A blog about my interest in all things military, wargaming and last but not least my military vehicle adventures.
Some rigger is in allot of trouble! Seen that happen once on a helicopter lift ofa 105mm howitzer, it was supposed to rigged with four 10,000lbs sling legs, into a 25,000lb clevis then a 25,000lb sling leg. Well he did it right except that he substituted a 10,000 sling leg after the 25,000lb clevis.....Actually flew for a bit, then snap right down on an old lava field on the big island of Hawaii. Therewere just pieces of gun and ammo all over.
Not a failed drop at all, Every thing hit the ground!But yeah once while on DZ duty I also watched a 105 howitzer lawn dart Sicily drop zone.And did a night time mash attack where two of those trucks burned in. They called the jump halfway because the DZ was on fire. Of course I had already jumped over the flames. Good times! :D
GuysThanks for sharing your experiences, they made me smile :)Keep well :)
