I for one watch a lot of Youtubers and as always it's like (buyer beware) or in a bloggers case (read between the lines). I always come away having learned a bit more and that I feel is how it should be. Slightly off topic, I never understand how 20 to 30 watchers are getting Trolled by the same 4 or 5 watchers. Expat community should be about pulling together. I for one would be hesitant to Vlog due to all the wing-nut Trolls. I commend those that say it the way it is, as they alone experience it in the Philippines.
In the USAF (in my day--perhaps things have changed) a person could be court marshaled, put out of the service and possibly sent to Leavenworth for a mistake like this.
In the USAF any type of aircraft maintenance is covered in great detail in Tech Orders (TO's) that lead you step by step through the job. If you don't follow the TOs step by step and a screw up happens then you have basically violated a direct order something that the military frowns upon.
Could be a series of mistakes here---why didn't the WOW switch disable the weapons system? Why didn't a weapons crew safed the cannon right after the kite landed? Perhaps the maintenance person wasn't trained/qualified to do the work to begin with? Any skilled NCOs around? Too many questions.
Whoa... Has a wife in China and so I wonder if he had to divorce her or give up? Is it just me but does Terrance sort of have a European accent? I watched a few of his videos and he doesn't seem American and this shortcut above lists him out of Florida.

I am curious about which Chicago "burb" you lived in. I lived in Orland Park, IL from '71 - '78. I've been in Madison, WI for the past 5 years, going back to the Philippines next year, probably in June.
