Here's a nice Chinook picture for you, Mike.







Also, put away that Eurocopter and get ahold of an MH-53.  You'll thank me.

Rio de Janeiro 1967.  Say's so in the YouTube notes blurb for the video.

Here's a nice Chinook picture for you, Mike.

I've seen that picture before.  I think that wais in Afghanistan.   Both our chief pilot and assistant chief pilot are previous military rotary wing guys.   I believe the assistant chief pilot has the story to go along with that picture.

Don't remember the details but want to say it's a medical evac away from any front line fighting that came about due to a slip and fall type injury.

Am I right, mom?  ;)

no fire today. It finally rained for a change . . .

but you writing "got fire?" reminded me of a poster I saw in the liquor store the other day.
It had a puppy with a milk-mustache on it, laying on the ground and looking really sad and underneath it said:
"Had milk, want beer..."

HA HA  ::rofl::

Wow, RAIN?!?  Now you must have a spotty bubble to look out of.   :D

I haven't heard much for fire rumors..  seems a little quiet, for this time of year. 

That's funny about the puppy poster!   :D   I can just see him. 

Do you know where you're headed, after Arkansas? 

Cheers!   :P
