Delta should do a better job dealing with their cargo. We make sure cargo aboard AF aircraft doesn't get messed up like this. Safety is a pretty big priority for us.

Interesting. Exactly how many cheetahs have you carried on that KC-10??

The type of cargo isn't the point. Safety is. It's always good to secure your cargo.

I am sure that the Cheetah was properly secured when she was accepted at her origin airport.

Who sez she didnt get hungry inflight. At least she didnt start eating airplane cargo hold sidewall and stuff - have seen that happen before, and it AINT pretty.

I was told there were organs for transplant onboard. Can you imagine?

"Bob, we aren't going to perform your heart transplant today. ... it seems it was eaten by a Cheetah en route from Portland."

Safety??? How safe was this? How much does a loose cheetah cost taxpayers? You should worry about your coffee serving skills.

2 BILLION dollar aircraft lost in seconds...any Delta loss, you incorrectly rant about, pales in comparison! Stupid active duty desk puke! Maybe someday you'll learn (and actually get) to fly. Doubt the ANG will take you, at least my(former) unit won't, we don't hire idiots.

Maybe you forgot about this incident.....:rolleyes:

The 2007 United States Air Force nuclear weapons incident occurred at Minot Air Force Base and Barksdale Air Force Base on August 29–30, 2007. Six AGM-129 ACMcruise missiles, each loaded with a W80-1variable yieldnuclear warhead, were mistakenly loaded on a United States Air Force (USAF) B-52Hheavy bomber at Minot and transported to Barksdale. The nuclear warheads in the missiles were supposed to have been removed before taking the missiles from their storage bunker. The missiles with the nuclear warheads were not reported missing and remained mounted to the aircraft at both Minot and Barksdale for a period of 36 hours. (link here)
