Any Members a C130/17/5 crew in Afghan?

Guys,

I have been flying Helicopters over in Afghanistan on and off since 2002. I am looking at finishing my 4th year and maybe final rotation this Dec... I have my own D110 Crew Cab here in Kandahar (yes, Pink slip in hand), ... that I'd sure like to get back to Ft Bragg, NC... or any place in the US for that matter.

Any help...??

Scotty

That's only slightly illegal and against DoD and USAF policy. Good luck finding anyone willing to risk their career for that.

Put it in a container and send it through Norfolk.

Get it up to the Russia and with some bribes get it on a Antonov An-225
Seriously, you could definately get it out via container. I wonder if India would the best bet.

If its a truck that can come back legaly wont the military ship it back as hhg ? Recently was involved with a 1986 out of Bahrain that shipped that way.

I have some inside knowledge on this topic, due to cut backs the crew of a C130 have one pallet or less space for anything personal. Even in the more free wheeling days you couldn't get a personal vehicle on a C130 unless you had stars on your shoulders. So mountain bike, cases of German beer, something like that is possible if you're buddies with the crew but a 110 isn't going to work out. Good luck finding a shipper to get it home, sounds like a good one.

Greetings-

I'm a C-130 pilot with 8 deployments under my belt and can't remember how many times I wanted to throw a 110 in the back on the way home. Unfortunately we also have to clear customs on US soil. Pretty much no way to make it happen although I wish i could help...
Regards,
Jay

Thanks for all the input guys... I agree with the suggestions and info above. Bottom line, I am sourcing a contract shipper for it. Prices are all over the place here... which means I have not found the "right" person to deal with yet.

As for USAF having load space... Customs is the #1 issue. It all gets looked at and checked, so I know off the bat, if it can't go home... don't send it or waste the time to.... that said, I was merely looking for some crew ideas and thought with this thread, as it is a unpublished grey area in the "free space" asset usage back and forth. Never want to get anyone in trouble, no way... just wondering on options...

Thanks again all... contract container is the best bet.... FYI, it was a NATO D110 crew cab, that went to the scrap yard. Taken off the books and I was able to purchase it as rolling scrap (interrior gutted) from the DRMO as such. Driveline is excellent and a LHD. Hate to leave it here... as it runs great, and has a cool history to it. Not sure what year yet... researching that. Worst case, the Drive line, LHD assy, and a few other parts will be stripped at some point.

I know of guys mailing/shipping stuff back. Post and DRL(?) were good about stuff as long as you made weight and size. Might want to look into units going back with space in their containers.

Already have some back up plans for key parts (300tdi, Trany & Xfer, LHD setup, ec...) to go home with rotating units... Was just sooting for the top with the whole thing. Never know till you ask....
