Then one day one of the guys snapped this photo of an unknown unit’s helicopter and to the best of my memory, it went something like this: So this Colonel says to the tower: Perhaps you don’t realize you’re talking to a Colonel. I don’t care if you think I’m too close to the runway. I’ll park where I damn well please.” “Roger that, Sir. Air Force Cargomaster you are cleared for landing.......”
