Very cool webpage Doug! I still have some old video of 81-781's TDY to Holloman.......flying with some REAL jets.

Seriously, wasn't the best assignment, where we had the middle-of-the-night snow removal and water heats on Tanker Alert? Also, cold weather cart starts and cleaning breeches in sub-zero temps was THE BEST !!
