    Also, the A-7 squadrons did not paint insignias on hangar doors like the S-3s, but instead would paint them over squadron entrances on the parking lot side of their hangars. NC

    They are looking at answers to that very question. As for the other side of the base, when A-7s were parked on the flightline, their wings were folded. I too, had questioned that (and I was in two Corsair II squadrons!). But after posting a question about this on FB, other vets reminded me. Aircraft would taxi out from their parking spots, then spread wings. Squadron maintenance division would fold wings sometimes when space was needed in the hangar ashore, and definitely when at sea. Wing locks were always installed with folded wings on SLUFs. A-7s wings would unfold without the locks. :encouragement: NC

    P-Woogey Martin and Scott Pappy are hard at work, creating a FSX/P3D native version of NAS Cecil Field, FL. I have looked forward to this, ever since John Stinstrom's FS9 version. Here are some teaser screenshots, and will post more.:encouragement: NC

    Yes, but normally more than 8. Not quite sure why the average was so low. I do know that the airwing would direct squadrons not due to deploy to transfer aircraft to deploying squadrons, so their number would be 15, I believe. Yes, 174 was the RAG A-7 squadron, and then when VFA-106 was commissioned, it became the Hornet RAG squadron. A lot of transferring of aircraft between squadrons happened continually. NC

    I stopped by the Naval Aviation Museum here in Pensacola today, hoping to obtain more information on NAS Cecil Field. The museum library expectedly had very little info. But I did get copies of a couple things. One is a black & white copy of a base map, which is pre-1980, and the other interesting document shows the aircraft inventory on base for November of 1980. NC

    Navy Chief replied to a thread Broke My Back in The NewsHawks
    Hopefully that brace will help you get some relief, Ron! I am only 2 yrs younger than you, and am having my share of neck/back problems. The VA has denied my Disability Claim 3 times now (no surprise, from what a lot of other vets tell me). I am going to see a VA-appointed doc this coming week, who will "evaluate" my problems. Not looking forward to this appointment. At at our age, when such things happen, I am glad there IS medicine that can relieve pain. Of course the downside to that is you can't really do much because you are either asleep or too loopy to function. Take care of yourself! Pete
