Mike, reminds me of when I left Texas early Dec. and in the low 80's only to get off the plane at K.I. Sawyer AFB in Mi. and the temp 15 below zero....and I still had on my summer blues!! (Worst winter on record, 1966, until a few years ago)
That base was shut down a few years ago as well. Seen enough snow to last me a lifetime.

Ron! What does your post have to do with the U S Air Force? You Groundpounders just trying to mess with us fly boys? Just wondering.

Martin, there's a term USAF pilots use for well-equipped and trained ground troops- - - - - -"Target!"
LOL!

Yep

What are the survival odds, both ways, between a pilot/jet/plane and a Surface-to-Air equipped ground troup (with little need for education or training)?

They do not even need to be able to read the instructions on the weapon?
Jump out of your hole/cave/hovel, and point, and pull the trigger?

- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler.

Yes, Alvin, and those of us who did not serve are (or, should be,) forever grateful to/for those who served.

I was on a permissive TAD trip to Washington D.C. to run the 1982 Marine Corps Marathon. There were about 20 of us from Camp Pendleton who were running in formation. We flew cross country in a C5. A very impressive aircraft I might add. We got into ? Dover maybe ? It's been a while, but the Air Force put us up for the night in a nice barracks and fed us in a superb chow hall. I was always somewhat jealous of the perks that the Air Force has.


Another quality post.

The absolute best chow hall I ever ate in was at Kadena AFB on Okinawa. We generally ate pretty good on the Rosey (USS FDR) but Kadena AFB beat it out by a nose. LOL.

One of my BIL's nephew was an AF PJ, he was one squared away airman.
