Actually its quieter now. But it's about half the mileage.

I'm wondering about that, but it's a high flow cat.

Good morning Oregon and everyone everywhere else. 49.9 and overcast. Supposed to possibly see the sun around 10.
Get to go to court on suspect #2 in the Arson, Fraud-Theft, Conspiracy case this morning at 10:30. Should be fairly short and simple. He's changing his plea to guilty and going to be sentenced today.

Good afternoon Oregon and everyone everywhere else. Made it home from town and court. Went about as I expected. They are holding off sentencing until after all conditions and testimony related to his reduction in sentence as a part of the plea deal are completed. If he falls short in any part of the agreement, including testifying against the "torch", the judge has promised him that his gavel will make Thor's hammer seem like a kids toy in a kindergarten classrooms toy box.

keepsgoing4evr is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.

Oh and here's the rocker switch I got in the truck. Had to shave a little plastic to square up the holes. But it looks good and functions properly!

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.
That's pretty killer Seabiscuit! I definitely feel lucky to be in of the last guys to load up some AIM-54's on the Tom! We had several live shoots from the CALA in Oceana. And once in Fallon before deployment. We did load a few after 9/11 out there but if I remember correctly they brought them back. Mostly just GBU's and AIM-9 all day every day. I don't miss cranking those weapons rails on the Phoenix haha. After we got the super hornets we loaded some SLAM-ER in school when we had to qual for the new bird. I bet that was some crazy footage you had in that camera! We a few close ones but never on our birds. Our sister squadron, VFA-41 Black Aces, has two jets go canopy to canopy out in Lemoore during some maneuvers. Sad deal. They had the 2 seaters and the nobody made it unfortunately. It's a dangerous job. I never got to fly in anything smaller than a DC9 going from base to base. I imagine you have tons of stories being involved in weapons testing! Hope everyone is having a great week! We're out in Lincoln City. Just got off the beach and in the hotel room. Have a fantastic day tomorrow folks!
