I got to see them live on a Friday night at the Nellis O’Club many moons ago. It was a large night!

From I’m a Pilot:

Well I don't even know
Where the oil filter lies
But I'll tell you "Fix it faster, god dammit"
'Cause I'm the one who flies!
My favorite verse (because it’s true):

When I'm taxiing in
Do whatever it is you do
You can do a dance, pull down your pants
I don't care, I'm not even lookin' at you!

Same. Caesars or Bellagio, combined Red Flag roll call, late 2005 or early 2006.

Those were the days.

Indeed. I’d do it all over again. My dad is a Vietnam-era Herk driver and he says he would too.

Late 80's Nellis O'club was epic - before they built the new one.

Those days are loooooonnnnnggggggg gone.

I did my last flag in late '06. Still a decent time though.

06 or 07, the Saturday morning after Dos Gringos played at the Club...my dad called me.

“What the hell happened at the club last night?!?”

He’d gotten a haircut at the club. As he walked in, broken furniture, broken glass all over in the back parking lot. Probably some hung over young pilots helping clean up.

Yeah, those days are long gone. Do they even have Clubs any more, even “Consolidated” Clubs (barf)?

I doubt they were hungover. Still drunk, more likely...and possibly still drinking?

The grassy knoll always claimed a few victims as well. I think the CE guys built it on purpose for just that.

If you've ever tried to make it from the new o'club to the "q's" you know which one I'm talking about. After an epic night, if you rise early enough (or just never went to bed), there were always 2-3 bodies littered about. Seemed to claim many Brits if I'm not mistaken
