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. :confused:


I thought if you got 3 downs.....you got your walking papers.....I was in VT-2 also....and had a blast, you must have blown a carb boot off!!....maybe more than once...

At the time when I had received the 3 downs in VT-2 (1987), the Navy still needed pilots...BADLY. I was at the tail end of a huge pilot push...thank GOD. I probably should have received my walking papers...but I was EXTREMELY insistent on staying and voiced it VERY LOUDLY to the review board.
