Ok...here is another one..
When my family and I went to Guam we took a MATS "The Military Air Transport Service (MATS) ..this was a slow 4 pro engine plane. Real slow. We flew
from El Toro Marine base California to Guam in this thing. It took I think 36 hours hahahah..or more ..well it was more ...I'm sure ..because:
We took off from Wake Island ..it was our forth pit stop I believe and about an hour out from Wake island I said to my brother ..I'd hate to be
stationed there ...to small and nothing to do..blah blah blah...and my rother said ..well will never go there again...my dad said ..we probably will
when we come back to the states...
My mom said...we will be paying for a Pan Am jet ..(to my dad) there is no way I will go through this again..so we will not be seeing Wake Island
again!! My dad said..of course ..this flight isn't that bad... (it was hot and stuffy in that old plane and noisy hahaha..and more..)
anyway after they went back and forth for awhile and me and my brother were trading Items from our "box lunches" that were passed out to us...
My brother looked out the window ...he had the widow seat ..and said...hey "my name" ...that engine is on fire!!
Yep...the far # 4 engine was out and smoking...flames coming out a bit...
My dad was about to get up and go talk to someone about this ..when ...we were told we were turning around aand heading back to Wake Island.
We made it! . But ..we did see Wake island again ...lol!!
When we left Guam two years later ...we flew in a regular jet ...hahahahah
