    Gotcha.

    A buddy from over at the pub speaks Portugese, and works with
    the 1st in Brazil.

    Hence my confusion.

    OK, poor excuse, but it's 01:30 here, and my brain quit
    around midnight.

    Cool logos!

    @vietvettwo: "knee deep navy"? We preferred the term puddle pirates or, The Coast Guard, that small nucleus which the navy revolves around in time of war. We actually carried a Jolly Roger on board and depending on the circumstances, the CO would order it hoisted below the national ensign. That man had a sense of humor.

    One funny (sad) sub story I can relate happened on a training exercise in the Tongue of the Ocean with a Navy hunter/killer. After finding, tracking (term used loosely as the sub was running circles around us) and an hour of high speed (low 30's) ASW maneuvers we looked at the CCTV monitor on the bridge. Someone in CIC had put a sign in front of the camera which read 45+ktsWTF. Needless to say the exercise was over. I guess the navy had had enough. The sad fact is we would have been dead before we arrived had the scenario been real.

    What a shame I don't know how to post pictures. But then again, I'm only a moddest Piper 28 flyer.

    I love flying, but I'd get bored if I had to fly for a living.
