A fine looking group of distinguished gentlemen!
As always, the moustache plays. Well done.
From the March CNATRA Boat det to Jax on CVN-77.
Waiting to taxi across:
Fast Eddie for standing on?
Bolter, Bolter, Bolter...

I've flown 206 (the CONA P-3) what a turd....
Interesting pics but, what, where & why?
NAS Kingsville air show last weekend, it was refered to as the worlds smallest aircraft carrier landing. I believe he actually 3 pointed for a second before pulling up.
I don't think I've ever seen a carrier land before...
Nor I, but I am old enough to remember the Battlewagon Mighty Mo 'landing' on a shoal heading into port in Norfolk in 1950. Took "All the King's horses & all the King's men", to get her afloat again!
re: big mo.
the reason you can't be skipper more than 3 years is that nobody can stay awake any longer than that.
BzB - ouch...that'll hurt the career track
flaps - that's funny right there...
Why is the Intruder pilot checking out the S-3 pilot's ass?
'Cause he's tired of his B/N's ass...
A few from the 70th Anniversary of the Doolittle Raiders. Festivities included a 20 aircraft B-25 flyby.

Phantom: one of the phew jets that could phly phormation with the phreakishly phast Blackbird...
A little quick math says that in this configuration this beauty could spit out as many as 6,600 50 cal rounds per min. What a nightmare for the bad guys on the ground.

In another famous SR-71 story, Los Angeles Center reported receiving a request for clearance to FL 600 (60,000ft). The incredulous controller, with some disdain in his voice, asked, “How do you plan to get up to 60,000 feet? The pilot (obviously a sled driver), responded, “We don’t plan to go up to it; we plan to go down to it.” He was cleared.
Often while on liberty trips down to Naha I'd see this bird taking off and landing at Kadina. The Habu was a wicked looking thing.
