Where’s My Jet?

Ever wonder where your jet wound up?  Put in storage at AMARC or maybe flown as a drone and then blew away by some F-22 jock.  The lucky ones get put in museums or on a stick or maybe they’re a Gate Guard.

Scroll down the page and find your jet.  If it’s blank, claim your jet.  I know you took pictures so pull them out and upload them here so I can add them to the list. Who crewed it? Who was the pilot? What was the Rank then?

GERMAN BEER DRINKING SONGS

Auf! Auf! Auf dem Tisch und SING!

Up! Up! Up on the table and SING!

So there we were in Munich for Oktoberfest.  We walked into the Lowenbrau tent and they were playing Glenn Miller. “In the Mood”.  Quite a culture shock, not what I expected.  When we finally found a table we were wedged between the “Italian Beer Drinking Team”, some Army tankers from Baumholder and of course some Germans.  People would jump on the tables and shout a toast.

“Hier ist nach Deutschland!” [crowd roars]

“Ecco l’italia!”[crowd roars]

“Here’s to America!”[crowd roars]

At one point, I hoisted myself up and screamed:

“Here’s to daylight precision bombing!”[crowd roars]

I got back down and the German next to me, leaned over and said, “I heard that”. and winked. “PROST!”

I knew the songs and sang along.  My fellow Puppies felt left out.  We huddled.  We then belted out the theme to “Gilligan’s Island”.  The Germans loved it.  We thought we were so cleaver.  But the Army guys went into a huddle and then belted out theme song for “The Brady Bunch”. [crowd roars]

Thus began the Battle of the TV Show Songs.  We went back at forth. “Addams Family”, “Batman”, “Super Chicken”.  Google it.  Even the Germans kicked in with a good rendition of “Hi,ho,hi,ho, it’s off to work we go”. In  English no less.  The Italian Beer Drinking Team was too busy drinking.

Yeah, that’s Jon Cooley conducting.

 

AT OKTOBEREST IT’S NOT ALL POLKAS
