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.

Wild weather from the flight deck of a 737.

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.
