almost time to be reunited with the Brute

Well,

After being gone for 5 months it's almost time for us to go home, I can't wait to see the family and ride the Brute around.
here's some pic at the office, it was taken from the tanker operator after we took some fuel.

The Brutale doesn't feel a bit lame after that ride? It's probably safer too! Enjoy

MV Ultra Take the ride!

17 - Something about riding a motorcycle...I guess it's a lot like flying, it never gets old!

here is another picture the photographer took while I was pulling away and a few more from the cockpit...The cockpit view doesn't suck

Very nice work, great photography...and a great profession...even when it gets all funky 'on task'

Thanks for sharing - really inspirational. Keep safe, and get home and ride!

Nice pics!! Are you "Skull" or "Veal" I always wanted to fly one of those, but courtesy of my vision I have to settle with this...

Thanks! Yeah, it's quite a dream...fly the Brute to work, fly the pointy nose at work
I'm working on that......lurking around for a "needing TLD" F4 for full time track duty I might need to sell a kidney, but it will be worth it...

Dingo and BrutaleLuke - We were in Darwin a few months ago, second time for me down under (country...) and it's always a good time, thanks for the well wishes. I'll find a way to go to Sydney before I retire for sure!

b42day- The jets are marked by order of seniority but we fly all of them. There is no specific jet you are assigned to, but if you are referencing the seat, I would be where Skull is...and I have a few friends who fly for Conti as well
