Had a Strike Eagle take out landing lights 90 minutes before Bush landed at Hickam. They're trained to touch down in the first few hundred feet of runway, but sometimes they get a little TOO low.

We always called them LAPES packages. Kind of a pain to rig...but a real treat to see them in action. In the late 90's I was the DZ (drop zone) coordinator for a RODEO in 97 or 98 at McChord and Fort Lewis.

Funny story...I was setting up q G-11 cargo chute to provide shade over some bleachers for DV's and a wind storm came, took the chute and bleachers across the DZ and we had to postpone drops for several hours while we cleared an alternate DZ. I'll never forget the lessons learned that day. Salute sharply...and press on.


I guess I should also add that RODEO's are the equivalent of RED FLAG in the heavy world.

This video reminds me of the only thing I really love about air travel. Being able to slip the head phones on and listen to music like this. Take off from SeaTac in the drizzling rain, then break through the cloud deck into the sun.
It's like the oppressive hand of life suddenly releases you to the ethereal freedom of the sky and you feel like your a part of something bigger.

Thanks for the video....even if you did show mine up a little.

Just another routine flight in an A340, until there is a nice boring engine shutdown.

This was an excellent video. This exact situation happened to me on a flight from Seattle to Honolulu. (DC-8 engine oil pressure problem and fuel dump over Western WA) we had just gotten out over the Pacific when the problem occurred. It is nice to be able to see what actually happened in the cockpit that day.

It always amazes me how calm they are in those situations.

We used to call the IGD the CSD, and it was a pain in the ass.

Another wild one. Precious Metal loses her engine passing pylon 3 during the Reno races, and has to deadstick in.

Damn, engine failure in a steep bank at low altitude...he's lucky he didn't kiss the desert floor on that one.

S^F thanks for the great video.

I was based at Langley when the Airforce first got their F-15s

There were many demo airshows for the brass and dignitaries.

We had just returned from the pentagon and I had a 2 star (who was a friend) and a Army Major on board who hated just about everything that had an airforce logo on it.

As an F-15 was departing Langley the Major started a rant about how many tanks the Army could buy for the cost of one F-15... I listened for a bit and in the true tradition of not giving a crap I finally told him that he was correct on the cost but one F-15 could take-out his 5 battle tanks..

I liked pricking majors who thought they would make Colonel by spouting off about crap they did not know anything about especially if my 2 star was standing next to me laughing and grinning.. The major did not make Colonel and was forced out at 18 years... No military retirement for him which was sad, but it happened to many Majors..

I used to love turn and burn.. Boom and zoom did not do much for the ego but it probably was a smarter way to go..

When the first C-5 was delivered to the Air Force, the commander of MAC picked it up, and flew it to its new home. They had the full up ceremony ready. Band was on the ramp, streamers, VIPs, whole nine yards.

The flight was totally uneventful, until landing. On touching down, 16 of the 28 tires blew out. The C-5 can taxi with up to 14 of them blown with no problem. They had to sit on the runway, while maintenance changed a bunch of tires, so they could taxi it in for the ceremony.
