I was stationed with VS-21 from MARCH 2000- JUNE 2003. I was a plane captain and if I remember correctly I had my name on eother 700 or 710. After I became a plane captain I struck into the AO rating were I remeber doing numerous Loading of Rockeye (CBU's) and a couple of 1000 pounders, and an unbelieveable amount of training bombs. I learned most of my trouble shooting for electrical systems and learning how to be an Aviation Ordnancemen. If you have any questions feel free to reach me any time.

Aircraft 710, S-3B Viking 160604 was painted over a two and a half week time frame. My crew and I sanded the complete jet on the first day/night. Prepared for paint on the second day. Started spraying the insignia blue upper half from the tail down to the nose on the third day. Prepared for the dark gray lower half and wings on the forth day, sprayed the dark gray on that night. Friday the fifth day removed all the tape and prepared for the Nose artist Laurie Dover who came in that Sunday. The nose art was done during the second week. We recieved the jet back for touch up and apply the finishing touches in two days, so it could fly for the photo shoot in front of Mt Fuji. With A/C 700 which was sanded and painted in three days.

The nose art on Lockheed S-3B Viking 160604 was painted by me, Laurie Dover. I am an artist who paints WWII nose art and insignia on leather flight jackets. We were commissioned by VS-21 to create a specific design to be painted on one of their airplanes, the S-3B Viking, in honor of the squadron�s decommissioning . The artwork is painted in a style reminiscent to nose artwork done during WWII. The nose art was painted on both sides of the airplane, and it was done at the Atsugi, Japan US Navy Base. A couple of weeks later, the airplane with its nose art paintings was showcased at the decommission ceremony and festivities. 3 � inch woven patches of the nose art design were created and sold. Creating this design and painting it at the Navy Base was an amazing experience. Pictures showing the painting process can be seen on http://www.flightjacket.com/NoseartVS21.aspx
