All our AMC carriers seem to be furloughing (Kalitta, Evergreen and Atlas rumored) while others like Tradewinds and Gemini went under. I've been spending a lot of time around Charleston AFB and have spoken with some customs agents. The bulk of the freight out of there lately is being flown by freakin' Russians and their Antonovs. Un F'in believable what the hell.... our own carriers are dying over here and our military cargo payments are going to Russians!! When I got hired by an AMC carrier I was told I had to have a US passport!!! I'm sure all the Antonov crews are true blue American patriots with US passports......not!! Anyone who has been furloughed should be pretty pissed. I have already sent a letter to my Congressman (don't know what good it will do). Those airplanes sholudn;t be on a USAF base let alone flying our cargo. One customs agent I spoke with was astounded that this was going on.
