I was in RVAH3 in 1971. I worked PP Shop for a while then went to the line as a Plane Captain. Ed Trawick was the E6 in the line shack. I remember he loved to listen to Tammy Wynette, he had a bunch of her 8 track tapes. If I remember correctly, he was the guy who got in a fight in a bar and he claimed "some hippie" bit part of his ear off. I remember that scene in the hanger and I remember the step van, I think we used it in the line shack. Sometime in early 1972 I went to RVAH14 then off to a MED cruise in the JFK. Fun Times....

I think it was a TA-4 ( 2 seater) and only the RAG had one...same with the A-3...it was for navigator  (B/N) training and hauling Coors beer back from Colorado..ha. I can't remember about the step van, but I do remember the gray pickup truck that used to deliver the sentries to their watch stations...it sure was quiet at night

You know, you're absolutely right...I remember that the doors to 3s hanger ran perpendicular to the runway...this must have been from my "real" squadron...RVAH-6...which was, as I remember...waaaaay down the ramp from RVAH-3

My back was to the runway when I made this photo

It's all in there. This is a "solarized" print ( I fancied myself as a photog ) taken from out on the ramp at night looking in. If that's you snoozing in there, watch out for that chubby little shite with the gold bars and the pencil mustasche....he's gonna write you up!
