As an avaition ordnanceman aircrewman in VP 23, NAS Brunswick, Maine, from Apr.'72 thru Jan. '74, 152726, LJ 6, was my crew plane. It was known to have a crack of some sort in one of the wings (don't recall the details) and thus got limited use. It was also that plane that my PPC allowed me to get some left seat time in doing touch and go's in Sigonella, Sicily on 11 May 1973. On that 5.8 hour pilot training flight (bounce hop) we made a high speed pass (full power) at 200 feet by a Russian cruise ship sailing off Sicily in the Gulf of Catania. It was to our delight and their astonishment I'm sure. A photo of me in the left seat stands proudly on display in my den. I would love to sit in that seat one more time. I'm glad the "old girl" still has a future even though it will be with the Republic of Korea instead of the USN.
