Pop flew P2V's back when "two turnin an two burnin" was "cool" - There is some old school video out there for that crazy low altitude, unpressurized, FLY-WITH-WIRE av-gas in the tanks (and smelling it), sub hunting with a wing tip flashlight bullshit.

Oh, the stories I've heard...

I was an F18 Fire Control Tech (code reader), but I ALWAYS LOVED the F4 Thunderpigs. Best Blue Angel shows I ever saw (back in 68). Bent wings, and bad assery, afterburners, smoke, allll OVER the damn place!
