Stuck in an alternative reality
MIRAMAR FLYING CLUB
Retired First Class Aviation Ordnanceman. Was the Ordnance shop LPO for HCS-5, VP-0919 and NAWS-0176. Spent my active duty time onboard the USS Saratoga and worked the flight deck as a Purple Shirt. Went AO in the Reserve and made rate via on the job training. Between the two rates I worked in and the units I was assigned to I became very proficient in both flight line operations and aviation ordnance tasks. I am proud of my time in both HAL-5 and HCS-5 as we trace our lineage straight to HC-7 and HA(L)-3 and was trained and influenced by Officers and Enlisted from both units. My specialty in this group is operations planning with leanings toward CAS, CSAR and Navy Special Warfare missions. That said I have a good footing in the history of air and sea operations from 1939 to the recent past and while anything planned for the group is fictitious it is rooted in historical fact, unless stated as an "alternate universe" or just fo fun.
As to flight sim, I am a long time flight simmer, formerly CO of CAG40 virtual and now operating the Black Lagoon Trade and Transport Co. My goal is to gather my former FS9 pilots to this club and stage a takeove, and have them help other newer members in their enjoyment of FSX. Any mention of a takeover, hostile or not was just a typo and nothing else, understand? NOTHING ELSE. Or you will be sleeping with the fishes, err, enjoying the enchanting underwater world of the East River.:D
