or TransLant. They are prepping to base out of Palma de Majorica and leaving tomorrow.
Do you realize how much "Cadillac Chits" and Travel Claims forms weigh? There's a lot of weight and balance planning that goes into this fly-off!

Anyone else sporting a Daiquiri Palace T-shirt for buy 10 drinks from the lovely ladies???
Never made it there but I did get very very drunk my first day in Palma. Left the boat in the morning walking and went into the first bar I saw. Didn't leave until late that night. Had no idea how to get back to the boat but I just kept walking down hill until I found it again. The women in Majorca were stunning.

Granted, my carrier experience is limited to one cruise, but during that cruise I know for certain that the COD never had to bring out an entire engine. That seems like something that could be much more easily accomplished via conrep.

An F-35 engine won't fit in the C-2 so maybe not totally a moot point?
Really? Still find this surprising. Kinda puts us up shit creek, we can't realistically bring a larger a/c aboard. I mean we deff cannot support a wider wingspan in the LA right?
