Best of luck, Mike. My dad started out as a C-47 driver in WW II and his career spanned anything from paradrop and towing gliders to tankers and F-4's before he retired. My career was spent in the back of various RC-135's and EC-130's, although I did sit on the camera box on occasion to watch landings.

Best run was a low-go in the early 90's over the Arabian Gulf, back of a 130 wearing a harness ...the AC and I spoke about coral and reefkeeping and he gave me a first hand view of a chunk of the Gulf reefs while sitting on the rear bunk.

Fly good, man.
