    Life is all about ass, you're either covering it, hauling it, laughing it off, kicking it, kissing it, busting it, trying to get a piece of it, or behaving like one.


    I may not be able to bottom out but, I sure as hell can tear up the sides

    C-17 is a great aircraft. Does not need much of a landing strip. Proud to work on them daily.

    As I was proud to work on the first C-17, T1 the flight test bird, first to fly. I was MD Flight Test and worked instrumenting T1 for a year, then was on the launch crew for First Flight. The bird flew to EAFB where the night crew received her that evening, next morning we reported for two years of testing. We spent the first few months being followed by guys with cameras as we maintained the aircraft who them wrote the maintenance manuals. We were literally making up the now official procedures as we went along: we wrote the book!! Great days!
