We really just hung out with folks from the Connie and don't recall "where" just that it was a good time. Only person that we can recall that was stationed there was a nutty guy by the name of Rich Mauer aka "Splash". He flew S-3's and T-39's. We happened to meet him again later otherwise wouldn't have remembered him at all.

Fair Winds.

I think she was in VT22 in Texas not VC like I originally said. I just have CRS from being hit in the head one too many times.

Sali does know who Splash is. Small community.

I was in Va Beach when a Navy plane cut his towline and target over town and layed down a few thousand feet of wire over the north end. That was exciting.

Ah, A-4's in Texas as a flight instructor? In Kingsville per chance? That's where we saw Splash again. Does she know the "Splash story?" I laughed so hard when I heard about the incident and how he got his call sign. Not really funny for the other aviator involved, but hey...sometimes you laugh at about anything.

I'll have to get her involved in this conversation next time we are together. I am in the Keys working and she is home in Virginia taking care of house, kids and horses.
