Few pics from our Christmas party for the little ones. They all thought it was great
We also had a jet set up for the kids to sit in
"Now, the only remaining question. Where do I put my bag o' toys on this rig?"
See that droptank on the center of the fuselage? Some droptanks aren't tanks, but instead storage containers.
so thats how he gets his presents to all the kids in the world so fast, i get it now
Soo did the kids have to throw on cranials mr. QA????
Yep. "Here kid! Here's that [insert toy here] you always wanted or needed because you were an angel this year! Courtesy of Santa Claus and the U.S. Air Force!"
that would be US Navy
*slaps self* Why did I say Air Force, the creampuff branch? Brief lapse of memory's then what I'm blaming that on.
Have you ever tried to work on a jet when it's 120 degrees outside (which means its about 140 at least inside the jet)? The guys that fly desks here might be, but there are plenty of us who actually do work.
never been to the gulf huh?
yep in the gulf, on a aircraft carrier, with a F-14 turning on you
120+10 cause the flight deck is hotter+tomcat exaust=
stupid f-ing hott
feels like your hair is burning off
Of course I had one on too Yeah right
I was on the gulf coast in the UAE this summer, going back in February/March-ish. I work on tankers, no need to stick them way up front
To say the least. Gets so hot and humid almost feels like you can't breathe
How often do you take breaks in that kind of heat, and how much ice-cold water you drinking? A whole gallon every half-hour?
Well my job was pretty easy and we were doing two hour shifts on the flight deck. I am not sure ow much my camelback holds, but I would drink one about every 45 minutes to an hour. There are others that are on the deck much longer. Some people are up there for 12-14 hours coming down for meals and short breaks when they can. It's a very ****ty place to work at. The gulf not the flight deck..I actually don't really mind the flight deck
most of the camelbacks hold about 3 liters.
I have one of the new smaller ones I don't think it holds that much maybe 1.5 liters.
yep beeing a shooter, i diddent have time to do allot, barley had time to eat the crappy boat food.
i was just glad we only had 5 jets, and mabye 3 up at a time.
