    Back from Katrina

    Hey folks. Back from deployment down south. It is quite a mess. My airstation in Elizabeth City, NC sent about thirty folks and 3 aircraft. It was like an aviation reunion for the Coast Guard. It was extremely busy and I heard that our aviators rescued 4700+ over the last two weeks. Gonna take a while to get things straightened out. It smells horrible.

    I guess I missed a heck of a game We'll get them on the next one.
    Its better to lose the first game than the last one.

    I was talking with a heli pilot from the hospital here in Houston and he said he got shot at twice in NO. They did manage to get a lot of people out before that incident.

    Glad to have you back safe and sound!

    Thanks for your help in the south.

    Shots were fired. CG was running 18+ sorties/ day and no one was hurt, but we were lucky.

    That is amazing no one was hurt, especially the chopper that went down.

    What was the cause of that anyway?

    It was ATC hell. Way too many birds in the air in too small a space. Everyone means well, but...
