Last flight in Afghanistan complete!


Hey folks, just got back in from my LAST flight here in Kandahar! Logged 1.0hrs on a training flight. For a grand finale, I asked tower for a low pass over the active runway. He cleared me for the option behind two departing F-18s doing afterburner takeoffs. I buzzed the runway at 50' and 150 knots, full length with a 55 degree left turn out back to "Mustang Ramp". I officially now have 1000.0 total hours of flight time and 387 hours in Kandahar.

It also means that in just a couple days my butt will be on a big plane on my way back to the USA. It will take about 4 days or so after leaving Kandahar, but, every minute is a minute closer.

See ya!

Laine.

Thanks guys. Spent the day turning in ammo and packing stuff up. Tomorrow, I tear down my plywood palace that I have called home for a year. My little 6' x 6' "room" inside a room will be gone forever.

My dog is PERFECT in my eyes
Now they just need to get the rest out of there and Iraq. My nephew is on his second tour in Iraq. Total, only a couple close calls by IED's and RPG's for him. He's Army infantry and cruises on H-60's in support and recon. I guess it's better than "boots in the sand" patrols..... Congrats...get your tail out of there.

I'm a retired 11B NCO. Tell your nephew I'm so proud of him and the rest of our young volunteers I could bust wide open, and I say that with the utmost sincerity. These soldiers have had a tough, tough row to hoe the past decade.
