    Not all loaders are bad. My dad was a loader. Don't get me wrong, there were a bunch of idiots, but there were some good 'urns as well.

    Guess we have all worked with our share of idiots :scared:

    So your dad was a loader. Mine was in WWII. I spent 24yrs at it and one of my sons just completed a hitch as one.
    Probably makes us all idiots sometimes!! :thumbsup:

    Come on AMMO.... I know that there are more of you out there!!!!
    Don't let an old 462 hog the conversation

    I've seen every airplane I've worked on at DM. The IA ANG A7's were there for awhile, but are beer cans now. The early block F-16's from Hill are still there, I think. The C-141's I was an FE on are getting cut up as soon as they get there. :sad:

    Loaded many a BDU-33. :supergrin:

    Watched an F100C that I once worked on take off as an R/C Target Drone for an F15A that I had just launched. That one was scrap metal quickly!

    In the time frame of POMO (74-78)(served as a wpns load crew chief & A/C crew chief) I was the swingshift crew chief for F15A 73100. It is now on a pedestal at Langley AFB.

    My how time flies :shocked:

    I was CUT trained as a crew chief too. Load crew chief and part time Aircraft crew chief. Lot of work, but it did get me an F16 ride!:banana:

    Where's all the AMMO guys? Did we chase them away?

    Damn Loaders! :supergrin:

    4 years Nuclear Weapons, 46350, FE Warren and Vandenberg, 1972-1976; 8 years AMMO 46170, St Louis Air Guard 1984-1992, F-4s and F-15s; now I've been the training manager in the Memphis Air Guard for 15 years, very borng compared to AMMO and Nukes.

    I've seen a lot of stuff on the flightlines all over the world. Mostly I got along with loaders, great folks, WSOs seemed to be our problem in St Louis, they werent allowed to fly the Rino but they sure wanted to tell us how to do things...I remember one who came down to the dump and complained to the chief that not one of his 4 LGBUs hit the the targets, but that everyone else's did..our chief in his awesome style, said, "Guess you're gonna have to practice more ya little prick."

    I was in the desert last year with a bunch of young troops, we were working for CE escorting third country nationals as they worked on our base, anyway, one of the young AMMO troops told me that the commander at Barksdale AFB would not let them yell, "If You Ain't AMMO, You Ain't ****!" anymore, seems it hurt other peoples feelings....ooooohhhh, what is the world coming to. That was half the fun, we were AMMO, they weren't, that sucked for them.

    There are times I am very worried about the USAF and yes I hear lots of gripes from the other services as well about their own practices....I think the "perfumed princes" have taken over, as LtCol Hackworth (may he RIP) used to call them.
