Welcome back to our channel for a feature on the US Air Force B-2 Spirit stealth bomber, the flying wing, and what it takes to get a squadron of these massive aircraft airborne in a matter of minutes. When I was working at the manufacturing plant we called this plane the 581. We didn’t know what it was. They called it the 581 because our contract was assigned to us in May of 81. Was a fun project to work on. I read there, Elephant Walk, is that different than MITO or same but specific to B 2? I read the mission would be get aircraft to safety as incoming likely. True that. I saw this happen at Mac Dill AFB Tampa the 48 hours leading up to the crisis and Defcon 1 and 3/4. Massive excellence that happens when the hobby is war and the profession is Peace. I also witnessed MITO on Andersen AFB Guam Territory of USA, in smaller numbers than the Cuban Missile Crisis. I still learn things Brat that the Life taught me that were meant to be realized later. My mind says these "cameto me years later" is a validation of the dynamic observations and conclusions drawn to adopt as my outlook and standard for myself, chosen already and practiced proven abilities that can stand alone with courage faing life or death. Brat opinion the cost of freedom for all is likely to be taken from every one who has it everyday Brat or Person born raised and staying in their hometown will experience homesickness at different levels. Not anything new about that really. What is new to me even and I don't mind admitting, I'm homesick for my hometown that's behind the Bse gates where the AP do not understand the word play, friend, be nice, rude. They speak the words that detect leaks of information that might jeopardize a freedom. AP Air Police man have you ever seen them guarding with their enlisted K9 airdogman? Behave in their presence is all you can do and come out mostly inscathed hha, the vibe is serious. I still miss my hometown Home is Any Air Base USA or overseas and my DOD schools my classmates. We got to class every morning and unconsciously do our own roll call before the teacher. Brats are seldom off school being heathy FR. But we usually knew when heavy battles were underway living on Guam. When our classmates dads flew out MITO in responding to a mission or as support for troops on the ground we Knew for a fact the SAM's accuracy of the VC was known to be lethal. Word travels fast base to base when life lost the highest consideration is for the dependants at home a wife and kids or Air Force Spouse and Brats, received the visit and given the news. The family is immediately wisked away either to where the body will arrive or to the AFSpouce choice of locations. So our classmates we know what they have suffered and given to gift the USA our hero fathers' was protecting everyone's freedom and we respect and feel the loss. That fuels us to live aware of freedom, it does have to wax and wan on many levels. Don't be fooled, freedom continues to ring farther than before but there will always be evil to reign in, keep at bay. Pray that there are always people who rise to qualify as War hobbiest having Peace as their profession.
