    Bob, in the Pacific my father was Chief of the Boat at 24. He was a Reserve Midshipman on December 7 and a few days later a Seaman 3rd in the regular Navy. Rank came quickly.

    They had an "X" version too. I think the X was what powered the plane Howard Hughes nearly died in.
    We owe a lot to the designers of the turbine engines or we would have depended on nightmares like that to get big airplanes around.

    There is a good anecdote about where and how well you slept on a ship depending on cargo. Regular hardware you slept on deck with your life vest. A gasoline tanker you slept in your warm bunk.

    Came out to a dark airplane on Ground power this morning.. That's smashed bugs and Dew on the windscreens backlit by the ramp lights. Pretty neat shot.

    Then got to shoot an Autoland this morning to 1/16 mile and 800ft RVR visibility! Saw the Runway lights at about 50'. What a life

    Not for Cat 3. RVR is controlling. That particular runway has 600ft rvr as the minimums. Reported at approach clearance was 800/1000/and roll out was better than 3000
