    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    Re: I'm outta here!!

    I've always been wondering about something like this.
    Forgive my ignorance lol. How did the 106 get their helos over there?
    Fly 'em over - keep refueling and following the coastline of Asia down to Japan?
    To me this seems like the most probable but thats one heck of a long trip there.
    Or did they just reposition the personel and assign the helos there?
    Or fly everyone over helos and all inside a C-17 (I'm thinking of when they did that with the decommisioned F-14 minus the wings)?

    The birds got there by C-5/C-17. The blades fold up.

    Home!! Thanks to a World Airways DC-10. Went from Asia to Europe to North America in 18 hours roughly. Pics later when I get home, got a quick flight from BWi to JFK later on.

    The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!
