IIRC, Crown Royal! The aircraft dropped a banner, which I still have, CDB, Camp Dirt Bag, a newspaper with the headlines, "Gaddafi is Dead", it was the morning of the NTC job, a few large bottles of liquor and a BUNCH of small bottles on parachutes. Kinda never found out where all the smallies went.....JACOB and cohorts! The video is of the last one I did. Went from a group of 4 or 5 to around 100 spanning 7 to 10 years, including MCLB Armorers from Barstow or Pendleton, don't remember, this one is from 10 years ago. Good times! The guy on the left in the YT thing above STILL wear overalls! The guy in front looks the same, but older, like us all......well, except me!

I have stories!

edit,
Maybe Chaves Regal.....again, a while ago! Good to see these again, I subscribe to The Recorder, He is a good friend of mine.

Doing Good. Still Moving America on the RR. I See JTD every now and then at work. Haven't done anything or gone anywhere with him for a few years now, and that's getting old. When the weather cools down, need to change that.
My # & email is the same.

Recently, got to deliver 5 Train loads with these things on them....I was waiting for one to fall off in the bushes, but none of them did.

Nothing to say but WOW.

Okay, something else:
I too would be thrilled to have just about ANY of those toys fall off in the bushes near my place! I even have a really nice grade crossing about a thousand yards up the road. Two tracks and a really nice spur that the concrete plant uses to receive pot ash cars. If you happen to be passing by :cool: . Never has happened before though. Not waiting on or expecting one :-(
