Apparently the government is still good at keeping some secrets...How about the "Stealth" UH-60 in the Bin Laden raid? That tailrotor is something awesome!

That was quick! Must have gotten hold of the remains and scaled it down...

The club frequency board is missing the 2.4 #3 pin, please check and see if you might have packed it up by mistake.

Thanks.

He's talking about me a few times. :) I did have my record flight without crashing last week. :D Second flight my slow stick hit flight box 1.

"Take the landing!"

Maybe I'm behind the times. I had no idea they used DC-10's for this purpose.

Yes, about the last 3 seasons, we just didn't need them in AZ until now. Evergreen has a 747 in Marana that is supposed to drop as well.


I went to high school with the woman that wrote the story above on azfamily.com.

Small world:)

I wonder if they need me to bring my AT-802 Air Tractor in for a few drops.... I need to put the LG back on it but she could be ready for the weekend!

A guy at my office also mentioned they are using P-3's.


I always thought they used C-130's.

Come to think of it. Sounds like another commercial use for UAV.
