"Merrenden HQ, MacGregor. We have a Herc on the ground up Foreston way, we need to resupply units asap, low res air drop on my location."

<<Lieutenant Stephen Lawrence, RAF, Air Traffic Controller>>

"Roger, MacGregor. One on the way."

"Herky Jerky this is ATC Foreston. We need a low res airdrop these coordinates." He read out a string of number.

<<Captain Janine Stringfellow, USAF, Commander, C-130 'Herky Jerky'>>

"Roger, Foreston ATC. On the way in five minutes. ETA ten minutes."

"Roger that. MacGregor, one bird on the way. ETA ten minutes."

<<Lieutenant Stephen Lawrence, RAF, Air Traffic Controller>>

Stephen watched as the cargo finished the loading and ordered the ramp raised. As soon as they got it it closed the aircraft, which had it's engines revving up to speed, taxied to the runway, ready for takeoff.

<<Captain Janine Stringfellow, USAF, Commander, C-130 'Herky Jerky'>>

Janine called the tower to ask for clearance. "Tower this is Herky Jerky, request permission for take off." "Roger, Herky Jerky, you have permission for takeoff. Wind is five kilometers per hour from the west. Good luck." "Roger, tower."

With that the cargo hauler was quickly airborne in the direction of the front.

Aurore had made a quick pit stop to the locker room to get a couple of things, but was otherwise already as geared up as she was going to get. She was already in her flight suit, adorned on the left shoulder with the Alpha Site unit patch and on the right was the French flag patch and the top-down silhouette of an F-302 in the tricolor. In a black polymer shoulder rig was her PAMAS G1, the French copy of the Beretta 92FS, and she donned her black aviator sunglasses as she stepped onto the flight line. However, she now had the rest of her flight gear, including her flight helmet.

It had been painted and finished by a friend of hers from EC 2/5 before she left for F-302 training. The front was an elaborate shark face, complete with eyes and rows of teeth around the front opening. The back, however, was black and had a battle worn French flag waving in the wind painted on the back. Above it, in white cursive, read "VIVE LA FRANCE" and below, also in white cursive, "AURORE 'PHENIX' BERGE - Armée de l'Air". The whole thing was a work of art and Aurore had worn it since her first day of familiarization with the F-302.

The ground crews were busy preparing the -401s for launch, and it was a familiar sight to see the organization of a well oiled machine at work. She confidently crossed the hangar towards Hatfield's -401, conducting a walk around of the aircraft out of habit.

>>From Briefing Room via Quarters>>

 Teyla, Kim and Bobbie were not far behind Aurore in arriving, the little underground buggies were immensely efficient for getting around on such a large base as this was. All three women had stopped by their rooms to change and freshen up, grab whatever gear was necessary and for Bobbie that included snacks, lots of them because she was going to be sure there was enough for everyone. Those snacks primarily were made up of high energy bars, the very thing they'd all need soon.

 Traditionally the 401's naming protocol was that the A models carried the names of birds of prey, the heavier B models weather events. In some cases you might see cases of Skua 1 and Skua II and so on; the only exception to this rule was the base CO's personal 401, an A model which in this case belonged to the former Commander Lucille Chalmers, it had been named the 'Iron Maiden' after her and unlike all the other 401's carried an all black paint scheme. This was the aircraft Teyla was flying, indeed it had been the same one that carried the three friends around for the last few days; the 401 of Bobbie's choice was 'Merlin', it had recently been repainted in the new two tone grey rather than the multi-cam colours of the first production models.

 Bobbie saw the ground crews finishing up with the bomb loads as she stepped off the buggy, she caught sight of Aurore doing a visual check of the bird which was heartening to say the least. Most usually left that up to the pilot. With helmet under her elbow she walked across the hardstand to the 401, doing her own quick check with eyeball MKI without impinging on the Commandant's work. Satisfied all was ready, she waited for Teya and Kim before they could commence today's mission. "We're as ready as we'll ever be I guess." She said to Aurore as she caught up to her. "It'll take a few moments for our soldier boys and girls to arrive. Is there anything you need to get caught up with on procedures for the 401 before we leave?"

It hadn't taken Kim long to change and grab her gear.  Although she wondered how long they would be out this time.  Hopefully they could put a stop to the Forerunners before they were all running on empty.  She was sure the soldiers on the field were just as worn and ragged as the three of them were. 

Teya grabbed the essentials before walking out with Kim ande Bobbie.  She was glad to see Aurore there and checking things out.  She ran a hand through her hair, blowing out a breath.  "How are things looking?" she asked Aurore.  It was good to see the Iron Maiden again. 

Kim walked up to her friend.  "Well, looks like we're headed out again," she said, trying to stay cheery.  It wouldn't do any good to fall into a depressed mood after all.

"No, I'm still fairly up to speed on these craft, I'm just only rated as crew, not as a pilot. Not to say I can't fly, I just don't have enough hours to qualify. But I admit I'm in no hurry, I'm more attracted to fighters." Aurore said with a smile, "I still maintain nothing is more pure than flying an Alpha Jet over the Alps. Such a simple machine, it's just you and the aircraft."

