    Got to fly on the AC-130s grandpa, the AC-47 andbit’s daddy, the AC-119, never got to fly on the Spooky III. My father flew on AC-47s in WWII and I got to fly on them in Vietnam…plane was built to last.
    About 10 years ago I was at the AF museum at Eglin and saw a crew working on a C-47 bring readied for display. I went over, told them I’d put some time in on them and asked if I could come inside. They let me in and it was suddenly 40 years earlier, you go right back. I got to tell them a few things they either didn’t know or weren’t sure of and they let me wander around. I knew that it was time to go, I was within a few months of retiring, as everything I’d worked with was now on a pole at some museum. Figured that at some point I’d have curators, armed with tubes of KY, following me around the museums so it was best I just take the gold mess pan and didi.

    The first C-130 flew in 1954, that makes the series over 60 years old, just two years younget than the B-52. I have a lot of personal connections with that plane and it looks as if the series will still be flying long after I’m gone. That’s American engineering.

    Daniel Greenfield:

    Chief Constable Hopkins declared that people have a right to be β€œsafe from hatred”. After the Manchester Arena attack by a second-generation Muslim refugee, he warned, “We understand that feelings are very raw right now and people are bound to be looking for answers … it is vital that our diverse communities in Greater Manchester stand together and do not tolerate hate.”

    Feelings will occasionally grow raw when picking the nails of the latest Muslim terrorist attack out of your child’s face or knowing that she has been raped by a dozen Pakistani men. It may even be possible that in their final dying moments, the victims of the Manchester Arena attack were afraid of Islam.

    If only they could be prosecuted after death.

      Pope Francis’ dislike for President Trump was evident on his face and in his body language. Apparently he gave POTUS a book on “Climate Change” πŸ™„.

      Pope Francis is either evil or delusional, any which way he is a dangerous, misguided Shepard who is willing to sacrifice his flock at the filthy blood stained feet of Islam.

      I have a very bad feeling that Pope Francis is going to be set upon and lose his life to a Muslim. I can’t put my finger on all the signs but I think it is going to happen. Not asking anyone to concur with my feeling and reading of Francis and the forces of Islam but I will be very surprised if his friends the Muslims let him live to see out his papacy.

      Pope Francis thinks he is working on ecumenism the Muslims know they re hunting a very big trophy. Only one of their goals is achievable.

      Also I think Pope Francis sees the situation in the Philippines as an opportunity for the Church to show how to love those who persecute it. I don’t believe Francis will ever wake up to the reality of the evil that is Islam. It makes him uncomfortable to call evil evil.

        Well, for obe thong, not take his word or direction on anything pertaining to Islam unless it involves active self defense. I think he’s slipped a few cogs, he’s on that fringe that believes Christianity involves kbeeling in front of your enemies until they get tired of slaughtering you and invite you out for a beer.
        Not that I had a great deal of respect for him from the get-go, but his deafening silence on ISIS slaughtering untold Christians whose communities in the Levant that survived for ocer a thousand years blew what little there was. His futile attempt to organize Christianity under his red banner has about as much of a chance as Hillary becoming a nun. It’s about time for him to start looking at retirment homes before his damage becomes irreparable.

    Memory Lane…

    This 1967 true story is of an experience by a young 12 year old lad in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. It is about the vivid memory of a privately rebuilt P-51 from WWII and its famous owner/pilot.

    In the morning sun, I could not believe my eyes. There, in our little airport, sat a majestic P-51. They said it had flown in during the night from some U.S. Airport, on its way to an air show. The pilot had been tired, so he just happened to choose Kingston for his stop-over. It was to take to the air very soon.

    I marveled at the size of the plane, dwarfing the Pipers and Canucks tied down by her. It was much larger than in the movies. She glistened in the sun like a bulwark of security from days gone by.

    The pilot arrived by cab, paid the driver, and then stepped into the pilot’s lounge. He was an older man; his wavy hair was gray and tossed. It looked like it might have been combed, say, around the turn of the century. His flight jacket was checked, creased and worn – it smelled old and genuine. Old Glory was prominently sewn to its shoulders. He projected a quiet air of proficiency and pride devoid of arrogance. He filed a quick flight plan to Montreal (“Expo-67 Air Show”) then walked across the tarmac.

    After taking several minutes to perform his walk-around check, the tall, lanky man returned to the flight lounge to ask if anyone would be available to stand by with fire extinguishers while he “flashed the old bird up, just to be safe.” Though only 12 at the time I was allowed to stand by with an extinguisher after brief instruction on its use — “If you see a fire, point then pull this lever he said . ( I later became a firefighter, but that’s another story ) The air around the exhaust manifolds shimmered like a mirror from fuel fumes as the huge prop started to rotate. One manifold, then another, and yet another barked — I stepped back with the others. In moments the Packard -built Merlin engine came to life with a thunderous roar. Blue flames knifed from her manifolds with an arrogant snarl. I looked at the others’ faces; there was no concern. I lowered the bell of my extinguisher. One of the guys signaled to walk back to the lounge. We did.

    Several minutes later we could hear the pilot doing his pre-flight run-up. He’d taxied to the end of runway 19, out of sight. All went quiet for several seconds. We ran to the second story deck to see if we could catch a glimpse of the P-51 as she started down the runway. We could not. There we stood, eyes fixed to a spot half way down 19. Then a roar ripped across the field, much louder than before. Like a furious hell spawn set loose — something mighty this way was coming. “Listen to that thing!” said the controller.

