Criminy!

What a week. Apologies for the late post, the dubious reward of essential personnel duties.

No niceties here. A simple plan.

We will meet 8pm UK time at MacDill AFB - KMCF, Runway 22
Weather: Border of a High Pressure
Time: Dawn
Aircraft: C-17 (no others, it's time for Heavy Metal!)

Owing to the crass stupidity of local politicos, Tampa was a heaving mess of drunken Spring Breakers pawing and vomiting all over each other when they should have been self-isolating. Not to be outdone, Louisiana shouts "Hold ma beer!" and parties hard for Mardi Gras doing much the same thing as the students but with beads as well.

Consequently, we're going to start out in some heavies at Air Mobility Command's MacDill AFB, then head over to the Big Easy via Panama City Beach and Pensacola. Having already removed our Covidatious samples from the City of Tampa, we'll get more there. They will be loaded up while we're on our break. (that means doors down gents!). Post break, we leave Nawlins and head on out for the CDC in Atlanta, Georgia to finish out.

KMCF
KPFN
KNPA
KMSY
Break. Take on more nasty samples.
KMXF
KPDK - because the authorities don't want us at Hartsfieid Intl. Airport.

If we arrive a little early I'll have us leave KPDK in CH-53e choppers to run the short trip to the actual location of the CDC.

See ya there!

PS For the unknowing, the Big Easy or Nawlins are slang names for New Orleans, LA.

Any stairway is a stairway to heaven if you’re clumsy enough.
If your shirt isn’t tucked into your pants, your pants are tucked into your shirt.
Your stomach thinks all potatoes are mashed.
Most of the sky is actually below your feet.
The object of golf is to play the least amount of golf.
