    Has it been oh so long? Three of the four squadrons I served in, and one complete Air Wing all gone…

    Time to haul out the squadron video we made once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away…

    Hard believe they axed the Fighting, Biting Steeljaws. It was a shock when I found out. The best squadron alone with all the carriers I cruised on. Man now I know how the dinosaurs felt.

  3. It wasn’t without a fight, but the bean counters had their (myopic) way. Still lots of Steeljaws about these parts and we’ll always host a cold one when we meet.
