This week-end Reese and I visited My nephew Kurt in
the northeren Michigan town of Oscoda. It's the location
of the former Wurtzsmith USAFB. The base is mostly rented
to a wealthy businessman named Konnie Kalitta who owns an
'international air cargo transportation company called Kalitta Air.
For the most part Konnie buys up used 747's from around the world,
he then refurbishes them into air cargo transports. The huge facility
is also a place where privately owned jets can get emergency repairs.
My nephew works as a sheet metal repairman there and on Saturday
he got me and Reese admitted.
The huge DC-10 that they are standing in front of, recently has been
in Colorado, where it has been fighting the wild forrest fires. The tank
on the bottom of the huge jet holds 12,000 gallons of water and a chemical
fire retardent additive. The disassembled 747 in the one shot has been
scavenged so that other jets may continue flying....
The big white 757 is owned by a religious group. It has 2 stories, three
baths, a full kitchen, and a dining room.....No Comment!!
I haven't worked since April due to my...."Condition"
Tomorrow, I'm Back To Work...Galen Haynes:Biker Businessman!!!
