Corpus Christi, TX

For many years the Naval Air Station Corpus Christi has been a naval pilot training base. Many naval aviators that have went on to become major leaders in Naval Aviation and beyond, received their basic aviation skills and wings at NAS Corpus Christi.

There is a very popular RV park at the base and is now open to civilian visitors.

I took this picture at the main entrance to the officers club.

I forgot a museum the other day when I wrote about the 45th Infantry Division Museum and its planes. If you are ever in Nampa, Idaho, there is a warbirds museum located there.


Warhawks Museum - Nampa, ID

Starke, FL

Camp Blanding Joint Training Center: Even though itís basically a Florida National Guard training center its land mass is quite large and many other military units use it for training. Itís quite isolated with the nearest town (Stark) being about 12 miles west of the main gate. There is no air field there, yet there is a display of Navy/Air Force aircraft at the main gate.

There is a medium size RV Park on the base, mostly located on the banks of a large clear water lake. ďSnow BirdsĒ will nearly fill it up in the winter months.

USS Midway, C-1 Trader.

Aboard aircraft carriers during the 60s & 70s this aircraft was the sailorís friend. It delivered mail to the carriers and was commonly called the COD (Carrier on board delivery).

I took these pictures while serving with VF-151 aboard the USS Midway, 1971.

Rapid City, SD

Here are a couple of old twin prop aircraft found on display at Ellsworth AFB. They might bring back fond memories for some and wonderment for others.
