RE: Flyover Help

Try your Army National Guard. We are not nearly as sexy, supposedly, as fast movers. But there certainly is something to be said for a Black Hawk, or two, roaring over with the right timing. I work for a Guard Flight Support Facility and have had a hand in alot of these types of missions, and have t...

RE: US Army Helicopter Pilots

I believe there are actually quite a few Army Aviators on the site. With a wide range of platforms between us. I'm a Black Hawk driver myself, Chief Warrant Officer 2 flavored. In regards to your question, your asking a very generic question and seem to be expecting a very detailed answer. In Army r...

RE: Training Helicopter Crash At Fort Rucker

Well I pretty much flushed everything I learned about the Creek, the moment I had my last checkride in it to make room for Black Hawk knowledge. But your not that far off from the truth with the weight issue. I'd have to check my Op Supp, but I believe max gross was 3350. We mostly fly with only stu...

10/23/1983 - Beirut Incident Remembered

It really is so sad that I have not heard a single mention of this event by any of the major media outlets. I have to confess that I probably would have forgotten myself if not for this post. One of the most poignant moments of my life was the day that I was tasked with leading a funeral detail for ...

RE: Question On US Army Aviation

I'd say the No education thing really is due to the fact that the Army is I think the only branch that offers a "High School to Flight School" recruitement program. But there are only a few of those slots handed out a year. And they really are far from handed out. The kids that I've met down here th...

I've seen 3 actual traps, all at OTIS ANGB and involving the F-15's stationed there. One practice/test of the trap equipement, as well as 2 IFE involv...

We were talking about this at work this afternoon. I drill, and work a full time schedule for the Army at Otis ANGB. I would agree with you that this is suspicious, but Cape Cod has crime issues just like any other region. The base may have only become involved simply because it shortens the trip be...
