My MRT to D.C. pics

Well I got home around 2000hrs last night after my week up at Andrews AFB/D.C. doing that MRT. Was some good fun and hard work and I sure am glad to be home. Got the elevator changed in two days so we had Sat and Sun off for being tourists.

Now ill get on with the pics

We had to stop at Warner Robbins AFB, GA to pick up the new elevator. Here it is loaded up on 3 pallets in the back of the C-130

there seems to be a couple things missing from this F-15:doh0715:

and a hell of a lot missing from this C-5

the reason why we made this trip

our best guess is it started cracking at a rivet until enough of it cracked to let the wind get up under it and rip it off. That is only .020 sheet metal right there.


hoist hooked up

elevator off


these bolts that connect the two torque tubes and a couple bearings further down the horizontal stabilizer are all that hold the elevator on

and you have to stick your arms through this little hole to get to them

new one on


now to the sight seeing

I got choked up pretty good at Arlington seeing these sights

JFK

the view from the Arlington House

Civil war unknowns....2,111 unknown soldiers lie here

Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers and the Changing of the Guards


the Potamac river

D.C. Police have Blackhawks

Korean Memorial

Lincoln Memorial

view of Washington memorial from the Lincoln Memorial

Going up to the Vietnam memorial

Vietnam Wall

WWII memorial. I got choked up good here too












Washington Monument

White House

some really wierd Toyota Truck that was heavily modded. A bus stopped right after this pic so thats all i got.



Now on Sunday we hopped the Metro to the Air and Space museum, Natural History and American History Museums. I took a ton of pics, but due to low light they arent some of the best, plus i came home with 150 pics taken and im tired of uploading I am not going to post them. Maybe at a later date. Those museums are awesome. And being the Aircraft bum i am i loved the Air and Space museum. Cool thing in the American history museum was I got to see the flag that inspired the Star Spangled Banner. That was really cool.

Now I will post this one from the American History Museum. This is the Flag that was drapped across the Pentagon on 9/11

another one of those tear you up moments to me.

well that is all for now. hope you enjoyed my little pic fest.

Great pictures. Now I think I am going see about taking my parents to DC next year. They have never been there, and I know they would enjoy it...

Re: My MRT to D.C. pics

i went last summer. it is an amazing place when you look at all the monuments and know something about whet they're there for. Arlington is unbelievable and the tomb of the unknown is amazing too. I think the soldiers who guard it have to be perfect on everthing..they have to count perfectly and a ton of stuff. It is a great place for every American to at least visit once.
