First Flight

Any of you flyboys out there remember your first flight? Mine was with vt-7 in the back seat of a t2c. After weeks of training in pensacola in the pressure chamber, and ejection seat and  all the class work I finally was scheduled for my first flight.I really felt cool in my new  flight suit legs wrapped with a g suit and my shineing new helmet.Take off was an experience of a lifetime.No one had bothered to tell me that it was a prestige thing for the pilot to make sure your first flight…

I read a book by that title by G Gordan Liddy. What's changed since you were a kid. Gun control, Prayer in school, Smoking,  Political correctness, Moral leadership, Taxes. Just to name a few. I know I don't feel the same freedoms I did as a kid. How bout you?

Gerald,  I remember Hartig but I don't know if I remember him from VP 66 or Rota there in Atlanta. I was a SAR and worked with some great Sailors and Marines out of the airframes shop. We worked on just about any aircraft. I don't remember anyone in the picture though. Were they all TARS. I managed to serve 14 years before a stroke ended my military career.

Gerald:  Thanks much for the welcome aboard.   If you are a Blue Angel fan you'll enjoy my book, which gives an insider's view to the operations of the Navy's Flight Demonstration Squadron.   Total proceeds of the book go to support our wounded warriors through the Fisher House Foundation charity.   Learn more at www.gomynavy.com.   Thanks again shipmate!
