PO3 Woods. She cannot open the hatch to the gun mount, nor hump a box of 20 MM ammo. Go figure.

All those pictures make the boat look big.

From 300 ft pattern altitude and 1/2 mile back , it looks like a postage stamp.

Happily today there are autopilots.

THD,

Yep. F4J were in my dads time for sure but I remember seeing F4S flying as late as 96-98? On the Midway.

Air Force guy may have lacked stones but he certainly had more common sense!

Awesome pictures. Thank you all for your service. Pop was a carrier pilot in Korea, mostly on the Antietam but he did stints on many others. My only claim to fame is about 6 nights on the Hornet in Alameda with the Cub Scouts. Keep the pictures coming.
