Yes, it was sorta a dream job except for the long furloughs (5 years), strikes with a picket sign, 12-13 day Orient trips and returning in a 3 day state of shock and missed sleep (wanted to mow the lawn in Bloomington at 3am wide awake but -thankfully, stopped by wife Sue).

Yep, good to be retired for sure.

Regards,

Dux -off to Tucson

Incident: Singapore B744 near Denpasar on Oct 26th 2015, sheepish smoke indication


By Simon Hradecky, created Tuesday, Oct 27th 2015 21:20Z, last updated Tuesday, Oct 27th 2015 21:20Z

A Singapore Airlines Boeing 747-400 freighter, registration 9V-SFI performing flight SQ-7108 from Sydney,NS (Australia) to Kuala Lumpur (Malaysia) with 4 crew and a cargo of 2,186 sheep, was enroute at FL320 about 400nm south of Denpasar (Indonesia) when the crew received a smoke indication in a cargo bay, descended the aircraft to FL250 and diverted to Bali Denpasar for a safe landing about 45 minutes later. Emergency services did not find any trace of fire, heat or smoke.

The smoke indication was identified to be the result of exhaust gasses and manure produced by the sheep.

The aircraft was able to depart again after about 2.5 hours on the ground in Denpasar and reached Kuala Lumpur about 2.5 hours later.

I don't know what the size of elephant output would be expressed in sheep units, but that was a lot of sheeps!

Make you wonder if the guys answering the employment ad for "aircraft cleaning technician" had any idea what they were in for...

I won't bother anyone with the time a fella got amoebic dysentery on one of our Recon patrols (didn't wait long enough after putting water tablets into canteen before drinking). He used all the patrol's toilet tissue before loading him on a Huey which, of course, had doors off. After a bit, he didn't bother wiping. Fellow team members were asked if they would help the helo crew clean up when we got back. Everyone got pretty busy and couldn't break free. Fella that created the mess was in no shape to do anything.
