So they shuffle us out and I see this c-130 and my jaw drops and and almost **** my pants. On the side in massive letters, "CALIFORNIA AIR GUARD". Now as a nasty girl, I know what happens on two weeks. Well first day went off without a hitch, second day we were stuck in the hanger for three hours because the air guard pilots were so hung over. Third day, mine and three other sticks were last and its late as hell as its the night jump. Sgt Airborne gets on the PA and says, "Is anyone in here airfarce? No? Good or else I would smoke the **** out of you right now. Juliette just dropped a whole entire stick over the trees." As for my exit that night, I was dropped over the trees but thank god to horrible conditions I think, I made it inside the DZ.
Hope you dont get an airguard plane
