Hear about one of my absolute worst best missions. Christmas Eve 2011, Afghanistan divert, emergency engine shutdown, flying on 3 engines over Afghanistan, “no reservation” at the INN of Kandahar, no load, no mission, flying empty….. and…………VINDICATION! Also a fantastic Christmas meal with my crew!
