Pretty good two-ship for out-of-practice TAC airlifters, ferrying home, September 1971.  Nothing more exhilarating that flying very loose finger tip at 120 knots. Took maybe all of 10 seconds to regain our former T-38 skill and finesse.  We had been briefed prior to leaving Cam Ranh that such activities were prohibited; sort of like being told to stop dropping into Phan Thiet to pick up lobsters and to quit dancing on stage with the USO performers at the Bien Hoa officers club.  Oh to be young again, 10 feet tall, and bullet proof.
