A Flying Stamp
« on: August 28, 2007, 06:58:47 PM »
Many of you know that our long time member Stamp is usually away on fire duty out west or somewhere far awayfrom home here in Michigan. This year her duties as fire information officer have brought her closer to home as Michigan has its own fire woes. The Sleeper Lake fire, the third largest in Michigan history, which is still burning in our Upper Peninsula.   Ada sent me this e-mail ( she sent it a week or so ago however I am late sharing with you as I was up looking at the smoke.  :)  Ada, Thanks so much for all you do. :)

From Ada:

"This is how I spent one morning -- on a recon flight in a Blackhawk.  They let me hang out the window and everything..."

All helicopters are crash hawks if something goes wrong...they all fly like rocks when the motor dies.

As for the Blackhawk, I've flown in them (as a passenger) for more than 800 hours with no incidents.

I have never had a incident in them either that was just what we called them up at ft bragg. I only ever saw one of them crash and if understood it right it was due to pilot error and had nothing to do with the bird.

  I like to throw a rope out the door and bail out for a nice glide to the ground.  I prefer Hueys for this task but will bail out of most any thing.  I like going AUSY style so I can see what is a comming.  At least no one is shooting at her.  My Sister fights them fires and has been trying for years for me to join in the fun.  Nope! I would prefer to sit here on the ground and make sawdust.

Where did you go to Air Assault school Arky? I attended at Ft. Campbell in 86. Nothing like a night combat rappel to get your blood pumping.

Any time I jumped out of them I had one of those big pair of bloomers over me as the rope wouldn't reach the ground form 1500'. ;D

  Ft. Hood started a school but politics got involved and the Army pulled the pins.  So off to Ft. Campbell.  Rappeling school in ChedJu Korea, Black Rock AK for Mountain and Glacer training.  If you can do it on a Rope I am your Dope.  Did a 300ft single rope where you were 1600 ft about the ocean with a veiw to kill for.  You can give me some line and a snap link and I am gone.
  Never fond of the bed sheets but would Stand up, Hook up and Shuffel to the door any time.

I headed the bed sheet route....harness snapped in Tower week and busted both ankles. Had to settle for AA school and duty at Campbell after that. Wouldn't change it if I could.

I used to run a tower for the Boy Scout COPE course, the instructors motto was "COPE is my dope, come get high with me". I miss working that course.

Well DanG, I consider the busted ankles a wake up call, see I was young and dumb during those days, I had airborne ranger in my contract and was headed to 3rd Battalion, 75th Ranger s after airborne school. I'm glad I got to serve with the 101st.

I will second DanG's thoughts, I don't like heights. Bruce, the idea of someone shooting while I'm trapped in a can doesn't do anything for me either. ;D
