Gunfighter Diary Desert Storm 04 Mar 91

04 Mar 91

160176, 5T2, 1.1, 260, Space

Flew back to Jubail. Weather wasn't too bad, smoke and haze to the North, but pretty clear where we are. Got our gear back to the tent, read mail watched maintenance start scrubbing the aircraft and started packing. Definitely a memorable birthday. Chow was good, chicken parts stew. It's funny watching maintenance scrub the birds and we are just going to take them back out and get them slimy again. Guess they'll knock off the big chunks. One Huey came back filthy black from the oil smoke droplets, you couldn't touch any part of it without getting oil on you. It was clean, then we flew it again on photo recon. Spent the rest of the day throwing away bs from my bags. A little more gear gets tossed each time, I'll need new skivvies when I get home.
