This is an excerpt from writings by Jay Lacklan. I enjoy reading his excerpts on the Fans of FRED page on book face. I plan on adding his works to my reading list.
The incredible story of the C-5 crew...“I called the middle tanker, below me: ‘What number are you, in the middle?’ He responded, ‘I’m tanker #2.’ I said, ‘No, you are now tanker #1 and we are on the way down. Also, just to warn you, if we don’t get this gas right now, we are going swimming,'” Jay Lacklen, former C-5 pilot
