    That picture is awesome! I was an aircraft mechanic for 20 years in the USAF.

    That’s pretty funny

    Obviously the Army arrow exiting stage right. Still doing it too!

      Or exiting stage left or rear depending on what side of the aircraft you’re exiting.

    The “Navy” exit arrows would be on the ramp in glow in the dark paint.

    Boats first, then frogs. Night time and way, way out over the deep blue sea.

    The Army side heads to OD tents for forty soldiers. The Air Force side heads to individual hotel rooms and a COLA bonus for a living hardship for proximity near soldiers.

    Personally, I always enjoyed just hanging out on that porch.
    But, it was also a hell of a lot of fun when it was time to leave.

    Love it!
    Though some USAF use the “exit” arrows – my USAF son has about 40 jumps (between 1000 and 25000 feet) in his career so far, and he doesn’t even graduate tech school until next week. Then the jumps really start accumulating!!

    As a former 5W. Nothing better than hearing “Army, your door”.

  10. Dave Hall says:

    Stefan S., that was way cool.

    In my mind there was one thing that was cooler, though.
    Showing five fingers palms out to the loadmaster and pointing to the right and feeling the plane bank right 5 degrees almost immediately after…and having it do that again whenever you indicated.

    I
    Miss
    That!
