Yes as this seemed more of a get me somewhere quick safe trip:undecided:
and seeing the machine gun support really got me wondering:thinking:
Don't know how much time you have left but do take care of your self
The machine gun makes it look scary, but they never use them, it is just normal ops, every one of these Chinooks have them and people manning them where ever they go over here. I don't worry for myself, I'm convinced if something should happen where I die, I will find myself in a awesome place and happier than I could be here. If not, I will never know, or perhaps, end up in hell, if you believe some of the religious stuff. It's an adventure both here and beyond, I am convinced.
My wife on the other hand would not deserve to suffer my death, or my children. If I really thought it wasn't safe, I wouldn't do it.
BowtieGuy: This stuff isn't a problem to post, but there are some places I am not allowed to take photo's. I was invited to come up to the window and take better photo's by one of the crewmen, but I didn't feel a need to do so, especially with that back end open, I'd rather keep my seat belt on. We had a general walking around with a news camera the other day showing all kinds of stuff in the background I am not allowed to show, so I don't point at that stuff, but he didn't seem to care.
