But we arrived in London to be told the aircraft was 7 hours late (mechanical issues, aircraft had to be rerouted) and a very harried Sergeant was working frantically to reconfigure the chalks.
But at last we were organized into our chalk, put in our ear plugs and got loaded!
For a good part of our half hour flight the aircraft flew with the ramp down, which provided quite the view.
My friend Maj Steve Wilson (he's behind me in the above pic with white hair) has a very nice camera and took most of these pictures. My cell phone mostly got glare trying to shoot the open hatch.
It was quite the view as the large, but nimble, jet swooped along the shore of L. Erie.
A much later day than planned, but enjoyed by all.
