I was in VT-26 Airframes from February 1977 to December 1978. I was on swing shift with low power turn qual. One night I was tasked with a maintenance turn on an aircraft due to a pilot discrepancy. When I did my cockpit checks, I found the engine masters on! Should have seen the fire come out the tailpipe on start!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!

I was a student at VT-26 , NAS Chase field in 1989. I flew 158317 on my Gun-8, safe for solo check ride, on 10 May, 1989. My instructor was Capt. Joe Houlihan, USMC. Joe and I now both work at the same airline!

I was an instructor in VT-26 from 1989 to 1991. I left the Navy in 91 to return to the family farming buisiness in West Texas. According to my Navy log book the last Navy plane I ever flew was 158317 on 10 May 1991. I remember on that flight I was curious as to how many idle power loops I could do starting from 15,000 feet before reaching 10,000 feet. The answer was 2 and 1/2.
