    If they can't balance an island how do you expect them to balance a budget? LOL. Mike.

    What an idiot. Why does he think they built the landing strip right down the middle of the island? You'd think the engineers didn't know about the "island tipping over" problem.

    What a leader

    I used to ride on B 52's out of Anderson AFB there, we were in D models, and they were slightly under powered when it was hot,that made the density altitude a lot higher

    We would take off runway 17 with a 305,000 lb fuel load and 68,000 lbs of bombs, it would take the whole runway roll and we would have to dive off the cliff at the end, to pick up air speed yo climb, really made you A$$ hole pucker up when we would do that, there were a few that didn't make it

    A lot of people don't realize that you had a period in your takeoff roll where a loss of a tire, an engine or water injection, etc. made it impossible to take off and there was not enough runway to stop. You probably heard the rumors then that the island was shaped like a mushroom, there were submarine bases under the island, etc. Ron

    I served on a submarine aircraft carrier and once, during sea trials, we started to surface, and the periscope hit the underside of Guam and almost tipped it over. Thank goodness the old man did a crash dive.
    LOL

    Ron, one time we were taking off form Elsworth, in a G model, they had just done a redball engine change on the #7 engine in it was in the summer about 100 degrees, and when they changed the engine somebody forgot to put a cotter key in a pin on one of the engine mounts, right at rotation the pin fell out, the engine swung away from the firewall, so we lost power on #7 and water on #8, thought we had bit the bullet, thank God a buff can crab steer, we made it off the ground and had to circle base for about 7 hours to burn off enough fuel to land

    Damn glad we had a good AC, and he was on his toes
