    Are you saying I'm weak-minded? I mean you might be right... :whistle: But, is THAT what you're saying?!

    Oh, MAN; I'm carrying SO many death sentences here already from asking too many questions. I think I'll just walk slowly away now from this one. I was never here. I see nothing....:whistle:

    That's great to hear. And what a beauty in the boneyard behind her. You don't see those anymore.

    It really warms my heart to know that C-130's are still coming off the assembly line. In a world where new-and-improved is the standard, it's impressive to realize that other than a nip-and-tuck here and there (and that I'm guessing, mostly in on-board electronics), that the airframe of the...

    I'm guessing the trucker who pulls into the Truck Stop with a load like that on his or her trailer has automatic bragging rights. I sure would love to see one of those on the road. :jumpin:
