I never realized that's where that sign came from....I ran through (Ellison field) during flight school quite a bit...pretty neat to see they still have the old hangars around.
Cobras also; not to mention we'll still be flying all of the above for the next 20+ years (with the exception of Phrogs).Weird...42 years later, and the Marine Corps is still flying Jet Rangers, Hueys, Phrogs and Stallions.
Unfortunately for those of us Marines who don't enjoy having some portion of our head shaved to a zero, they have.Don't know if your grooming regs have actually changed since then...but the grooming "culture" certainly has.
I don't know. I had a family friend who was a Major in the late 80s/early 90s and in the pictures on his wall he had a full civilian-esque haircut for his uniform photos. He said that was common at the time.It had to be before that. I'm thinking late 70s or early 80s.

Are y'all referring to the arched signage in the screen shot above? If so, I'm not sure if it was at HT-8 when I was a student there in '87-'88 under CDR Mader. It may very well have been at HT-8...that was quite a while ago and I was a bit of a mess having received 3 downs while in VT-2...so I may have been distracted and not noticed the signage.It was there when I was a student back in the early 90's...
