    A C-130 pilot described his “rude awakening” when he first flew into Vietnam. What he thought were fireworks celebrating his arrival, was enemy ground fire. A C-130 combat pilot and veteran of 72 combat missions in Vietnam said the enemy fired on his hulking four engine cargo plane on every landing and takeoff but he never found a bullet hole in his plane. “My angels have been watching over me. That's all I can say. I've been very, very fortunate. I've been very blessed,” said Jim Warn

    Make sure that the ring for the chain is connected to the side of the pin and not to the button.  If the chain is connected to a ring on the button, it can release the pin if the chain is pulled on.

    Found a C130-E slip stick online

    Managed to finally find one online.  I have been looking for years.  Found it on E-Bay and snapped it up.  Army Outfitters in New York had it.  Now all I have to do is see if I remember how to use it.  Probably need to find a Form F online.

    • Satan In Church
      By Sonny · Posted
      A few minutes before the church services started, the congregation was sitting in their pews and talking. Suddenly, Satan appeared at the front of the church.   Everyone started screaming and running for the back entrance, trampling each other in a frantic effort to get away from evil incarnate. Soon the church was empty except for one elderly gentleman who sat calmly in his pew without moving, seemingly oblivious to the fact that God's ultimate enemy was in his presence.

      Right? Everyones “copy paste share” status will die with me.   Please put this as your status if you know someone who has been eaten by dragons. Dragons are nearly unstoppable and, in case you didn't know, they can breathe fire. 93% of people won't copy and paste this, because they have been eaten by dragons. The other 7% of people are sitting in the shower armed with fire extinguishers and will (hopefully) put this as their status.

      Please copy and paste this to your status if you're constantly being asked to copy and paste things to your status by friends who copy and paste things to their status. Many people won't copy and paste this, but my true sarcastic friends will copy and paste it because they know this was copied and pasted from a dear friend in need of more stuff to copy and paste; and if you don't copy and paste it, then this means you hate Jesus, kittens, and puppies, and bacon. And if you hate bacon, the terror

      DILBERT'S WORDS OF WISDOM:   1. I can please only one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow, isn't looking good either. 2. I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing sound they make as they go flying by. 3. Am I getting smart with you? How would you know? 4. I'd explain it to you, but your brain would explode.