"Everything appears to be in order, but I'm noticing signs of fatigue among the crews on all fronts. I'm not sure why if we have so many forces present...I suspect I'm going to have to raise these issues once this is resolved." Aurore said to Teya. That wasn't going to be something she was looking forward to.

As she said this, SG-7 made their way up to the -401s, now all clad in Multicam fatigues and armed to the teeth.

"Major. SG-7 is ready to go, just say the word." Brian said.

 The last to arrive was the MCU with Josile leading them merely for familiarity. It had taken 3 buggies to deliver them and all their gear to the hangar area with the crew Chief WO TJ Meyer directing the MCU to Bobbie's 401-'Merlin', Josile was to accompany SG7 with Commander Renner. With Lt Spencer Josile had been outfitted in the standard SGC day cams, which was similar to the US Marines Woodland variant. She was equipped with a side arm of course, standard issue and the main weapon chosen for her was the Steyr F88 as issued to the Australian forces on the Alpha site. This was done for its pure simplicity of operation, Josile having used it once or twice before when she was being familarized with her Earthern allies some three years ago.

 Bobbie watched as the MCU filed aboard Merlin, she half grinned to herself and Aurore, knowing that those twenty Marines were going to baby sitting 40 something JDAM bombs in their cylindrical racks lining the center of the rear floor. The MCU would be sitting either side 'Herc' style. But then SG7 wasn't going to be in a much different environment, with both 401's carrying identical loads, there would simply be less humans in the 'Iron Maiden'. Then there was Taer and his team, they'd be riding with SG7, still a lot less people.

 "We've been on basically twelve hour watches since the war began Major." She said to Aurore using the more familiar rank designation. "I think what you are seeing more than fatigue is possibly boredom. We've not won the war by a long shot, but we have worn the Forerunners down a lot so the 'waiting around for something to happen' syndrome is written in our expressions." There was something else for her to smile at, something Aurore might find amusing. Bobbie looked over at Kim and Teya when she mentioned the next little bit of useless information. "I saw a memo on Chief Sakai's desk the other day from the Supply officer back home. Apparently we have on the Alpha site consumed more coffee in a month of operation against our enemy, than the SGC has in an entire year."

 It was time to go now, TJ ushered everyone aboard their respective aircraft, Josile filed in behind SG7 to help fill up the seats of the Iron Maiden, the one and only 401 she had been in before. She was surprised just a little to see that she was wearing almost the same uniform as that team; the weapon though she carried being different to theirs. Josile waited respectfully back a little, not wanting to just rush in to take a seat; it wasn't shyness on her part, merely the way the Cavalieros were.

 Back at the Merlin, with Aurore and Kim, Bobbie watched the other teams board the Iron Maiden, she tried to stand on her toes to get a glimpse of Denis but couldn't find him with ground crews still milling about getting the birds unchocked. Four F302G's, the latest incarnation of that venerable aircraft would escort them as far as Forerunner airspace. From there they were on their own. "Its a weird mix to fly Major, in atmo along with take off and landing she flies much like a Harrier, a big fat one. In space, she flies almost as good as the 302, in some respects better, in other respects worse. Its a bundle that you learn to get used to. Nearly all our 302 pilots now have to acquire at least fifty hours on the 401."

 Teya and the Iron Maiden would lead out first, with Merlin right behind her. The 302's were already aloft, they'd rendezvous out over the sea. Bobbie climbed the side ladder, a feeling of heaviness on her heart. Not from anything in particular, just worry. They were going into uncharted waters so to speak, putting yet again lives at risk when they delivered the troops. Surely the Forerunners must realize by now futile their campaign was.

Taer - Marine Captain

Taer and the rest of his team caught up with the people in the surface hangars. They switched and geared up for another mission. It was probably going to be a workout for them. Taer heard they were going to be with SG7 for the ride, so they hopped on. Taking his seat by the rear guard, Taer waited for their ride to start.

Teya walked around the Iron Maiden.  Once she was content that all was in order she climbed aboard.  "Hopefully this will be the boost we all need," she commented.

Kim blew out a breath.  "I'm all for quiet and no wars but this is crazy.  I just want something to break," she grumbled, following Bobbie on board.

"I suppose so. I can't speak from experience, the closest I got to any of the fighting on Earth was Tajikistan, that's where we based from. Even still, it is not something I am happy with, even if I will have to endure being condescended to by whoever is in command of the forces here. Being a French fighter pilot will work against me, particularly if they are American." Aurore said, frowning slightly. She then looked to SG-7.

"Captain, Miss Josile is with your team, please ensure if there is anything she needs to be made aware of in your plans, fill her in." Aurore said, before pulling on her helmet and secured it into place.

"Fortune favors the bold, so let's be bold." Aurore added, before climbing up into the -401 through the side hatch.

"Roger that, ma'am." Brian handed over a gasmask, an American M50 type, as he had packed a spare. "Not sure if you've used one of these before. Part of our plan includes the use of tear gas, a non-lethal chemical irritant."

"What my friend means to say is that you really do not want to breathe this in.
 Your lungs will feel like they are on fire, as will your eyes. Useful if you need to deal with a particularly rambunctious group."
Denis said with a laugh as they then boarded the -401.

"I can help get you fitted before we get there, if you'd like." Astrid offered.
