Moments after sunrise, the cargo plane burst through storm clouds to the east of the roadway at about 240 miles per hour. 500 feet off each wingtip was an A10.

    C-130 News: 908th Airlift Wing remembers 9/11 with flyover

    Remembering the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, provides little cause to celebrate for the vast majority of United States citizens, including members of the Armed Forces.  Many face the day with somber reverence to the memory of all the victims and the heroes that sacrificed themselves that day (and for the 20 years since) so that others may live in peace and security. The significance is not lost on the Airmen of the 908th Airlift Wing, who, despite continuing to conduct tactical airlift

    The pressure escapes through the pump itself, as it spins the pump/motor backwards. That’s why we always gave it a bit before we turned the pump back on.

      By Sonny · Posted

Is that right?'   'Yes, that's right,' I told her.   'Well,

      A woman from the deepest, most southern part of Alabama goes into the local newspaper office to see that the obituary for her recently deceased husband is written. The obit editor informs her that the fee for the obituary is 50 cents a word.   She pauses, reflects and then says, "Well, then, let it read, 'Billy Bob died'."   Amused at the woman's thrift, the edito
