7 years, emailed me that he was gonna be in
Holland for the weekend doing an Air Show.
He is a Pilot in the United States Airforce.
So naturally, even though, I hadn't slept in 3 days,
I drove up and saw him.
This is a pic of the Rhine River near Cologne on my drive up.
He was like, just go to the biggest plane.
And he was right, he flys the big ol "Gas Station" Plane.
They are responsible for tanking other jets in flight.
Pretty risky stuff.
Imagine... flying thru enemy territory with
with a huge tank of gas. ...
that was KINDA interesting.
I wonder if that pollutes the air?
I know its hard being a popular Captain in the Air Force.
he took me all the way into the "Shell Station".
This area is an extra storage area,
so that they can also transport stuff.
Thats Captain David on the left.
The floor has these lil castors in it, that helps
shift the stuff around up there, so they
dont have to work too hard.
Though, David doesn't do any of that.
He just flys the plane.
the long stick that sticks outta the
rear of the plane and fuels the jets.
physically guide the nozzle to the
jet and then to fuel.
It actually must be very mind boggling to
do all this thousands of feet up in the air
while going very very damn fast.
Makes me happy to have a simple job. HA!
And completely sober!
another 7 years until I see David again.
Its hard traveling the world, because I don't get to see
friends for a long time sometimes... hmm...
