Just came home from school (Ohio University) and since we (ROTC) are going on an FTX this weekend, the Ohio National Guard flew down a Blackhawk to let us get in it and learn the proper saftery measures. All I can say is.....I cant wait for Friday, then I get to FLY in a Blackhawk.

On Sat I get to help take up a group of UW Oshkosh ROTC up for a spin. I am a crewchief, so when we do the rollercoaster thing jst over the trees I get to see the big smiles and here the yelling in the cabin, its really fun! I like to get the hotties to sit in the front row across from me, so I get a nice whiff of perfume once in a while!

It gets even better when you start parachuting out of them.

A jump from a Crash Hawk is a lot of fun. Parachuted from them a lot while stationed at Ft. Bragg.
Chopper jumps are a riot.

I'm looking forward to my first flight in a blackhawk soon. My wife's cousin is a crew chief on a blackhawk, in Vegas I think. He said the next time they were coming up to Hill AFB, he would call me and give me a ride.

Ok, just got back in from my FTX and had a BLAST! Wow, what a great time and learned alot. About the ride down, Chalk one got the Blackhawk and the rest got Hueys, but hey I cant complain, it was still a hell of a ride down. Learned alot about land nav, moving as a squad in the field, and alot of Drill and Ceremony. Also got to try out a simulator called the EST (I think thats what it is called) and it was also a blast. All in all a very good weekend.
