Who is it ?


Recommended Posts

I'm having some trouble with my email and can't seem to be able to go back to old emails, and I'm looking for the fellow that emailed me with information on my old aircraft #877. Memory is a fragile thing (at my age!), and I can't remember who you are!!! Please email me at [email protected] and if that one doesn't work use [email protected].

Thanks.....Chris

Hi Leland

Yep, you're the guy!!! Wife and I went down to Peoria last week for two days to visit my old bird. You folks out there would not believe the reception we got; it's too long a story for the forum, but we were escorted around the base by the base Commander himself!!! The Colonel in charge of maint. made sure we had access to the flight line that evening and the next day they made access to my old plane #877!!! From the Base Commander, Col. "Robbie" Robertson, Colonel Welker, Lt.Colonel Hart, Sgt. Snook, and all the rest of the various personell, all treated us like royalty!! They had me sign and date the flight deck, interviewed me for the base news letter, passed on to me the written history of the plane, even dug up her last few maint. records. When she retired in 2005 she had 30,050 hours on her!!!! The crew that flew her in said she flew like silk!!!!!

I've posted pictures on my personal gallery. They start with 028 and run in sequence till the end. If you look carefully you'll see a pattern.....

Thanks so much Leland!!!

Hi Guy's, The wife and I just left on a 10 to 14 day trip east, so I'll post more pics when I get home. In the mean time, if you go to the C-130 data base on this site you will find several pics of the bird.

Hey Giz , so you got to meet Chris! He's not a bad guy--for an older gentleman that is! I don't know what Mary sees in him!!!!

As far as you being real, I will wait to see what Chris says! I suppose he will have some pictures!!!

Isn't it neat that some of the guys on this forum are getting to meet each other!!!

Maybe someday we can have a Forum reunion!!!

Well anyway,

Ken

Older gentleman indeed!!!!!!! At least you had enough respect for your elder to use the term "gentleman"!!!!!

You are correct Ken, it is a pleasure to meet with folks from this forum. I've met two so far, that until very recently had been complete strangers and it has been an enjoyable visit both times. I'm sure that I will be friends with both you and Paul for a long time. There is a lot of United States between you and Giz, but each location is unique and I enjoy them both. Although there is a hell of a lot more space in Montana than in Maryland!!!!!!!

My thanks to Casey and his "Herky Site". Without you, Casey, I would not have had the pleasure of making two very special new friends

Well said Casey. And thanks to your perseverance you have managed to keep this place running!!

Ken

I concur 100% I don't know what inspired you to set this up, or to perservere through all the agravation, work, etc. it takes to keep it running, but I think all of us owe you, as we say in the 18th century.. " A GRAND HUZZAH!!"

Huzzah,

Giz
