All day today, I heard helicopters flying overhead. President Bush is coming to town on Friday, and I thought it would just be some CH-47's transporting security. Well, on my way home, on the highway, there comes a loud helicopter sound. I look up, and there's two VH-3D's flying in a formation over the highway. When I got home, they flew over my house! So I called the airport to ask if that was really a VH-3D. I asked the woman in the Security Office over the phone if that was the VH-3D. She answered "There isn't going to be a motorcade Friday". Then I asked, "Did the Transport plane arrive with the helicopters yet? Her response: "There isn't going to be a motorcade Friday".
So I get to the airport, but only visible were some Cessna Citation II's and a Hooters 732. But as I drove around the parking lot, I saw 2 VH-3D's and six CH-47's parked in front of the hanger fathest from the terminal! So I walk to a gate next to this hanger, and 2 HMX-1 pilots come over to me, and invite me into the Hanger!
It was a dream come true!

Never stop dreamimg and never stop trying to make your dreams true. 🙂
Wow, congrads Chris! You are one extremely lucky person. 👍
That is great Chris! 😀 I know how you feel. I have the unlikely ability to feel that way whenever I feel like it 😎 . Living in Ohio is for the most part a drag, but it does have one feature that more than makes up for it. The US Air Force museum at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, OH. If any of you ❗ EVER ❗ feel like visiting, let me know and I will be more than happy to meet you there. I have been through that place 8 times and still get goose-bumps thinking about seeing it again
Ooooh I can imagine that tingling feeling as you enter the cockpit - Just amazing - Congrats
Thanks for your kind words!
