Not all loaders are bad. My dad was a loader. Don't get me wrong, there were a bunch of idiots, but there were some good 'urns as well.

Guess we have all worked with our share of idiots :scared:

So your dad was a loader. Mine was in WWII. I spent 24yrs at it and one of my sons just completed a hitch as one.
Probably makes us all idiots sometimes!! :thumbsup:

Come on AMMO.... I know that there are more of you out there!!!!
Don't let an old 462 hog the conversation

I was stationed at Luke Field in Arizona working F100c's & d's when the A-7 came onboard....... oops, did I show my age?

I remember a smoke cloud drifting across the flightline from the A-7 Section. Seems a BDU-33 that wasn't fully locked fell out of a SUU-20 and there's something about the height of the A-7.......... and before safety pins......:outtahere: :outtahere:

Ain't it grand! Love fireworks

I've seen every airplane I've worked on at DM. The IA ANG A7's were there for awhile, but are beer cans now. The early block F-16's from Hill are still there, I think. The C-141's I was an FE on are getting cut up as soon as they get there. :sad:

Loaded many a BDU-33. :supergrin:

Watched an F100C that I once worked on take off as an R/C Target Drone for an F15A that I had just launched. That one was scrap metal quickly!

In the time frame of POMO (74-78)(served as a wpns load crew chief & A/C crew chief) I was the swingshift crew chief for F15A 73100. It is now on a pedestal at Langley AFB.

My how time flies :shocked:

I was CUT trained as a crew chief too. Load crew chief and part time Aircraft crew chief. Lot of work, but it did get me an F16 ride!:banana:

Where's all the AMMO guys? Did we chase them away?

Damn Loaders! :supergrin:

4 years Nuclear Weapons, 46350, FE Warren and Vandenberg, 1972-1976; 8 years AMMO 46170, St Louis Air Guard 1984-1992, F-4s and F-15s; now I've been the training manager in the Memphis Air Guard for 15 years, very borng compared to AMMO and Nukes.

I've seen a lot of stuff on the flightlines all over the world. Mostly I got along with loaders, great folks, WSOs seemed to be our problem in St Louis, they werent allowed to fly the Rino but they sure wanted to tell us how to do things...I remember one who came down to the dump and complained to the chief that not one of his 4 LGBUs hit the the targets, but that everyone else's did..our chief in his awesome style, said, "Guess you're gonna have to practice more ya little prick."

I was in the desert last year with a bunch of young troops, we were working for CE escorting third country nationals as they worked on our base, anyway, one of the young AMMO troops told me that the commander at Barksdale AFB would not let them yell, "If You Ain't AMMO, You Ain't ****!" anymore, seems it hurt other peoples feelings....ooooohhhh, what is the world coming to. That was half the fun, we were AMMO, they weren't, that sucked for them.

There are times I am very worried about the USAF and yes I hear lots of gripes from the other services as well about their own practices....I think the "perfumed princes" have taken over, as LtCol Hackworth (may he RIP) used to call them.

You loaders should be used to running people off. Not many people can stand the smell. :rofl:

Well almost everyone :tongueout:

We smell pretty good upwind! :thumbsup: Maybe it was the comment about dipping 20mm TP in colored wax that gave the impression that I was old as the hills and twice as smelly? :supergrin:

Well, one old smelly 462 signing off :usaf:

PS: All you AMMO troop keep our powder dry, never know when it will be needed!!!

Like I said, I always got along with Toads, but APs (SPs for you young folk) were a different matter, some of them had real attitudes.....I remember one telling me that the SPs owned the the nuclear weapons, and we were just allowed to work on them. I asked him who's name is on the Inspection Report Card (hint: the 463x0 nuke crew chief), He didn't know what an IRC was.

I guess there would be more AMMO folk here, but ya know, we're shy by nature...

I recently retrained out of Ammo after 5 1/2 years in the career field into IM/CSA. I loved the camraderie, and it is something that I miss dearly. I still wave to ammo troops when I am near the bomb dump! Currently stationed in Cannon AFB...at least they have a great shooting range off-base...that's about it, besides Wal-Mart.
