History  In reference to Last A.S.W. Equipped Flying P2V Neptune also also served with VP-18 and is in my logbook several times. It still has plates covering the "SARA" antenna attachment holes used in early Project Mercury recoveries. I informed the museum of this and for a while they corrected their website, but since have taken it down. When I was there it was in need of extensive corrosion control! I served as PPC in VP-18 (1959-1961) and VP-24 (1964-1966).

Mishaps  VP-47 Mishap - April 12th, 1973
I just re-read the account of the VP-47 P-3 midair with the NASA Convair (SEE: VP-47 - In Memorial for lost friends April 12, 1973) and something jumped out at me. The account mentioned that the NASA pilot didn't question the change to runway 32L. In his defense (not that it's acceptable), our common practice was to allow NASA 711 to land on 32L whenever we could because, after landing, it was a quick turnoff at the intersection near the NASA ramp and a straight shot to the ramp. But what keeps sticking in my mind is a memory that one of the pilots simply asked "Are we cleared to land?", without using a call sign, and the controller, assuming it was the P-3 on final for the left side and said (again without using a call sign) "Cleared to land 32 left." Was it the NASA pilot that asked that? I guess we'll never know, but that's the way I remember it. Since this incident continues to haunt me, I've searched for a transcript of the incident, but can't find it. I just pray that the aviation community in general, and the ATC community in particular, learned a hard lesson from this tragedy.

Mishaps  VP-47 Mishap - April 12th, 1973
I was working in the control tower that terrible day a VP-47 P-3 collided with a NASA Convair 990 (SEE: In Memorial for (VP-47) lost friends April 12, 1973). I still have some rough times when the incident flashes back in my memory because I always second guess myself about "if I could've only recognized what was happening", but I had a trainee working ground control and that was my focus that busy day. I read the post by LT Mischkot about relaying a message to the controller involved that there were no hard feelings. The controller working that day was AC1 Ray Sprinkle and I'm sure that if he had received that message, it would've meant a lot to him. I knew Ray pretty well. Worked with hime every day. He did go through a period of re-training but was never able to re-qualify. I don't know if it was a lack of confidence in himself or a lack of trust from other controllers who had to sign on with him and give their OK that he was ready for requalification. He ended up changing his rate to one of the computer-related jobs and went away. After I retired in 1992, I saw in the Navy Times that Ray had passed away sometime in 1994. God bless him. So, on this Thanksgiving Day, 2014, I am thankful for my blessings, and my heart goes out to all of the families and friends of those who were lost that day. I wonder how the lone survivor is making out. God bless him, too.

Mishaps  VP-50 Mishap - April 17th, 1980
I was probably the first person to arrive at the US Navy Orion crash site in Pago Pago (SEE: In Memorial for lost VP-50 friends...April 17th, 1980). I'd not thought about it for 34 yers until coming across your site. I have many clear recollections of the morning and also photos of the event. I'd be pleased to share them with any persons associated with the crash.

As I recall, the plane had numerous electrical problems caused by rats chewing through the wiring. Because of that, the crew was nicknamed the Rat Patrol. I was to be transferred from crew one to crew thirteen, but fate intervened. I think of my friend Charley Goetz often and I'll never forget the evening of Jan. 6th when the squadron was called out to learn of our friends lost at sea.

Shipmate  JONES, Richard "Dick"
I served with VQ-2 (1962-1965), VAQ-132 (1970) and VP-47. While with VQ-2 I flew as enlisted third seater aircrew in EA3B's. I flew a lot of missions with LCDR Dave Caswell, Mel Everhart, and Jerry Fox. My second flight squadron was VAQ-132 Scorpions aboard the USS America in 1970 in the Tonkin gulf in EKA3B's. Finished my career in 1978 with VP-47 as a mech on the T-56's. Would not call this the highlite of my career, so I retired and moved to Texas with my wife and two kids. Have not hit a lick since 1993, after I retired the second time, bought an RV and never looked back. Do as much fishing as I can and play a little golf. Have tried to locate Cdr. Caswell but have had no success. If anyone has any info I would be greatful. God bless to everyone.
