Flew the C-130 from Nigeria to Zambia. Landing on an unimproved, unlighted field just before nightfall and in a thunderstorm. Knowing there was no way to refuel, I carried a bunch of fuel. Could I really have landed with that much weight on an unimproved field? Stats below:

Those covert operations are going to get you into trouble CG !
Actually, they are clandestine operations. Both secret and illegal.
The strange part is that it is the airline with the fastest rising reputation here. Could it be that I enjoy these missions too much?
Be careful - when I become familiar with the Herk I may sell myself to the other side !
you will have a dodgy mullet next and will be cavorting about with Goldie Horn..
Bird on the Wire?
I'm getting too old to cavort.
so is Goldie!
Remember that you are only as old as you think you are.
That bad, huh?
