Getting ready to head out to the live ordinance range with a couple of 2000lb laser guided bombs. Rough seas and a hard landing sheared off both main mount wheels triggering the need for a “barricade” landing. Any landing you can walk away from is a good landing.
An in-flight group photo. A very difficult picture to capture because of the whip effect. In the holding pattern above the carrier waiting for launch operations to end and to aircraft recovery to begin.
December 4, 1983 airstrike aircrew participants. Missing squadron mate Lt Lange (KIA) and Lt Robert Goodman (captured then released back to the US after 30 days in captivity). The officers of Attack Squadron Eighty Five – Mediterranean Deployment – 1983.
Out on a mission with our wingman. The “wing” pinning ceremony- 1981.
