This is one of my favorite stories of the year. Air power!

In the wrong neighborhood it would have been chopped up by the time they came lookin for it.


Truth. I was stationed at Bragg. There's a reason they call Fayetteville "Fayettenam".

My personal favorite airlift story is the time a C-141 tried to "smuggle" a Christmas tree in and dropped it over California.

Favorite story all time is The Battle of Palmdale.

Palmdale reminds me of the flyaway Auster here in Australia..



The engine roared to life. Unfortunately, Tony had forgotten to apply the hand-brake and chock the wheels, so the little high-winged monoplane started to move. Somehow, the force of the “start-up” caused the throttle to slide and the aircraft’s engine revs built up. It rolled forward at startling speed. Tony tried to grab a wing-struck as it sped past. He was unsuccessful. He missed. The next instant the aircraft, after rolling a very short distance, was airborne - and climbing steadily into the North-west.
