He had been around for a very long time. He knew the hanger inside out.

He had served us well. He had done several rescue trips, hauled food to disaster-stricken places, brought disaster survivors home, and so much more. We are grateful for his service.

But just like everyone else, there is a time to rest. Today was his time.

He needed to rest and look on as others did what he once did. I know it is somewhat daunting to just sit there and look. But it is better than getting wasted out there.

Carl had developed several mechanical issues from the constant trips that he made. The list now seemed endless so we decided to pack him.

I will surely miss his comfortable space and companionship on those long and gruelling trips. But I am glad that he is still here. At least I shall be able to look at his and reminisce.
