Default I can't be the only one here...

67U Y-100, crewman on a CH-47 C and D models.

I know they changed the MOS designation, but that is what it was while I was in.

You just may be right on the current designation of the MOS.

And BTW, glad you followed Keg's link that he has posted in several places over there.

Well, do you have any air shows or fly-in at your airport. I go to our local shows ever year. Last year they had 5 Chinese yaks and ww2 planes.

Our airshows are every two years now. We tried one every year, but it only gave us about 1 month of rest before having to start planning the next airshow. After 3 years, we decided to go every other year. Our next show will be in October of 2018. On the off years we try to time the EAA circuit to have an EAA fly-in.

Yes, I have seen the Lakota. We have a military fuel contract and all sorts of military birds coming in from time to time. Got a flt of six Chinooks coming Monday.

As for the Lakota, IMO, the Army should have stayed with something built here, not elsewhere. Whoever made that decision is about par to whoever decided to mothball the OH-58 and use two AH-64 as hunter killer teams.

Let me add the decision of giving the AF total control of the C-27 and ultimately mothballing new ones as they came off the assembly line to Davis Monthan. The AF wants to control all things fixed wing, yet wastes so much frigging money in doing so.

Yet another bone headed decision by the Pentagon.

And don't even get me started on the A-10! I think the ignorant bastards should be purposely dropped behind the lines with the option to call whatever CAS they want. Let them see first hand which is better suited.

A few years back the AF wanted the Army to take the A-10 but they seen all the money that went with them. Like you say the Army has got rid of the OH 58delta,s, My unit lost 2, 58D and 4 pilot,s One was a female .I agree the AH64 is a bad ass and the best, but the OH 58 D did so so in Iraq and A-stand . They help take out the Hussian bro.
