very cool! C17 - the sports model of the C5

we left NAS North Island in this one headed for Kuwait.. during the flight brief, the young airman warned us about air sickness during a scheduled in flight refueling scheduled over the east coast..

I asked him if I could go to the cockpit to watch and he said no one had ever asked him but he would find out.. few minutes later he returned and said the captain would allow only one in the cockpit and I was it

4-5 hours later the airman woke me up an took me up front and they let me sit in the forward facing seat behind the pilot! can't even describe how awesome it was to experience the approach and fueling boom connection from the cockpit of a c5.. they made several approaches and breakaways for training so I got to see it a few times..

but then..... something went wrong and one of the probe components broke! I was suddenly escorted back to my seat in the back and we made an emergency landing in Gander Newfoundland

we had to debark and the kind folks there called some of the concession staff in and they opened up the terminal for us, can you beat that for hospitality?!

after a few hours - back on the road... only to stop in Rota Spain and break down there for three days

been half-way around the world a couple of times in a C5 but never flew in a c17

fascinating plane, even if the passenger seats face backwards and no windows LoL..

Re: Random Photos ‘You took’

Back in the '70s we had a C5 come into Davis-Monthan. I was in SAC security at the time and they pulled us up to secure that sucker while it was on the ground. It was an empty plane but, we had to hump it due to its sheer cost...and we had the clearance higher than LE or flight line security. It took a long time to walk from nose to wingtip, to tail, to wingtip, to nose.

When I saw that beast in the air I thought it would be hitting the active in minutes. Wrong! It was still way out. Hell it was a blimp with wings...LOL!

yes sir,i'm not surprised they opened up in Gander for you.wonderful people.on 911 when US airspace was closed,i forget the exact number but something like 265 planes coming accross the pond,diverted to Gander,50 or 60 made it Halifax and so on and so on.Gander has something like 7000 or so folks live there and there was something like 5000 or 6000 people stuck on airplanes.the folks there went out to the airport and brought people home,put them up in makeshift dorms at schools,let them use phone,took them shopping for supplies,whatever they needed.wonderful people looking after people at a horrible time.there's a broadway play called 'Comes From Away" cause that's what Newfoundlanders call about people not from there,they're come from away.it's a tremendous story,my wife,who is a Newfoundlander,took her mother to Toronto a couple years ago,to see the play.very emotional.

Re: Random Photos ‘You took’

I like all the pics and stories, but in particularly enjoying the plane pictures and info. If I'm not mistaken, there're six or seven of those at Boeing field right now.

Re: Random Photos ‘You took’

I'll play- So, in Apr. 91 we're leaving Bahrain after Desert Storm. We get dropped off in an open kinda domed cover thing at the end of the runway and we're all laying on our seabags, waiting. Off down the way there's a C-5 with the nose open, loading up. Huh, that's kinda neat. Pretty soon, they close up the nose, some official dudes do the walk around, and they start getting in the side door. Then it starts to move. Huh, cool, we'll get to see that big mother take off. Then it taxis to the far end of the runway and points DIRECTLY AT US. Big blast of smoke out the back, here it comes. Bigger, bigger, BIGGER, and still on the tires. Then the nose comes up, still coming! About the time you're fixin' to run, it finally gets off the ground and starts clawing for altitude. I kid you not, it didn't clear the hut thing by 50 feet. BOOM! Dirt falling outta the rafters, we about crapped. Too awesome. Man, them things are big.

Re: Random Photos ‘You took’

Again, great stories and pictures. Experiences we stateside, non-service folks can't hardly imagine. For some reason it's exceedingly cool to me that those planes are drive-through. Talk about keeping the show on the road, nobody even has to back up...

Re: Random Photos ‘You took’

My rental home is about 10 miles from Stewart air national guard base . The transports fly into there regularly. Just before Desert storm I knew something was going on I was still living there at the time . Instead of two or three flying over a day it was three or four an hour . Things look they are going to drop out of the sky as they make the approach but it's just because their so low and big

Re: Random Photos ‘You took’

Ya we got some rain and wind we had no power for 24 hrs . This is the road to New Paltz my route to my rental got some water in the basement but nothing damaged as it was in the laundry furnace area so it’s unfinished. I had to go 30 + miles to get around the flooded area. The bridge to New Paltz over the Wallkill river was under 2+ feet of water. The river is about 1/4 of a mile away from where I was
