WHAT PILOTS SEE WHEN LANDING AT OFFUTT AIR FORCE BASE

A farmer does this with his tractor. He uses GPS to get the letters readable.
He has done this every fall for several years now.
Here’s the view from the flight pattern into OFFUTT AIR FORCE BASE
Bellevue, NE., just south of Omaha .
This is what our servicemen see when landing at Offutt AFB.
Hat tip to the Bellevue farmer who made it happen!
 
Okay e-mail buddies, let’s keep this going until everyone has seen it
Without the news media’s help.
This should have made national news.
Imagine how this must feel to all those servicemen
Seeing it for the first time.
It tells them that we do care and that we do support them.
Let’s make it a BIG THANK YOU by sending it around the world.

Remember to obey the rules……

 

 

‘Rules Are Rules’

It was a normal day in Sharon Springs , Kansas ,when a Union Pacific crew boarded a loaded coal train for the long trek to Salina ..


The Bad news:

Just a few miles into the trip, a wheel-bearing became overheated, and
melted, letting a metal support drop down and grind on the rail,
creating white hot molten-metal droppings spewing down to the rail.

The Good news:
A very alert crew noticed smoke about halfway back in the train, and
immediately stopped the train in compliance with the Union Pacific
Safety Rules.

The Bad news:
The train stopped with the hot wheel over a wooden bridge, with
creosote ties and trusses.

The crew tried to explain to CEO ‘Higher-Ups’, but were
instructed NOT to move the train !

They were instructed
‘The Rules Book’ prohibits
moving the train when a part is defective !

REMEMBER… RULES ARE RULES!
Don’t
EVER/NEVER let common sense get in the way of a good disaster!
