Hey Nuke! I was an aviation ordnanceman. Had the absolute pleasure of loading BB'S on the f-14D with the VF-14 tophatters, then with VFA-14 as we transitioned to the super hornets after our 9/11 deployment aboard the Enterprise. Did a deployment on the Nimitz in 03 and then took the Reagan from the East coast down around South America and back to San Diego. Finished up in VFA-122 in Lemoore, CA. Thank you for your service!!!

Say Rich, tell us about your Air Show out at the airport? Sounds rather exciting. At least it has the stick in the muds complaining.




Belated welcome aboard Jason. I'm not quite caught up, but getting close after spending a week in the mountains up at Detroit Lake.
USN here as well. F/E P3 Orion and P3 OMA Tech & QA (Airframes and Hydraulics). West Pac, SE Asia, Indian Ocean and Persian Gulf - and like Pat said, that was so long ago it almost seems like another life time.

Nestucca is the back yard, (depending on which direction you're looking in). What area in this part of the state do you take your boots off in?
Hi there Seabiscuit! I currently live in Beaverton. Have a beautiful young lady I've been with for the past 7 months (or 8? Ah crap good thing she doesn't get in here haha) that lives in McMinnville and teaches at the Dayton HS. As I'm taking time off work for a couple of months to recover from past and currently ongoing cancer treatments the last year or so, I've begun to spend quite a bit of time out on that river. She loves to fish and I've come to love photography. She has 2 kiddos that have me wrapped around their fingers so they live loading up the f150 and taking off on the weekends. I do live this beautiful state man! And thank you for your service! I definitely miss the flight deck and sending those big beautiful birds off the deck! Hope you all had a great weekend! I just finished up installing new window rocker switches in the f150. I gotta say, they look great! I wasn't going to say $100 for new or even $20 for online used or knockoffs lol. I'll try to get a pic on here tomorrow. I bypassed the GEM and dished my own wires. Inline 20A fuse. Works like a charm! Going to replace the door lock switches as well later on so everything matches. Taking time off is allowing me to get this old 97 where she needs to be!

Good afternoon Oregon and everyone everywhere else.

Getting ready to defy mother nature (massive cloud build up over the Coast range) and go out to put a new Sonar / Nav system in the boat. This will be a replacement to the rear mounted fishing station & a backup unit to the main cockpit unit. Should keep us covered. This unit, unlike the main station unit, talks to the American GPS as well as the Russian GPS constellations. So if the Rooskies shoot ours down, I still have theirs. If we shoot theirs down....I still have the US system. If we destroy each others, well, I still have the compass, providing everything isn't glowing in the dark by that point. This unit, like the main helm & cockpit station unit, has multiple conventional sonar freq's along with multiple freq's for down imaging and side scan.

Interesting Jason. I spent 15 months at Naval Weapons Testing / Pacific Missile Center in the 70's. I spent many hours in the air in the P3 Orion doing initial weapons testing (static, no warhead shots as well as war shots) with the Harpoon.
We were also working on the Phoenix and other wep systems for the F14A's. Myself and one other fellow got to fly in A-6's, F-4's, T/A 4's and even a Whale to take pictures of the Phoenix, Sidewinder and AIM shots when our commands 1 aircrew qualified photographer's mate was tied up on other "projects".
Never got to fly backseat in the Tomcat. They were new, too new, and they would only allow NATOPS qualified Pilots and RIO's in them.
One of our "O's", our Division Officer in Test Ops Control and Coordination Center, shot himself down on a Phoenix test shoot. He and his RIO successfully ejected (I was in the back seat of an F4 chase plane with a movie camera filming). When the Commander got back to the Office a few days later, he was not a happy camper, but did seem to have a good sense of humor about it.

Good evening Ford Fans.
Dodged the rain showers today.

I have to figure out what happened to the gas mileage for the Old Ford.

New exhaust sounds so good you can’t keep your foot out of it?
