    I always hated when the Ducks would show up on my fire that I was happily bucketing on. We'd usually get parked and those bastards would barge in and put the fire out......

    Party poopers :lol3

    This is an attitude you usually do not want to see a flight simulator in...

    I'd rather have those guys in the simulator doing that to being in the back of a 737 etc., with the pilots trying to recover from that.

    I got to tryout the CJ1 full motion simulator at SIMCOM in Orlando. It is truly a neat device.......

    The guys on the ground call them the overtime killers. When they fly lots the engineers do rather well:wink:

    Here's the real "overtime killer"! Iv'e seen it operate in person and it is impressive to say the least. !!,600 gallons per drop.

    Nobody was in it, the maintenance folks were running it remotely. They just installed a new visual system and alot of stuff got added to the outside, so they were checking the motion range to make sure it wouldn't hit anything at full travel...it clears the access bridge by about a foot now. :dood

    I've been in the back of a C-130 with the assholes up front putting us through some manouvres like that...half the guys in the back blew chunks. The smell was the 10th level of hell disgusting...:puke2

    The loadies wouldn't do that...they were enjoying our misery too much.

    Loadies can be like that.

    However, they did open the big door on the few occasions I was aboard a C130 in the tropics. They also allowed me to sleep on the cargo (a netted pallet of packs and webbing belonging to the grunts on said flight). Some years later I learnt that they allowed this as the results are really funny if we go through turbulence. If a loadie is nice to you, theres a reason for it.
