Hey Adrian, now that we've moved to Magnolia, we find ourselves in the Dover AFB flight path. I often wonder if that's you flying over our house. Stay safe.

Are you going to be at the air show/open house in September?

Hi guys! I am looking at your photos and they are stunning. You are doing a great job, guys. I envy that you have such a great profession. I was always dreaming to fly, but unfortunately, I had no such possibility. I am from the Seattle zip code location. Do you know if there are some flying shows in my area? I would visit such an event with pleasure. Please let me know.

Hi friends. I had some time off to edit old photos from a few years ago. Lets see if I remember how to do this still...

Off to go play.

Headin’ down to 500 feet above the deck for low level play time.

Low level dodging F/A-18’s. It’s a non-stop roller coaster ride 500 feet from the ground in circles at 70 degrees of bank.

You're still flying missions? You mean the war is not on hold?

When I was in the Army we went on a field training exercise in February one time. The ground was frozen solid! I was the Motor Sgt. for the MP company and guys and I were trying to put up all the GP tents, several mediums and a large for the prisoner detainment center. The problem was that all the wooden stakes (yes, it was LONG ago sonny!) kept splitting and would not go into the ground. So finally we are literally out of stakes and then acting company commander, a 1LT, gets all pissed off and calls off the FTX. So being a bit of a wise ass I shout out, "War's over due to the cold GIs, everyone back to the company area!". Well, did I get a ass chewing for that from the 1LT.

But not as bad as he caught from the Battalion Commander when we got back for calling off the war....
:D
