Our Blue Angels Trip
MCAS Beaufort, S.C. 13APR96
I went for a beer and the guy asked "Bud or Bud Light?".
I said "Who cares, it all comes from the same horses! He replied
"Yeah, and it all winds up the same place."
Note potential recruit at end of line.
The Bone made a max performance takeoff and climb, then
disappeared to the south. He showed up a few acts later
in a very impressive low pass. The best part was the
four point hesitation roll at 100 feet.
OK, so I lied
about that last part. Sue me.
The Hoodlumette liked the DC-3's. She asked about the stripes on this
one and I told here it was a zoo plane used for hauling zebras. Please
don't tell her any different, you don't want to destroy a child's faith
in her father.
The Hoodlumette took this picture also. She knew it was basically the
same airplane, but she could tell the differences. Can you?
