|I snapped this shot from the Longbow's front seat while
we were starting our approach trying to figure out where to land. The goal was to
get the Longbow on the ground near that green and white tent (upper left side) without
"blowing stuff" everywhere." Sadly it didn't work -- the big Boeing
helicopter made a mess, but the Boy Scouts recovered nicely.
Note: There are many legends as to why the hole was left in the roof! I'd like to hear from you.
|The event was the annual Boy Scout Show, and we had a huge number of visitors. I snapped this shot to prove that we'd actually landed near the stadium. What you don't see is the ring of huge wires around the stadium. Scary!|
|Even if you're not a Cowboy fan, you can't help but be
intimidated by this scene. We walked in an were greeted by this surrealistic view...
It reminded me of a better time when giants like Staubach roamed these environs...

Me in the end zone, thinking how I should have concentrated on sports instead of guitar....NOT!
We always wore our cav hats during static displays. They were always good ice breakers. Dig the cool then-new Nomex Aviation BDU flight suit.
By the way -- never miss the opportunity to take a classic "I was there" photo.
|CW3 Hampton, a great, great American, flew with me to
Dallas. He is a big Cowboy fan (or was then...) and was literally speechless when we
took the field.
His famous words were, "Please make sure I get a copy of that disk!"
Note: Young guys...it was a Sony digital camera with a 3.5" floppy drive.
