Thats a cool pic, and thinking its from incountry... Looking at the weapons configuration.. One of you Air Force types fill us in, is the big cylinder on starbord wing just a drop tank? I'm thinking due to weight balance it might not be, and maybe is one of those hi buck side look, down look radar thingies..

I intend to live forever, or die trying. It Could Be that the Purpose of Your Life is Only to Serve as a Warning to Others. Join the Army, meet interesting people, kill them. All those who believe in psychokinesis raise my hand.

Look Down Shoot Down Radar in the radome in the nose. ryo not think the device is a drop tank. it might be an AC Assault Canister of some kind, maybe with carbon fibre filaments for attacking electrical transformer stations of some other type of AC. not real sure about this part though.

your friend,

That's a "travel pod"

We called those "travel pods" in the USAF. Might be called different in the Navy or Marines as this is an F-18. They are basically just used to carry essential stuff when we were deployed. By "essentials", I mean the pilot's golf clubs and baggage. The pods we used to install on the F-4E were actually reclaimed Vietnam era napalm canisters.

This is a picture of a Navy or Marine air refueling operation. The "basket" style refueling hose is the clue you need to identify that. The Air Force uses a "boom" style delivery system that is literally "flown" by the boom operator into position.

Just because it's legal don't mean it's right.

Pilot girlfriends...

Funny thing about that Hampster...Nobody ever actually saw pilots with women. Mostly they just hung around together in groups and talked about women. Meanwhile the ground crews were chasing and catching everything in sight!

I had the same experiance on my deployments.. I was all pizzed off at a zero (for being stupid) in Sangley pt. one time, an old chief says ed let it go you can go out on the town tonight and have fun with a bar girl.. He can't .. so now im the dumb one, like why chief?.. and he explaines the deal that zeros had with messing around.. Seems the stuff all us E's would do was was frowned on "BIG TIME" by the brass for Officers.. After that i was a bit more tolerent of them, they still had thier share, but they had to go (on that deployment) into Manila, and ha ha pay a LOT more...
