  2. Navarre was such a fun time, sit on the back porch with a cooler and listen to the melodies of 20,40, and 105mm. I also liked working swings, easy to tell when they were on the way home, we would just listen for the 40 dump at the end.
  3. The last time I saw the maintainers shirt for sale was about two years ago here at DM. I will look to see if they have more floating around in clothing sales or something. The t-shirt I saw/have is black with the maint badge on the front left and the saying on the back. Yes there was one for the pilots too, but we all know that one didn't sell at all:)

    Why is I get the same looks from my eng when I tell him that? Love the lapes idea going to try it out later see if it works.
  8. I know we never flew with one but of course that was by design :cool:. What a rush that must have been to see the door fly off in front off you. I would really need some new nomex after that one.

    If the beer haze will fade for a minute...the plane was 7898. Only remember because it had some of the old time VCR equipment right there by the crew door. I also want to say that the fix was P.F.Magic. As soon as the camera went in the problem stopped. Maybe it was shy?

  11. I remember a few years ago stopping there, you can still see the bullet holes in the tower. Must have been one helluva firefight that night.

    We had a young man out here forget to close the fuel shut off valve. Thats right you guessed it he disconnected the fuel line and well wouldn't you know There was just a bit more than a bucket full. Needless to say after pulling floor panels etc... the smell finally went away. The worst was he was training the FNG's we had at the time.
