chriswoodul A favorite momment of mine. This is the Collings Foundation's Douglas TA-4F Skyhawk which I was in the backseat of for an hours flight a few years ago. We flew late in the day and landed at sundown which gave this beautiful sky for this picture..my friend Matt had my camera and recorded all the ground ops and overhead the field stuff while my camera that I carried up the tall ladder got dropped to the ramp pre-flight....major party foul!
A great day in a fantastic airplane even if a flight of ducks decided to fly right through our flight path as we did our overhead break into Addison Airport! Luckily none hit us!

  •   triumph_of_los My Dad and I used to sit on base, Miramar NAS, and watch the A-4's and F-4's all the time. That brings back childhood memories. @chriswoodul 4d
  •   chriswoodul @triumph_of_los How cool is that. Miramar back in the day, Fightertown-that was the base to really see some amazing things. I would have loved that! 4d
  •   patriotic_girl Such a beautiful pic! We have an A-4 but it looks so much more beautiful seeing one doing what she was meant to do; fly! 39min

chriswoodul A classic look at how fighter pilots talk....with their hands. My mother shot a series of candid photos of my father and a squadon mate after an ACM (Air Combat Manuvering or Mock Dog-Fightng). As the story goes, "Tank" did not agree with or like the fact he just had his rear handed to him on that particular sortie. The whole series in order is really a neat little capture of a momment in time in the early 70's depicting this age old post flight "debate" style. Im glad she had the presence of mind to have seen the opportunity to get this recorded. Dad, is on the right.

NAS Dallas, VF-201 Hunters flight line.

  •   alfonsofaustino Great shot -- i see an "ugly but well hung" in the background. I once witness a ground fight between two fighter jocks (navy) cuz one pulled up in front of the other one from underneath-- when they landed, the one that got buzzed grabbed the buzzer when they landed. 6d
  •   chriswoodul @alfonsofaustino haha that is funny! Small egos have no place in combat aviation and both dad and "tank" were excelent fighter pilots and great friends...I have spent lots of time around Tank when I was younger and he has a huge personality and I like him alot. That said, I think mom knew that there was some interest conversation going on while she waited on dad to come on in off the ramp. Dad told me that Tank just was not going to accept he had his ass handed to him on that hop...and of course dad was not going to let that one get away! ; ) both his hands are acting as each others aircraft in the "replay" his other hand is hidden by his body. Even if it wasnt for real, these guys (and girls these days too) take this stuff very seriously..and they learn from it every time they go up. 6d
  •   alfonsofaustino So true! It is their focus, drive, discipline, and competitive nature that makes your pappy and Tank great fighter jocks -- it's so cool you have that life with them and your mum captured many wonderful moments of him. You could probably make a real cool film about you pappy. 6d

  •   advrider973 That's awesome we do it unintentionally and sometimes we need the whole room to describe a maneuver 6d
  •   jfraleman Excellent photo and story @chriswoodul 6d
  •   gabezilla808 @chriswoodul what a shot. It's amazing what can be captured on a whim and prove to be a choice piece of memorabilia 6d

chriswoodul A better NoCrop version of an earlier post of my father, CDR Jack Woodul USNR. In the cockpit of his favorite US Navy Fighter Jet, the Vought F-8H Crusader. This was taken at NAS Dallas, in the early 1970s while he flew with VF -201, the Hunters. After his active duty in the US Navy flying A-4Es with VA-86, the Sidewinders, in Combat off the USS Independence in 1965-66 and a tour as a RAG Instructor at VA-44 he left active duty and began at Delta Airlines in 1967. At the same time he joined the US Navy Reserves and flew with what turned into VF-201 until about 1975. VF -201 flew the Crusader then traded them for the F-4N around 1974. Not enjoying the Phantom as much as the Crusader he decided retire from the military.
This picture, or actually a large framed one that was on the wall of my home as a kid sparked an early interest in Escape Systems, ejection seats..I already had been hooked into aviation from the start..my first word was "hot dog" but I was pointing up into the sky at an airplane. Come to think of it, I was not that far off the mark!
