Interesting Early model B-17 photos

 Can't remember where I found these photos.   Must be old age creeping up on me.  The camoflage B-17 is a great photo and model to build.  Anyone where and when the photo was taken.

Grumman Guardian Hunter-killer video

 Found this by accident today.  Great 1950 vintage newscast on a ASW carrier group.

VP-93 Naval Reserve Squadron, Selfridge ANG

 Around 1975 VP93 was reactivated by the US Navy as a reserve squadron.   The unit was only activated for 20yrs. Bill Clinton de-activated the major of these high skill naval squadrons and personal.  As Clinton said the cold war was over.  What people didn't the unit still tracked soviet submarines, but all the drug runner out of South American.  I served with VP-93 as AE/FE on the P-3A.  Sadly a lot of my squadrons of my era have past.   This series of photos are for my good friends and Squadron mate.


I was the FE in the chase P3 taking the photos.
