Great story Chris and I can relate. December 1972 Korat, Thailand and getting ready to go "downtown" (Hanoi) in A-7 ship 982. Easy to remember since it was the only jet we had painted up with the sharks teeth and those are missions you don't forget.

Fast forward 36 years and here I am with the JHI version of 982. It seemed a little strange at the time to be posing there with an RC version of the one I flew. I have to admit though that the adrenalin was flowing a little faster in 1972....and the JHH was just an electric fan. Sure wish somebody would make a decent turbine A-7 and I would be all over it.

Thanks for the memories,

Craig
