This is the important part: “Let me be clear that the fact that we love you and will stand by you does not in any way mean we will stand by while you do things that you know aren’t good for you.”
I know this plane! I met the crew chief at the old Merced Air Force Base whilst wandering around with my camera. Have a few pics of her in the hangar getting worked on. He allowed me to roam around inside. Great plane!
#’s 96, 94, 89, 85, 83, 79, 75, 73, 69, 40, 38, 17, 16, 14, 8, and #1. Lot of #Lockheed birds in there.
Bahahaha! We had a bidet when we lived in Riyadh, KSA. We asked my Dad what it was for. He hemmed and said it was a place to wash your feet. My Mom later informed us of its intended use!
When Israeli soldiers strap on suicide bomb vests and blow up little children I’ll complain, until then, Israel has a right to defend itself even when Hamas does something as despicable as plant weapons in mosques and amongst civilians. Personal, I wish Israel would use an Iron Hammer instead of an Iron Dome to deal with Hamas but that’s me…
The model for this ad was an actual US Air Force C-130A (Air Force serial number 54-1622) and was the ninth Hercules to come off the Lockheed-Georgia Company assembly line in Marietta, Georgia. The real version of this aircraft was delivered to the 314th Troop Carrier Wing at Sewart AFB, Tennessee, in 1957. It was later modified into an NC-130 testbed. [Lockheed photo]
As a Lockheed Brat…this warms my heart!
"A subjective quest for emotional fulfillment subverts Christian worship, by focusing on how worship makes a person feel, and by encouraging worship schemes that arise from individual self-expression rather than the lived history of the people of God down through the ages. “Man fully alive” is at the heart of that most baneful of cultural deviations, the circus known as “the contemporary worship service.” - Fr. Patrick Reardon
I wish more people would pay attention to the words being said than the exploitation of emotions. Context people. Context. Just because I say I like bacon doesn’t mean I hate pigs.
