Help with weather planning on long range flights

Excellent! Which platform Rick? P-3C's for me. North Atlantic Winter mostly, in and around GI-UK gap, between 500ft (sorta) and the ceiling. Most bangs and bruises I ever got at one time. Talk about weather changes. Loved the flying, but was usually more calm beneath the waves.

 

 

Hi Dave-

SH-3As (the shithook) for me. Most of my time was reserve cadre chasing subs around Puget Sound (NAS Whibey Island) and SF Bay (NAS Alameda). The only time I got out of the country was a short TDY to Barbers Point HI :LMAO: . Ever been to Fallon NV? Now there's a sweet duty station - live fire range for the ring knockers at Miramar (Top Gun). Rates right up there with Diego Garcia and Adak AK. I used to catch rides on the Orions - sweet bird at FL300, don't think I'd like 'em wave hopping around the pond at 500 ft on two engines!! Were you stationed at Brunswick? Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

That is indeed correct!  Being from Connecticut, I thought I knew what winter was like. Nope. Brunswick winter... man, if that's a taste of what our Canadian brothers go through, then I kjust quit! LOL. In my 4 or 5 months there, I'm happy I wasn't actually there most of the time.  Run to Puerto Rico, bang over to Bermunda, then up to the Gap.
