IN HOC SIGNO said:Duey didn't you fly one of those things once???
Didn't they have the nick name...."the flying pig?"
Why is that??? and would you fly em again????
Saw some of the guys in Pet on ex in 91 in the field...I think it was their last ex....they flew in from Ottawa to help us (ha ha). They were pretty choked about losing their birds. :rage:
Duey said:SKT, haven't heard...the decision is pretty high level...I'll likely be flying a black helo inserting "the wind" before it's sorted out..dang, now I have to refresh myself on the 146 AOIs before the 147A...
IN HOC SIGNO said:Wouldn't they reactivate the old squadrons?
Duey said:In Hoc, not necessarily. I have heard some discussion about "compsite" squadrons, i.e. operating more than one type of aircraft. The biggest problem with entirely new squadrons is the PY "overhead" (HQs, etc... of a separate sqn) associated with an additional organization. Notwithstanding increases to pers levels, things are still tight at the PY coal face...
