Can you call me in the afternoon sometime, got a issue that you might be able to assist with. One of my station 15 vols is having some difficulty with FSFC on getting the state FF1 exam. She completed the CCFR FF1 class a year ago and the state has her paperwork. Hoping that you would know who she needs to speak with. I work nights, anytime after 2pm is good any day of the week
It's the army's version, called a CH-47 Chinook. The 46 & 47 were both built by Boeing. The US Navy & Marine Corps operate the 46, while the 47 is currently only operated by the Army. It has the capability to lift over 11,000 pounds of water in that bambi bucket. Could be of great assistance to us in the coming fire season. The unit moved to Cecil from Craig airport a few years ago and recently added the 47's to the hanger. One of my fellow St 15 vols is a full time flight medic on the blackhawk. Thanks for the heads up about Jim, will look him up as well. As for FRE, was only there for a few hours, had to work that night. Took my father in law, made the rounds and left within 2 hours or so. Made the 12 hour night shift much longer, but FRE is always worth attending. I found the old E221, it's over in a junkyard in Lake City. I believe that I still have some pics of it, I will post them when I get home in the morning.
Enjoy the retired life
