Dude, it was a joke. Apart from the fact that 3 out of the 4 times I was scheduled to refuel A model C-5's (Westover and Kelly jets) they canceled for maintenence, it's just a good natured joke. Like the one about what it means to visit Dover and not see any C-5's on jacks.......They must be out of jacks. I've seen many C-17's broke....Ramstein, Hickam, Yokota, the list goes on and on. Both airplanes (C-17 and the C-5) break alot. It's a fact of life. Just as sure as the sun coming up in the morning. If my comment offended you, I regret that. But it was a joke.
PS, thanks LY744!
Why is it my best contacts are when no one else is looking!
