@Stradee,
I've been sending the last reply I received from this thread, because the reminders don't come daily as before! All clicked and food for thought:

@ehBeth,
Stradee, can't get the pic up online - but, look at the second page of the URL you sent and you will see two pics of the OV-1 Mohawk at the bottom of the page. Also, flew the Cessna O-1 Bird Dog. Also, on page three, I flew the F-80 Shooting star. On page four, I flew the Beech T-34 Mentor. On the same page below I flew the Lockheed T-33. Click on Helicopters and see the Bell OH-58 - same as the Bell Jet Ranger - I flew that one. And, I flew the Bell UH-1 Huey just below on the same page - did some door gunning from it - I know, stupid, but, life isn't the same in a war zone as it is in a peaceful place - you get crazy and don't know it. Also, on the second page of the helicopter stuff - I flew the Hughes model 500 - painted olive drab and with mini-guns - we flew about ten feet above the ground, blew back the bushes with our rotor wash just to see what was beneath it. When we saw eyeballs and guns we pressed the red trigger and got out of the area - there were two Cobra gunships behind us that took care of the situation.

I flew many other planes that weren't on your site. For instance, the Taylor Craft was the first plane I soloed in. You can Google it. The plane was about my age at the time.

I have recollections about one particular mission I flew in the OV-1 Mohawk. It was a low level photo mission up a valley to get possible pics of enemy positions - as I finished the shots - there was a ridgeline in front of me that I had to go over - as I went over the ridge all I could see was the eyeballs of two helicopter pilots - I passed between them at about three hundred miles per hour - then about a hundredth of a second later I remembered that those two helicopters were always followed by a third gunship helicopter - about that time, I looked that pilot in the eyes. Damn lucky.

There were many other times I was Damn Lucky.

Anyway, Stradee, those are some of the planes I flew.

Reminds me of a story I read many years ago. A WWI pilot was being interviewed by a reporter. The reporter asked the WWI pilot did he have nightmares after all the action he was involved in during the war. The WWI pilot said yes, he did have nightmares. The reporter asked when did he have the last one - the WWI pilot, about 90 yrs old said - "Last night."

All clicked - another tree asmiling.

@Stradee,
Hi Stradee - I'm recovering nicely. I think the 5th spin on the Tilt A Whirl mighta been a bit much for the old neck.

But I'll go again tomorrow night Very Happy

@Stradee,
Stradee,
our vacation was terrific. On our first day in Colorado we hiked to Devil's Head Lookout.
Impressive 9,748 feet. Unusual for us that the treeline is that high. Impressive that a woman was on duty there between 1919 and 1921.

Nice view from the top

Hi Teeny n' Wildclickers

Began the day normally - fed babies, watered, then the washing machine said "clank", and that was that.

Except for having to call repair people, the days a fine one.

Keep smilin' WildClickers Smile
