I started out at Eglin in test side. Stayed there till they kicked me out and sent me to Kunsan. Did my year in the 80th and played the EQUAL listing and lost. It came up Cannon or Holloman. I picked the less of two evils and worked the F-117's. Well the F-117's retired and the AF figgured that 117's and F-22's were the same so they sent us all to Langley. Currently I'm working Phase (or what they subsituted for phase) on the 22. Its different, Ive never needed a computer to put external power on a jet before.

My first unit, My first jet, you always remember your first!
My first and favorite jet. I crewed her through the full first portion of the conformal fuel tank tests. From when she had just the dummy shapes on, through the Peace Zena III tests with the full comformals, 600 gal wing tanks and lazer guided bombs. Talk about some hot brakes, she blew thermal plugs regularly, they liked to fly her with externals full with lockout keys installed and safty wired in. For eglin guys this is SOP but with 3k extra fuel with conformals it was a problem. Now she has a switch in the cockpit to lock out externals.
