Trip 281: Load up for a ball buster of a long trip to Paris, Iraq, and California. First stop ran into an ole Jersey friend.

Image

Love a short first day with a 20 minute flight, and then put the jet to bed for wild Virginia night.

Image

Rally up early next morning for a full load of fuel.

Image

Stackin’ banks while drainin’ tanks!

Image

“Hey Cap’n! Where are we?” “I have no idea.”

Image

New copilot signed off on escape rope use. Q1.

Image

Crusin’ in over the beaches of Normandy.

Image

Weathered in. No drop. D-Day Delayed.

Image

Second time seeing the Eiffel Tower. First time from the air.

Image

Image

“50”. Landing crew. Paris–Le Bourget Airport

Image

I think we are parking over there.

Image

Hero shot.

Image

These boys work fast.

Image

Better shot.

Image

Both are technical achievements, but only one is cool.

Image

Tag team haulin’.

Image

“So, you want me to squawk 7500?” “Uhhh... Yeah.”

Image

Frenchy controller let his buddy take off first.

Image

Fluffy grounds crew.

Image

Heading out of France, we didn’t get to stay.

Image

Late night landing in Germany. These suck for a few reasons. Don’t have enough time to get in trouble downtown, don’t have anywhere on base to go, so it’s just drink in the room.

Image

Words of wisdom from a wise loadsmasher.

Image

Next thing that sucks after trying to sleep through the day, is an 2200 alert to take off the next night. Chilly smoky startup!

Image

Headin’ into Iraq. This combat entry checklist calls for combat cake!

Image

No problems in and out of Iraq, so we are forever chasing the sun for another evening in Germany.

Image

German twilight.

Image

Team Dover all over the world!

Image

Flyin’ Crew Chief emergency supplies.

Image

Made it to a Maineiac morning for a Bangor gas stop.

Image

Stackin’ banks while drainin’ tanks!

Image

Holding for this guy to get his checklists together. In the thickest Maineiac accent, “We need a minute.” Check your rearview mirror bud!

Image

Southwest 737 makin’ money.

Image

Are we there yet?

Image

Can’t recall if I’ve seen the golden gate bridge before.

Image

Pretty like a picture.

Image

Spending the night in the land of Google.

Image

Image

Fill ‘er up Friday.

Image

“Chief you got those fuels balanced perfect.” “Hell yeah brother!”

Image

If you’re lost, they’ll come find you.

Image

You want maximum rate time to climb? You got it!

Image

Image

Image

My camera is squawking 7500!

Image

On to the next one...
