|The Air Force does fly Army on occassion|
During the passenger brief we found that only about three of four of them had ridden in a Blackhawk before, so we made sure to give them a good weapons procedures brief. They weren't carrying ammo this time around, but next time they may be so we made sure their weapons handling was up to speed. This wasn't a slight to the AF, we don't trust Army guys either when weapons are involved. These guys maintained excellent gun handling throughout, I'd have no problems flying with them "hot."
