ECS, P-3's have a distinctive Mark On Top (MOT) signature as well. One of my spookier moments was when monitoring a sonobuoy pattern during a NATO ASW exercise I noted a classic P-3 MOT on one of my displays. MY aircraft did not mark the buoy- we had company that night. Two P-3's on the same sonobuoy pattern under light discipline and with no COMMS is a very bad thing...

"Up at Camp David, we do skeet shooting all the time," he said. "Why, I even have my security detail pick up the little skeets to be cleaned for dinner."

Looks like a Kara CG, a Udaloy DDG, and maybe a couple Kirvak FFGs. F-5's are not used as military trainers, they're aggressor aircraft in Red Flag and Top Gun only; the T-45 Goshawk is the Navy's current trainer aircraft. One would think the Dems would be smart enough, when honoring US servicemen and women, to depict US hardware as the backdrop. Guess not.

Hand salute, ready, two! I'd want these guys on my side, "Impressive" doesn't come close. Fair winds and following seas to your fallen, Maori Warriors.

Most military airfields have arresting gear. Sometimes it's nice to be able to come to a quick stop during an emergency landing. Which is likely the only occasion a -15 would use 'em, as the arresting gear's use fouls the runway until it can be reset.

Fear not, UJ. Google Valerie Jarrett, the harpy behind the throne. Loopy Uncle Joe is as safe as a house cat; the Hildebeast won't join with that crew. The bodies are stacked high under the Obama bus.

This coward went to a place where he felt free to commit his crimes, same as Hassan. In the end, it took an armed citizen to stop the shooter. The fact the citizen is a police officer is immaterial.

I went through all the silly Navy uniform changes, so I usually just wore a flight suit whenever I could get away with it. As for the digi-blue cammies, the best answer I got was in the event of falling overboard, you could hide from the sharks.

USS Chafee, DDG-90, is an Arleigh Burke class guided missile destroyer. There is no "Chafee class" of US warships.

"I want to remind them of just one thing: The game is over and you are still in the Navy. Heh." Ah, that would be TWO things, UJ. How about: The game is over and Army lost, just as they have for the previous nine years straight.

My my, the Dems do love to dish it out. Seems they have a real problem with taking it, especially when it's true. There's some words for that; the first one that comes to my mind is "loser". Well, there are some unprintable adjectives in front.

Park 'em all in Eric Holder's waiting room, flexi-cuffs and all. They'll be in GITMO before evening prayers.

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it ironic that Barak-O is lecturing Israel on it’s borders when he has little control over his own?
