Are you in your advanced copter yet? I have seen the Apaches working in this RT several times. It is kind of cool to be riding down the county road over there and all of the sudden an Apache flies out over the trees.

OK, I'm a little confused,,,,, Did he work for a contractor while he was in service?

He was FT Army until about 1985 when Graham Rudman decided they needed to lay off X number of active duty servicemen. When this occured he went to work for the contractor and finished the rest of his time in Army Guard flying UH-60's. So between active duty and reserves he has total of 36 yrs service. Retired as a CW4. He has flown UH-1's, Cobra's, Blackhawks, 58's, and 67's currently.

There was a fun little sand climb getting in and out of the river bed. Just gun and go keep the speed up, the KTM made child's play of it.

OK, help!

I've got the tag and can't seem to upload any photos on this site. I've resized them (several times) to be within the parameters required to load. But still no pics. What gives? Special instructions??
