Thanks. Better make sure the horse is ready. Horse = my bugout gear/transportation [:D] As a side note, The Citadel [i]finally[/i] removed my daughter's photo from the athletics roster page. Sheesh. I never did get back with you on this topic, but for the longest time I didn't think women should be allowed to attend. Still don't. But when my daughter wanted to apply, I supported here with my service documentation, etc. I guess it's a familial thing. Regards.

I have seen similarly equipped apaches maybe a dozen times over the years in SouthEast Houston area. Where are you located? I-10 in TX is a big place :)

uh could it simply be a trainging mission or something?

not a big deal. i live in south houston and the hover around elington all the time. when you see one or two flights in diamond formation it usualy means the president is in town to see his folks.

Apaches....So what! When MCAS El Toro was still open here where I live, We'd see F/A-18's flying out to the pacific ocean loaded with ordinance (pressumably to bomb the Navy's target "San Clemente Island"). Talk about a rush.... And I sure didn't panic. That was a daily thing.

yeah i see them all the time over at ellington all the time too. but where i live its only 2 or 3 times a year, with usually a minimum of 3 helis. ok the truth is i needed a reason to post on AR15.com and it just heppend to fly by so i posted it.

Great! Thanks alot! [;D] I was all ready to eat MRE's for the remaining two weeks of my life. Then I would shoot and eat my now radioactive horse. You guys ruined it for me. And I thought you guys always told the truth. Sheesh.

Now how in the heck do you know they were "Fully Armed"? I took this pic of a training bird my bud was piloting... Looks fully armed but they fly with dummies to keep the weight and aerodynamics right. [img]http://www.gulftel.com/tnolfe/W2Andy.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.gulftel.com/tnolfe/Badbird.jpg[/img]
