“It’s bad.”

Two simple messages, delivered to pilots wearing different uniforms, perhaps 1,000 miles apart. That they were delivered on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001, seared them into the memories of the men who received them.

Lt. Col. Rolf Mammen and Lt. Col. Doug Champagne, both pilots at Selfridge Air National Guard Base, heard those messages on that chaotic morning when America came under attack. Both men were flying that day – Champagne in an F-16 Falcon in Michigan, and Mammen in an United Airlines airliner, over the Atlantic Ocean on a trip from London to New York City’s JFK Airport. The two shared their memories of that day during a June 21 luncheon meeting of the Selfridge Base Community Council, a civic organization that promotes partnership between the base and the community.
