Shut 2 squadrons down in Fl. Time to start one up at Luke. Nothing like having to drive down to Gila Bend because the EPA would let the jets into Luke. In that time span I was the owner of acft 83-161, 85-1512, 84-1382, and 84-1296 yep I was a sq flagship puke. Just dont mess with my assistant Big Louie!!!
