  •  My favorite flight was in a C1-A Trader, the mail (9+ / 0-)

    plane on my aircraft carrier.  We didn't take a cat shot, which I always wanted to do, we did a deck launch from the back of the flight deck to the end of the angle.  We were airborne well before we got to the Island (the plane only needed about 85 knots of airspeed, then we flew into Da Nang, probably a half hour to 45 minute flight.  It was pretty cool.  I still would like to get an arrested landing and a cat shot, but of course that will never happen.  But that would be a kick in the ass.

    Republicans are like alligators. All mouth and no ears.
