I would have loved to have been there. Was stationed at NAS Oceana in 1970. I was attached to VA-42. We trained A-6 pilots and BN's. Many were stationed on carriers off the coast of Viet Nam, some did not come home. It was a great experience for me to have known some of them.

Thanks for sharing, SkyChimp.

I think I fly waaaaay too much now. I actually knew what the two planes were from their cockpit shots and each was confirmed as I clicked on the next pic right after each. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif

its coming up this weekend again.

and for those who live in the Virginia Beach area...

The reservist that fly the C5 know how to have a good time...

when i was working on base at the AIMD (this was the 2002 show)and vouluntold to work FOD walkdown (in an air show that means youre picking up TONS and TONS of trash off the flight line)the last night of the show after most all the aircraft had left, the C5 crew hosted a BADASS keg party.

I mean they leveled the nose bay as a stage for a 70s style funk and soul band (that let the brave come up to play their instruments a couple of times) and had bought a rental car full of kegs.

it was one of the best times i had had on that base and i was completely blown away at how cool the air force reservists guys were (theyre generaly more uptight(no offence)).

but anyway it sould be a good time even w/out the keg party
