Flight/Planes

Hi Damon, this was an interesting report. I didn't know there were still Viet Nam helicopters still in use. I am glad nobody got hurt.
As long as the helicopters and planes have regular maintenance, they can last for a long time. it just costs more as the aircraft gets older.

Very reassuring.
Do I detect some sarcasm here lol. Every Russian spy has to have the name Sergey too, I think it is a rule.
 
They always let us know not to freak out when they are training. This one looks to be noisy! lol

Camp Atterbury will be hosting an AC-130J Ghostrider for aerial gunnery TRAINING! The TRAINING will take place between 1200-1800 on 28DEC2023. I repeat, this is strictly TRAINING and will focus on the 105mm howitzer and the 30mm minigun. If you see this beast making 45° banks around Camp Atterbury on 28DEC2023 and unleashing controlled fury, do not be alarmed as it is YOUR service members honing their skills to protect our freedoms.

Let Freedom Ring!

Back in the late 90s I had an opportunity to fly aboard an AC-130U on a night training mission from Hulbert Field in Florida. I bravely declined. Several years earlier I also declined to fly on a WC-130 "Hurricane Hunter" during a mission from Kessler AFB in Mississippi. Those C-130 guys seemed intent on killing me.