    In seconds the Mustang burst into our line of sight. Its tail was already off the runway and it was moving faster than anything I’d ever seen by that point on 19. Two-thirds the way down 19 the Mustang was airborne with her gear going up the prop tips were supersonic. We clasped our ears as the Mustang climbed hellishly fast into the circuit to be eaten up by the dog-day haze. We stood for a few moments, in stunned silence, trying to digest what we’d just seen.

    The radio controller rushed by me to the radio. “Kingston tower calling Mustang?” He looked back to us as he waited for an acknowledgment. The radio crackled, “Go ahead, Kingston.” “Roger, Mustang. Kingston tower would like to advise the circuit is clear for a low level pass” I stood in shock because the controller had just, more or less, asked the pilot to return for an impromptu air show! The controller looked at us. “Well, What?” He asked. “I can’t let that guy go without asking. I couldn’t forgive myself!”

    The radio crackled once again, “Kingston, do I have permission for a low level pass, east to west, across the field?”

    “Roger, Mustang, the circuit is clear for an east to west pass.”

    “Roger, Kingston, I’m coming out of 3,000 feet, stand by.”

    We rushed back onto the second-story deck, eyes fixed toward the eastern haze. The sound was subtle at first, a high-pitched whine, a muffled screech, a distant scream. Moments later the P-51 burst through the haze.

    Her airframe straining against positive G’s and gravity. Her wing tips spilling contrails of condensed air, prop-tips again supersonic. The burnished bird blasted across the eastern margin of the field, shredding and tearing the air.

    At about 500 mph and 150 yards from where we stood she passed with the old American pilot saluting. Imagine. A salute! I felt like laughing; I felt like crying; she glistened; she screamed; the building shook; my heart pounded. Then the old pilot pulled her up and rolled, and rolled, and rolled out of sight into the broken clouds and indelible into my memory.

    I’ve never wanted to be an American more than on that day! It was a time when many nations in the world looked to America as their big brother. A steady and even-handed beacon of security who navigated difficult political water with grace and style; not unlike the old American pilot who’d just flown into my memory. He was proud, not arrogant, humble, not a braggart, old and honest, projecting an aura of America at its best.

    That America will return one day! I know it will! Until that time, I’ll just send off this story. Call it a loving reciprocal salute to a Country, and especially to that old American pilot: the late-JIMMY STEWART (1908-1997), Actor, real WWII Hero (Commander of a US Army Air Force Bomber Wing stationed in England), and a USAF Reserves Brigadier General, who wove a wonderfully fantastic memory for a young Canadian boy that’s lasted a lifetime.

      They do it on purpose, I think. They provide hours of labor for the city trash-collection folks, who are of course unionized, by leaving so much trash behind, at each and every one of their rallies. They care about the Earth, for sure, but they care more about their Comrades in the Party.

      I’m guessing here, and I would bet my next paycheck I’m right, that whenever there was a TEA Party rally whose venue was left pristine and looked better than it did before the attendees arrived, the local unionized trash-pickers were angry, because they were not called up to work.

      It amazes me, people who throw their trash on the ground.

      McDonald’sβ„’ deserves special mention. I’m pretty sure they don’t have 99% market share in my town. We have Taco Bellβ„’, Burger Kingβ„’, Wendy’sβ„’, Arby’sβ„’, and more. And yet… 99% of the trash I see when walking in this town is from McDonald’s. I think, like the OWS and Save The Earth people, they believe they have permission.
      Indulgences.

      I’ve seen them open their car door and gently place all the trash in a bag, from a meal for six people, next to the car, and drive away. Probably thinking they were being polite by not just throwing it. They know they’re good people! They support the right causes that all their TV idols support.

    lilbirdee12’s prayer:

    Our Heavenly Father, Your children come to you tonight to ask for healing and peace throughout our country so that we may return to being One Nation Under God. Guide us to be leaders in Your Kingdom, spreading Your Love and Salvation to all. Forgive us our sins and deliver us from evil.

    Lord, we ask for a blanket of protection over all our troops and law enforcement who serve to defend and protect us. Bless our representatives with the strength and wisdom they need to achieve the path You have chosen for us.

    Please place Your Guardian Angels of Protection around Donald Trump and Mike Pence and their families as they seek to lead America back to You.

    Grant us patience, Lord, as the evil ones try to anger us and cause us to fall.
    Spread blessings over Israel and Netanyahu.

    We humbly ask that You please comfort those who are grieving and in pain.
    Thank you Father, for Your Love and the gift of Life.

    Left work early on Monday. They had it in hand, anyway. I was feeling heat behind my eyes, like I was getting a fever, and they were dry and it was painful to blink, like I had sand in them. Came home, and looked in the mirror, and both my eyes are weeping snot. Literally. The left, more than the right, and the left eye was, at rest, about three-quarters closed, with great swollen bags under each eye. I almost went to Urgent Care yesterday morning, but I talked to a few people familiar with opthamological ailments, and they all said, it’s not pinkeye. No itching. So I said I’d wait a day before going to the Hospital people.

    Woke up more than 4 times in the last 2 days with my left eye stuck shut, and a couple times the other one, too. Had to walk blind to the bathroom and heat up a washcloth and soak the glue.

    Better, now, but wow. I think it’s allegies.

    I’m just glad it happened and subsided on my two days off. This weekend is our kickoff.

    Looks like I won’t be headed to Erin Hills for the US Open, my dad isn’t physically up for the haul 😦 .
