E2C Hawkeye stationed aboard the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower...

Just happened to hear about the sad news today. My thoughts go out to the families and crew. I served as a plane captain with VAW-121 during Desert Shield/Storm. I had the highest respect for the crews and did the best I could to ensure the readiness of the aircraft before each flight-I was also lucky to see all of our crew return safely. Most people probably have no idea of demands and risk these crews face on every mission. I firmly believe that the overall great safety records of squadrons can be attributed directly to the dedication of the people serving- as the demands placed on equipment on personel are all too often pushed to the max limit.  (Apr 5, 2010 | post #32)
