This thread will have some pics from the infamous mini-reunion of AM, Harsey, Chris Reeve, and myself last week.

Sorry for the delay, but it took till today to recover.

Day One, Vertical Wind Tunnel.

Outside the Weapons Pool.

Not too hard to tell what this weapon is.

Great pics! I know the weapons pool building - good to see they didn't give the Bravos anything new.:D

Did they get to ride the fan?

Sir Reaper, Both Chris and I enjoyed the tour you gave us beyond words. Thanks also to Ambush Master for joining up and giving us his extraordinary historical perspective of Special Warfare. It goes without saying what an honor it is to be in the company of men like yourselves. Thank you. NDD, No we didn't ride the wind tunnel, figured I'd put too much stress on the turbines.

Negative on the "Fan" !! I would love to fly in that !!!!!

If you tossed Mr H into it,............. it would probably "Brown Out" all of Fayeteville to keep him aloft !!!!:D

Thank you Mr. Harsey!

NDD, we couldn't put all of the things we saw on a public site, but they do have some VERY sexy new toys for the Bravos, to include a completely new facility.

AM started having flashbacks to his days under the same overhead, wrenching on crossbows and siege weapons, and had to be transported to the GB Club for emergency infusion.

The VWT engine is rated at 3600 shaft HP, and we were going to put Bill in, but a class was in session and had priority.

Bill was inpressed by the instructors ability to fly in the tunnel, though, but he still wanted to use the fan in his forge.

Here they are digging through the SF Museum Archives Knife Collection. We did have to get special gloves to fit Little Billly Junior.

The weapons facility sure brings back the memories. For all those looking at that weapon, trust me when I say, “it’s bark is as bad as its bite!”

“Fire the main gun!”

Hope all had fun on their visit! As is becoming the norm on this site, Great Pictures TR!
And thanks for sharing!

TR : Again nice pics....except for that LAST ONE. The flash in AM's ear is too much.

There are three rules when taking pics of people in front of a mirror.

1) Use some type of flash defuser
2) Use a bouncecard on the flash.

3) DON'T TAKE PICTURES OF PEOPLE STANDING IN FRONT OF MIRRORS !!!!:D

Thank you for your advice.

I'll keep that in mind when using my sub $200 digi-cam.

Did you mean "diffuser"?

Ahhhh......Yeah. That's it.

I'm knot that good a spelling letters.

Crocodile........ K...R...O...K...O...H...D...I...L...E





Actually....I'm wrong.

That last pic was GREAT !!!!

Since I assume you took the pic, the flash in the mirror is covering you face in the reflection. Saves you time from having to go and put that little 'Black' strip over your eyes.

Besides, it looks like there's just this white light over your body....Kinda like the Face of GOD........................Anyone else get a shiver up their spine?

We know.

No, most of us have seen Reaper drop a hammer on someone before.

As I told someone that I worked for several years ago, " Ya know Jim,.................I've KILLED,............. FAR BETTER men than YOU,....... many many of them !!! They were HONORABLE men, fighting for their country. Now, exactly where do you think that puts YOU in my overall scheme of things !!!!

Do Take Care.
