Never could beat that guy at acey-deucey or cribbage. Playing him made alert 30’s and 15’s go faster during the midwatch. He could kickstart a Sea King faster than an angry farmer kicks a mule . . .I agree, may God hold him close.

In 1973 Jake Dennis put an HS-8 SH3 on Coral Maru while still at the Pier. Wx would be called marginal SVR in today's parlance. As the young sprog copilot I thought it was WOXOF. Never saw the large hulking cranes until the fog lifted and the ship got underway. All to make an airwing CQ. Fortunately I brought extra skivvies.

I will neither confirm nor deny but I do remember times when the fog came down to the level of the bridge when flying into NAS Alameda/USS Coral Sea.

Guess that depends on which direction they’re flying . . .if to sea to join the aircraft carrier, hard to fire them all!!

I would imagine that taking a flight of 6 helicopters under the Golden Gate Bridge would also be frowned upon these days!

We got away with that kind of exciting flyover back in my day.  TINS. Once upon a time in early ‘72 our airwing was tagged to perform a flyby at the NAS Lemoore or the LATWINGPAC COC - I don’t recall which.  The ceremony was in front of the base admin building.  The lead was a department head from a sister squadron and I was right wing in the delta.  Lead set up to depart a point 30 miles south from around 15,000ft.  Of course, we were to cruise by just as the Anthem concluded.  We headed inbound at high power in a gradual descent and by the time we leveled off I could tell that we were going as fast as I had ever been in my life.  The main gate flashed by about 100’ below immediately followed by the admin building’s Stars and Stripes to my left about 50’ below us.  

When we got back to the hangar someone’s duty officer told the lead “they” wanted to see him at LATWING HQ.  When he got there “they” yelled at him about scaring h____ out of the guests.  The Commodore’s wife had been especially frightened by the spectacle.  

Getting yelled at ended the matter and he went on getting more famous for other antics, screened for a fleet squadron and retired as a captain.
