Rather than continue releasing various documents we've located about the C-123 contamination, we're "toning down" the blog a tad, hoping for some progress from AF and VA to allow our veterans to be individually considered for our Agent Orange exposure.

So, for a little humor, from Sergeant Andy: http://dnc-charlotte-rvrental.blogspot.com
A check ride ought to be like a skirt:
Somehow short enough to be interesting,
but somehow long enough to cover everything.

Speed is life. Altitude is life insurance.

It only takes two things to fly:
Airspeed, and money.

The three most dangerous things in aviation:
1. A Doctor or Dentist in a Cessna.
2. Two captains in a DC-9.

Aircraft Identification:
If it's ugly, it's British.
If it's weird, it's French.
If it's ugly and weird, it's Russian.

Without ammunition, the USAF would be just another,
very expensive flying club.

The similarity between air traffic controllers and pilots
If a pilot screws up, the pilot dies. 
If ATC screws up, the pilot dies.

The difference between pilots and jet engines: 
The engines usually quit whining when they get to the gate.

New FAA motto: 'We're not happy, till you're not happy.'

If Air Traffic Control screws up, it's called a "System Malfunction," 
If a pilot screws up it's called a "violation."

If something hasn't broken on your helicopter--it's about to.

I give Harris' landing a 9 ................. on the Richter scale. 

Basic Flying Rules:

1. Try to stay in the middle of the air with the pointy end that-a-way.
2. Do not go near the edges of it.
3. The edges of the air can be recognized by the appearance.
of ground, buildings, sea, trees and interstellar space. It is much more difficult to fly in the edges.
4. I forget the other one.

Unknown landing signal officer (LSO) to carrier pilot after his 
sixth unsuccessful landing attempt:
"You've got to land here son . . .. this is where the food is."
