Lost fuel can

Thoroughly enjoyed the October issue and the first hand accounts of Howie and Art's adventure.  One minor correction to Art's account as to that being the first time that an A-5 lost the aft can.  In reviewing my log book I find that on 19 July 1970, flying 156617 off of the USS Saratoga with RVAH-9, I dropped the number two can on the starboard cat with a resultant fire onboard.  Fortunately, my aircraft did not ignite.  Dumped fuel and recovered onboard after .3 flight time.  The event was…See More

Rich: Thank you for sharing the final version of Mads' work for you and Tom. I had been wanting to get a piece of Vigi art for years but until I saw yours I had not really be moved into action.
