Thank you all for your service.[quote]
The F-14 was being wrung out at the Naval Missile Center at Pt Mugu while I was there. Kept in closed hangers at all times. The first sucessful "six on six" (firing 6 Phoenix missiles simultaneously at 6 separate targets) was completed while I was there (We all got a letter of commendation for it, dated May 24, 1974). That's 42 yrs ago - hard to believe the Tomcats are are history now. Where does the time go?
