"Shirley airport exists no more. They are building condos around the area."

I remember after they closed Pepperille airport (or something like that) members of the the Trojan club cleared a drop zone behind Shirley airport. It was kind of small but it worked out for most of us in the club. Is the jail near Devens still there? I remeber making a jump and landing in the courtyard. That was fun. Almost as nice as the HALO teams landing in Sear's town.

Count Johnny G out of that equation....had a hard landing a few months ago at Yuma and broke his femur. Maybee you should have explored that bubble wrap plan a bit more!

Recovering well now. Rides to work on his new Fatboy, but walks in with a cane!

Damn!!! Firebeef. I watched that Myth Buster show last night. They wanted to recreate an old myth type happening from here in AZ a few decades ago. Where a retired Air force sergeant slapped a JADO on his 67 Impala, lost it and flew into some hill. The myth buster guys looked high and low for that '67 Impala. Thing is, it was the 60's. Not to mention destroying your home.

Sounds like a well off 'previous occupant'. He could afford Sterno and Ripple.

18D on ODA 572, A/3/5 SFG (Ft. Bragg) '87-'90.

Couldn't hack it as an NCO, so I went Warrant as a PA, then slipped further down the slope when we all got Comissioned.

PA for 2/10 SFG '96-'99. Incredible group of guys.

Retired in '02. Happily working 2-3 days per week solo in a Rural Hospital ER. Sounds good, except they're 24hr shifts... Money's good, anyway.
