RVAH-6 on the Ranger 1968 (not 1964 as described in the youtube description)
GEE , What a great video ! AH the good old days ! Fresh air / sunshine , open chow hall , watching the AQ'S busting their hump ! Cat shots ,wire catching landings all day , some times nite ops ! What a life , ask a Army , Air Force , Marine , Coast Guard , guy if they had a adrenal rush like that ? Of coarse they would say they had there own thing going ! But we were the best !
RVAH 5 was on the Ranger in 1964 to 1965, RVAH 9 in 1965 to Aug 27th 1966
Has to be 68'..VAH 6 Flew A3B tankers till after the 64'Med Cruise w/USS FORRESTAL..I shipped out of VAH 6 in 64' while they were still in the MED.VAH 6 came back from the cruise and switched to VIggies after that
Love flight ops in the Med!!! In 1968, while you were having fun aboard ship, I was having fun in "Nam with PBR's and SEALS!
