Navy Pic of the Day

I saw this picture over at Murdoc online, and decided to, er.... "borrow" it. This EA6-B Prowler belongs to VAQ-138, based (last I looked) at NAS Whidbey, right here on Whidbey Island.

The CWSA range is just off the North end of OLF (Out Lying Field) Coupeville and we get to watch these guys practice touch and go's (more like "Smash and Dash, actually) there all the time. In fact, when they are on short final from the North we have to go "Cold Range" while they go by.

I suggested that we should just send the Navy a bill for our ammo, and tell them we are providing realistic training fire!

No one else seemed to like the idea, though.............

One of those flew over here this week! (We get lots of odd ones). An F-4 flew over the day before (probably from Holomon NM where the Luftwaffe trains).

Those have been in "inventory" a long time. They had them at N.A.S. Whidbey when I exited there in January, 1968..
