(NC Base Commander): "AHHH!!! The noise from those low flying B-70s is annoying get them out of here, NOW!!!"
(NC Control Tower Operator): "Looks like I picked the wrong week to quit snorting glue." (snorts glue fumes.)

Fueling up 2 dozen F-111 including 4 EF-111. Where should we go? Any ideas?

The Armored Armory Repair Facility is working to get some M1A1 (really old M1, N-34) refurbished for Estonia.
Also refurbishing old Leopard 1 for the Parade Grounds of Republic of Bellman (ROB).

Americus Island in the Mediterranean Sea.
4 F-111 took off heading west by southwest.
Conducting flybys for the 2nd SHAM in the Atlantic just off the coast of Africa. Cruising 550-600 BT the ships as wings sweep back.
The decks were pack with crew taking pictures, watching or waving. After leaving the area of the SHAM increased altitude and speed to Mach 1.4 for a series of booms. After flying out for 15 minutes conducted a 180. Slowing down some allowing gravity to help maintain speed for last flyby at Mach .9 where the plane was almost faster than the sound of the engines. Then back to Americus Island.

Out of Lahr...”

I see your point redleg, I rescinded that No fly zone. Still the CofC should cease and desist performing these reckless stunts at our base in Lahr. The F-111s can go to Ukraine to bug the Eurasian Empire troops there.
Heck no, the EE will fire upon us. Then the CoC would need to kill them in bunches and bunches.
Besides NC is being trained with these visits.
. 24 F-111 fly low over the administration building, tarmac, runways, hangers, shops screaming in with 48 engines at full after burner moving speed up to 600 as elevation increases avoiding a sonic boom. The Canadians get really upset with loud noises. So just the engines .... in and gone in about 18 seconds.

Trained for what? There was no training program scheduled to take place at CFB Lahr. These fly bys was rather unexpected and uncalled for. not to mention its scaring the locals in the city of Lahr.

Some of the NC personal fled in Jeeps and Trucks to our sister base at CFB Baden-Soellingen in order to escape from the low flying CofC aircraft and the noise of their jet engines. Gave the staff at CFB Baden quite a surprise to hear what was going on. eventually after calming them down, they grabbed some Molson Canadian beer and some fishing gear and head to the Rhine River to fish for Atlantic Salmon and Brown Trout.

Heres a better idea, have the CofC jets do the fly bys over the ROD Base in Schweinfurt instead of us in CFB Lahr.

Isn't it reassuring to know how easily spoijed and sensitive the NC military forces are? Basic training must consist of planting flowers in the barracks gardens and learning to arrange the results in pretty bouqets.

Happy birthday to ROD.

Can’t spell that long word. Lahr it is. We have flown over the ROD base. We have a few troops there, about a dozen.

Well Panzer those CofC Jets caught us off guard while in the middle of reconfiguring our C&C room in Lahr into our Overseas Operations Command. And their reckless fly bys has disrupted our efforts.

PG,
this is the realistic training that they guys need. Not all battles are fought as 2 armies mass opposite each other, then form up in clean lines marching forward as the drums beat-off and flags popping in the wind.
.
Guess he did not see or hear the B-70 flying at 64,000 feet at Mach 2.5. That training did not do any good for the NC forces.
Maybe next week we will set up a terra-attack with blanks, smoke grenades, flash simulation grenades. The guys will yell 'bang', 'bang', The tankers will yell clack-clink, ..... as they are serving in a tank. That would be much more reasonable.

The ROD troops like it when those big jets come in low and fast! It's a great way to initiate an alert drill as well - much more effective than a siren going off on post!

Thank you for the birthday wishes!

Geez, the rules here prevent me from using a proper word to describe that excuse and the behavior of your "troops."

You are cleared after the C-17 takes off and clears 3000 feet, over.

Landings every 15 seconds with Standard Deviation of 1.2 seconds. Land safely.....
We appreciate the ROD ground crew helping us.
