That was fricking great!
The year was 1995, 50 years anniversary of the end of "The Big One." Serious Aviators amassed an armada of WWII Aircraft on the Left Coast, around Chino to get ready to fly XC CONUS in a Victory Lap. Well, one Sunday afternoon, have to dig out my old Log Books to get the exact date, but never mind, here goes for all ya'll Feral Geeks out there in Cyber Land!! The place: Skydive Elsinore (CA), time: late afternoon, I'm walking towards manifest and I notice up on the Ridge line of the Ortegas I see and hear a B-17 Flying Fortress and a B-24 Liberator just cruisin' the ridge line headin' South. About that time I hear the distinct sound of "8 Big Round Corn Cobb Engines" start to "Spool up" and the lead Plane, the "17" starts to tip a wing and it is just so friggin' obvious they want to do a "Gear Check!!" AKA "BUZZ JOB" and we were going to be the recipients!!!!! I started running towards the runway and yelling,"BUZZ JOB, BUZZ JOB!!!!!" amassing all the troops I could to do the "HONORS!!" We ran out onto the runway and as the lead plane leveled off on us over De Jongs dairy we "MOONED THEM" as they flew over heading out over Lake Elsinore!! Meanwhile, back in manifest, Kathy Jacklin was on the radio,"Aircraft overflying Skydive Elsinore for the gear Check...We didn't really get a good look, can you come back please??" Well I'm watching the planes out over the lake then first the lead plane the 17, stands up on its left wing, starts a 180* turn and starts back followed by the '24!!! Needless to say, we got another pass and we "MOONED THEM!!" again!!!!! BTW Rich Hayatt one of our freefall Cameramen, "GOT THE WHOLE THING ON TAPE!!!!!!!" Now that Boys and Girls, was "A BUZZ JOB!!" "The things we do for 'FUN!!" ......We got it on tape too!! "No Sh&t there I was!!!!!!"Blue Skies Black Death (BSBD)Got Gunz,III%,skybill-out
