Gunfighter Diary Desert Storm 26 Feb 91

26 Feb 91

Headed to the flight line, CO had told me the night before to stay and get 205 tested if it was ready. It had been overtorqued the week before then cannibalized for 210. So Peewee left me there. 205 needed everything tested, engines, main rotor, tail rotor. Spent all day with it, then an engine component failed. Slept in Flight Equipment because the Vipers (169) had rolled into town and taken over our tents.
