Anyone ever experienced an "airpocket" Neither had I until one day, as a passenger in c-124, at 30,000 ft over Texas on a clear day.... whoosss we dropped 10,000 ft, settled for an instant...then dropped another 10,000 ft!!! The pilot got on the radio .and said he was laying on the ceiling! Wheee, real excitement for a "newby" in the USAF!!!

Texas is where my father was based. There is a fascinating story about my mother volunteering for civilian support of the unit, traveling to Texas, being helped by a soldier named Victor on the train and my father sending her yellow roses every year signed "Victor" until the year he passed.
