Feathered gazelle goofball breaks and fixes airplanes
« on: November 01, 2017, 12:45:27 pm »
I also doodle furry things and robots in my free time. I just happened to be gliding by this forum and wanted to say hello.

I'm a military aircraft mechanic with a few odd quirks, and interest in the furry fandom happens to be one of them. My character is a gazelle with some bird traits, such as feathers and talons. I enjoy running and exploring, so I think the character suits me well.

Gaming and drawing are my other two favorite things to do when I get time to do them.

I have yet to fully understand the furry community, but I hope it makes more sense to me as I get more involved.

So, hey everyone!

Airplanes! Someone said airplanes! I heard 'airplanes'!!

Welcome!! The fandom will make more and more sense to you the more you explore. I don't think there is any 'fully understanding' the community, only figuring out what it has to offer and what to make of it for yourself.

Here's a short, heh, "Briefing" on the forums. (...ew, now I have a bad taste in my mouth from saying that word :p).

Please don't loose this, otherwise we'll all have to FOD walk for it. ;)

Air Force, C-130H, and 2A6X4, AKA Fuel Cell. I've also worked on B-52's in North Dakota. It's cool to see someone else on here that's familiar with the aircraft world. :)

I appreciate the warm welcomes, and I hope to get to know more about everyone here!

You and me both. We had a BUFF visit Oshkosh while I was there visiting my parents. It's a really cool, really big bird. And no longer in ND? Why not Minot ?(I already know freezin's the reason). I ended up working in fuel tanks on E8C's replacing spar chords and wing planks as a heavy structures mech. It paid pretty good as a civilian, but I don't envy you in the least bit. I'm lucky to have stayed out of tanks everywhere else.

And aren't they retiring those 'H' models?

We still have H models here in Minneapolis, but it would be nice to get the newer J's. I drove down to Little Rock AFB recently and it was cool to see the J-mods they had there. I don't miss active duty fuels too much, now that I'm an Air Reserve Tech (ART).

The Hercs are definitely better to work on than the BUFFs were for fuel work.
