weirdo.

      wonderful
      By petertohen · Posted
      I was lucky enough to meet Bobby Dugger and this great aircraft this weekend and began to wonder what she looked like in those Vietnam days. I have a C-130 kit (the Italeri H version) and was thinking of building it to reflect the aircraft from that harrowing mission. Can anyone help with info or pictures? Many thanks in advance! http://parkflyerplastics.com/cart/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=503
