We looked at that, but wouldn't get us back until the next day. Car was cheaper too.

Hammer down big time in the rental car rig. Only got one speeding ticket.



Notre Dame de Paris.



Full tourist mode. The line was ridiculous long in length, so let’s press on to find beer and food.



Something or other that prolly is important. Look! Over there is beer!



1664 was what I drank for three months in Thumrate Oman a few years ago, so good to see it again. This place made a mean well done steak.



“Donny, do you know French?”
“No.”
“Well let’s ride the train ‘till we see the tall pointy thing.”



For those that know me, it’s a rare event that I’m speechless. Stepping out of the station, and seeing the Tower in person was one of those times. Roll film!

Your guess is as good as mine. I couldn't read the French sign.

Fancy place didn’t like the Hooters hat. Also, forgot my glasses.



No Coors Lite? Well, I guess I’ll drive home. Ya’ll drink this stuff.

You gotta be kidding me...you turned your nose up at an alco beverage because it didn't have a head but a 'nose?' Wow. A two-fisteed drinker like me wouldn't pass it up if that's all there was. Hell, it was good for our boys in 1944/45 (and the Nazis from 1940 to '45....), so drink up, Chair Force, it's good for you.

Back to work the next day, but we keep the Alcoholics Moving Cargo tradition alive.





Every day is a great day to fly.

Went home for a minute long enough to do laundry, then step to another jet for a trip into Africa.



Heading west on day two going to an airfield. African sunsets are pretty, but that is about it in that continent.









Flight deck was full of pilots this trip with an upgrade check ride from an evaluator, so no seat behind the copilot for me. Back in second class seating kicking feet up.



Water, land, sun and shadow had an odd mix of a show.



Fun fluffy passenger pickup.



Here we have an example of the best and brightest the Air Force has trained, and on the right; is a pilot. Heh heh heh.



Favorite spot in Spain to stop to sleep.

What? We must stay a second day because of scheduling at the next airfield? Darn.













I really don’t remember this at all. Oh well, great trip all around.

Thank you for sharing the awesome pictures. A few of my buddies have brought home similar shots for me to see (as well as some NSF civilians stuff). It's nice to see you are well taken care of. Kandahar sucks but you make it look like it's beautiful. God bless you and your crew. Thank you for your service.

“Can you leave for another flight? It’s with a reserve crew, and their crew chief had other commitments.” Turns out the copilot did as well, so call up a favorite copilot from the Japan trip to ride along reservist style.



Back to the desert. Again.



Something big hit there.



Non OCD desert farming.



Random abandoned airport with not a thing around.



Aww dick.

“Chief!”

“Relax, all right? My old man is a television repairman, he's got this ultimate set of tools. I can fix it.”

Actually, it’s not that big of a deal out in the system. I have a pin kit that isn’t that hard to disable the thrust reverser and its opposite paired motor on the other wing. Then the engine that has the problem I put 14 bolts in all three thrust reverser cowlings to physically keep the doors from moving. Only penalty is a longer stopping distance having to rely on only two engines and more brakes to stop after landing.



Beachfront Gulf property.



Fancy with money in the bank.





Picture in picture!

Nice pictures from above, as usually!!! Very nice!
I like desert - don't know, why...
Abandoned airport? - Why? So large city and that airport - it was old, previous?

I think, that bird can land without any reversers at most runways with only wheelbrakes. Interesting, how much length without? Is it will stop in 3 kilometers? I think, yes:-))) Even with nominal load... IDK, but seems every international airports have not less than 1 long runway, not shorter than 3 kilometers....
One longest runway, as I know - is 7400 kilometers. It's test runway of aviation institute. It can receive any type of aircraft without any brakes... (as they told:-))))

1987, FSB, 5.0, EB, c-6, Black Hoss, some oldy, some rusty, milestone is over 1 000 000 miles.
1993, FSB, 5.0, XLT, E4OD, White Mare.

Aperture Priority, f/4.0, 28mm, ISO 100, 2sec







Stunning sunrise





Full service window licker.



Windows cleaned, gas in the tank, let’s go fly!



So even though I still have a flip phone, I’m moving into this era with an Ipad Pro. Laptop had died, and I replaced it with an Imac at home, but still would like to have something out on the road with me, so let’s see if I can learn a touch screen. How do you make this thing work?



Decent picture taker too.



Headin’ home, and I wonder what the next trip will be?

Had a day off today to knock out the next few trips worth of photos from last summer, but also worked on some new material as well. Switching gears for a minute for a current observation.

The Bagram Bowl. Few other places in the world test men, or machine, on both sides of the trigger, with one of the most challenging approaches and departures for heavyweight airlift. Millions of years of terrain with thousands of years of fighting stack into that one possible shot being a golden BB. Everyone staring closely at the view looking for a smoke trail of a rocket with the motors at max fighting for every foot to get as far above as fast as we can. Sharp eyes looking out mix awe inspiring views with threats to livelihood, but our greatest risk is also own doing. The greatest safety of a crew driven airplane is when the sum of the parts equals greater than the whole. “Hey man, will you double check that …” “Where are we on completing this …” “Can you remind me for …” “How can I help you do …” “What do you think about …” And the possible scenarios list on to get one more load in and out and over the mountain. Ya know, this place wouldn’t be bad for a ski resort, but gotta stop 4000 years of fighting first. ‘Till next flight, - Adrianspeeder
