Squadron History

The F/A-18D

(Photographs by Nancy Wingo)

Prior to the August luncheon, squadron members Nancy Watson, John Fry, Jack and John Bushong visited VMFA(AW)-225 on the east end of the MCAS Miramar flight line. Coming along for the visit were Desert Storm members Peter Richardson and Steve Stewart. This view looks west from the Vikings' hangar. The red truck in the distance is not a fire truck -- it's the all-important Coca-Cola delivery wagon.
