Ready to leave South Vietnam, but traffic is a bitch at the airport. They were also worried we’d get lost and required an escort to the runway.

Image

Crossin’ into North Vietnam with the official headgear. I guess I'll have to get one at the next stop to fit in.

Image

B-52's ran this same route.

Image

Easy there Cap’n, we ain’t no wild weasel.

Image

Landing in Hanoi @ Noi Bai International Airport. Loadmaster was blasting CCR on the PA for our passengers.

Image

Checked into Hanoi Hilton. No shit either. Right next door to the famous one that is now a museum. We visit that later.

Image

I don’t know how to caption this.

Image

Oh dick, what are we getting into?

Image

Get on your bikes and ride! This was literally 3 dollars to rent for the day. The girl running the stand asked if we knew where to go. No idea really, the last person I ever knew to come here was my uncle in the 70’s. “I’ve got 20 bucks if you can lead us around for a bit.” She pulled the garage door closed, locked it, flipped the closed sign out, and we had a guide for the whole day. Apparently, I should have started my bid lower. Oh well.

Image

I got a good feeling about this.

Which wire does what?

B-52 museum piece. This has an interesting somberness to us as an aircrew.

A backup generator used by the Hanoi Radio Station to ensure uninterrupted power supply during the Vietnam War.

Image

Image

How they keep this all straight, I couldn’t tell you.

Image

New official headgear.

Image

Image

Our ever helpful scooter tourguide.

Image

Next stop to visit the Hanoi Hilton museum.

Image

HA! Well that’s one way to spin it.

Oddly, my history books show a different experience for downed American pilots.

Image

Well this is accurate.

Image

Three wheels of fury.

Image

Laundry service was quick. I normally only fly with a 7day bag good for one extra pair in case of emergency beyond that. This was a trip that never seemed to end, “Bingo underwear! Danger danger!”

Image

Well Vietnam, it’s been real. Time to get on to the next one. Next stop, The Philippines.

Image

Public transit and crazy traffic in the Philippines.

Image

Image

Image

Next stop was the last stop of the trip in Hawaii. Met up with ole Dover friends, and had a great time.

Image

Just a few steps from where we had parked the airplane, we were shown this cool plaque. “On this spot Apollo 8 Astronauts Colonel Frank Borman, Captain James Lovell, & Lt Colonel William Anders first touched Earth at 14:37:35 after their historic manned flight around the moon 28 December 1968.”

Image

Image

Image

Later Hawaii, it’s been real!

Image

Last leg headin’ home after a long and fun filled trip. Left turn Clyde!

Quick trip out and back to the desert. Nothing really new, but nothing went wrong, so I’ll call it a win.

Image

Fill ‘er up.

Image

Passed 2000 feet below by a 777.

Image

Beast of an airplane, and within a short time was over a mile away.

Image

Best job I ever had!

Image

On to the next one,
Adrianspeeder

Next up is a trip to Colorado, but first we need beetle spray treatment.

“Uhh, how safe is this stuff to breathe if no one can be on the jet when you are spraying?”

“You’ll be fine. Have a great day!”

Image

Stuff smells great!

Image

Mile high militia!

Image

Image

Altimeter shows 9000 feet, but that ground ain’t far away.

Image

Headin’ home for the next one. Hold onto your butts, it’s a good one!

Loaded up and ready to ride for my first trip to the state of Arizona. One more pin on the map, and we are coming in force.

Image

Ready for takeoff in sequence.

Image

Fly fatty fly!

Image

Headin’ out west over some pretty country.

Image

He grows up so fast. From a dollar rider Lt to a left seat aircraft commander.

Image

First trip into Arizona. Oddly, from the air it looked pretty much the same as Iraq.
