All the bad news coming from Rolls Royce must be great for these guys. Pratt and Whitney makes great stuff....

It was always fun doing engine runs in the 22 with the P&W 119's. They "say" 35,000 lbs of thrust....times 2. We werent "supposed" to go above 80% on the flightline....we all did at least once haha. The pucker factor is up there when you have the brakes mashed down and youre watching the RPM's go past 80%, and thats just one engine above 80%, The guy on the ground can hardly hear you through the headset lol.

Only got one flight in a C-141 from Nellis to Tyndall. Pretty bare bones as always. KC-10 is where its at lol. C-17's aren't bad as long as you find a good spot to lay out once the seat belt sign comes off. Never jumped chalks though in anything....eng run on F-15E's and F-22's.......never ballsy enough b/c it was usually at the end of a 12 hr shift and i just wanted to get done and go home.
