Default Airman missing in the gulf

https://www.foxnews.com/us/air-force...c-130-aircraft

Hey last night there was a huge search out in the Gulf south of Navarre beach looking for a missing airman from Hurlburt. Doesnít look like he has been found yet, if you happen to be out that way keep an eye out. Havenít been seeing as many aircraft this morning.

I saw that on the news this morning. When they said he 'fell" out of the plane, the 1st thing that came in my mind was, he was probably pushed out. Let's hope that's not the case. I know his chances are very slim, but I pray they find him alive and okay.

They jump into the sound right behind my house. I'm guessing the jumpmaster stepped too far out on the ramp as it circled over the Gulf and the slipstream got him. The reports are that his chute opened and he was last seen, treading water.

It is a damn shame how many good people are lost in training. I had 4 friends killed in the Army, training. Prayers sent.

No life is worth losing but that's like saying okay we won't ground fight anymore. Cost and affect. Got the T-shirt.
