Brown side out, Green side out, run in Circles, Scream and Shout...

We have spent the week getting ready to go, while the Wing decides what our final aircraft mix will be. Our T/O is 12 Hueys, 12 Cobras. At one point we are up to 24 Cobras with no Hueys. Right now we seem to have settled down at 18 Cobras and 6 Hueys. For my guys, though, they have spent all week checking pilots in and out of the squadron, and trying to ensure everyone has the right flight equipment. They are doing a great job.
