AMS-3 PLANE CAPTAIN OF MH-143198
Stationed at Jacksonville Florida from 1966 - 1970
This site was built because of my many
good memories of VW-4, the Connies, and the many squadron members that I met and am slowly
getting back in touch with again.
Every year when the Hurricane Season starts it seems I have to look at my old photographs and facts of the Squadron and Hurricane's. I thought that I would share them with anybody who is interested .
Do we all remember when?
How we had to push open and close the huge hanger doors .
I think they use electric one's now. How about the F.O.D. walk downs?
Now I understand how important they were.
And the Wednesday morning inspection's. I hated them, but I figured out how to get an
old dirty pair of boondockers to shine in an instant. Try using some gloss black spray paint on them just before inspection, and hope
the inspection team doesn't decide to touch them.
Don't let this picture fool you
(I was really a Plane Captain, not a Radio Man).
