Adventures in...Nope not Babysitting, I was going to say "March"

SPC Riggle and SPC Slaton get the aircraft ready for refuel

Taking off following another aircraft in formation flight.

Picking up patients for transfer to a better care facility.

I guess you never know when you are being watched. SFC Peden takes a picture of me taking a picture of him.

Flying over some of the fields of residents living West of Kandahar. These types of fields are common, surrounding a walled compound/home where the owners live.

Here's the reason that SFC Peden and I had our cameras out in the first place. It's not everyday that you get to see your 1SG getting violently sick while flying.

Sometimes while waiting for the next mission we have the chance to take a breather and do some people/aircraft watching of our own.

Watching the other aircraft do their thing in a multiship operation.

CW2 Pete Latham and I flew several missions together in March and we had a good time. During some of these long missions, one of the best things that help pass the time are the stories that you hear from the other pilot or the crew chiefs in the back.
