      There's never enough time to do it right, but always enough time to do it over. I learnt that in a shop that was bidding time and materials.

        I'd need a government contact and a few Haas machines and a few employees to replace my current income. Luckily cargo is booming right now.

          Coulda fooled me, been waiting since Apr 7 for some inserts from Banggood. Not that it matters anymore, the holders don't fit my new/old 4-way post. So I'll stick with my HSS collection for now.

            All I've been flying in from China is medical supplies, 200,000 lbs of it at a time.

              RB, is that a one hop flight these days, for a 747? Where do you land in the U.S.?

              Years ago I flew non-stop from Guam to Omaha, NE, but we had to get refueled over Hawaii. Forgotten whether that was a C-5 or C-141.

                We stay in Incheon, South Korea. Quick flight to Shanghai or another city. Pick up cargo and fuel, and go to Anchorage. Anchorage is the busiest airport in the world at the moment. 2.5 hour flight to China? Then about 10 hours to Anchorage?
                Couple of days I am flying non-stop from Cincinnati to Incheon, about 15 hours in the air. 350,000 pounds of fuel about, and usually empty with cargo. I know Connie isn't paying for that!!!

                  c-5 or 141 to a 747?

                  He said 359K fuel load for the heavy

                  I dont know the fuel load of those two. They will have a stream line tanker in the area anyway.
