I got a bad impression of the F-111, but we were there when it was first introduced and there were a lot bugs that had to be ironed out as with any new high tech machine. They finally realized that it wouldn't work on Aircraft Carriers so the Navy never got any of them. Continue

I'm very pleased to see our (heavy) community growing! We are a unique group in Naval Aviation in the number of squadrons and stations that once comprised the reconnaissance heavy attack community and our aircraft. Our Vigilantes are gone, but not forgotten! Our history goes farther back than the Vigilante. We must also remember the days before we "took pictures". The days of the Whale and the Savage. We have a long and glorious history to be proud of!

I remember it as a day almost as long-anticipated as Christmas. This was helped along by the appearance… Continue

I originally moved this to the Politics Forum. I do not want to limit free speach so I put it back with apologies to Mike Coleman.
So, this is where I get to post some of the information I come accross that affects us all. The Terrorists in Washington are holding a gun to our head, while bankrupting this once proud and noble country. Where the death of Michael Jackson can for almost a week take every bit of air time discussing his 'life', but can't give 10 seconds… Continue
