Hey guys, I joined the GoPro bandwagon like everybody else, so here's my first attempt at a few videos.  No fancy music..just the raw audio and the a/c packs blasting in the background.  Sorry I didn't embed the first 2, but I don't want them scattering all over the interwebz.  Also included some pictures from a recent trip.

Takeoff from Utah...PF


VFR Overhead Pattern & landing back home...PF


C-17 doing some practice contacts

One of our receiver F-22s taking off.  We took them out to Vegas for an exercise.  (Didn't have the camera ready, so this was with my phone)

Those F-22's don't play lol. Now they're taking up space on my flightline! Did the bird do that landing into Vegas? I'll have to post the video up when I get home haha.

Not quite as good to look at as Big Sexy on your flightline!  And no the bird's landing would have been better than that one into vegas :hrmm:.

You missed some good flights!  My 80yr old space-A pax seemed to enjoy themselves.

Oh yah, BTW, how did you like Nellis and the Vegas weather?

Not sure if you guys were here when we had our nice 70 streak while the rest of the country froze B)

Yea that's what it looks like when the engineer gives you a CG forward of 15.....He used almost full deflection for the flare and the trim was like 10* nose up when we exited the runway.

Nah, it wasn't that warm B)  Was in the 50s-60s I believe.  I LOVE vegas...so jealous you get to live out there.  We managed to break for an extra day, but it wasn't enough haha.  Don't get Red Flag support missions very often out here on the east coast, but I'm gonna jump on the first one I can, so I can stay out there for more than a night.

They'll be around for a lonnnnnnng time.  Even the new tanker won't have the capability the -10s have.  We're also about to get a cockpit upgrade, thank God!
