rw605's Achievements


Newbie (1/14)



  1. I was at Mcchord 86-87, and we had a group of 130's from Rhode Island ANG (if i remember right) pass thru going to Alaska, and one was a Roman nose. I remember seeing it land and saw that bright light on the nose.
  2. I haven't seen this for ages, I have it on a VCR tape and stumbled upon it on YouTube
  3. Stopped by Wright Pat on a road trip 2 years ago, and took these photos. Thanks for sharing the story.
  4. This link says the 135's will go to Ramstein and the SOG (130's and Osprey's) are going to Spandahlem http://www.stripes.com/news/europe/raf-mildenhall-to-close-amid-other-europe-consolidations-1.322825
  5. I am currently reading a book called Outlaws Inc, it is a book about ex soviet airmen and the IL-76's they fly. I just started a chapter about West Africa and there is a reference to a guy called "Non-Sched Fred" in it. Must be him!
  6. Came across this on the web http://www.foxnews.com/us/2014/08/19/after-60-years-c-130-still-magnificent-machine/
  7. Thanks guys! I thought it looked like a B, but wasn't sure. I enjoyed cranking up the volume when it took off...great sound!
  8. Just came across this video on the web. What model is this? http://web.orange.co.uk/article/news/nelson_mandela_s_body_to_be_flown_to_funeral

    SEFE George, I don't know if this will help, but you can search by unit for awards here. http://access.afpc.af.mil/AwardsDMZ/SearchAwards.aspx
  10. Hey US Herk, I do remember 0193 & 0194 being at Mildenhall plus the other three tail #'s you listed.
  11. I always get the 10% at Lowes and Home Depot with no questions asked. I too only found out about the discount at Lowes and Home Depot by someone at the next register asking about it. A few weeks prior to finding out about it, I had just spent a bunch of money at Lowes for all the materials for a new kitchen floor, so I took in all my receipts and they credited me the discount on everything I had bought.
  12. Ran across this link with video http://www2.tbo.com/news/breaking-news/2012/jul/20/18/huge-air-force-cargo-plane-lands-at-davis-islands--ar-437276/
  13. I thought that was fuel in the 141 struts...because if you compressed them at an angle (wrong) to un-install them, the stuff would leak out all over. I was surprised how durable the milkstools were after seeing so many thrown out troop doors buy pissed off loads.
