Hello everyone. I just got done making a 2012 airshow season year end picture review and posted them in the photography gallery.

Good Navy blog post

  • October 1, 2012

Some of you may know I'm an ex U.S. Navy sailor, and worked on aircraft carriers or I should say in my case I worked on LPH ships or better known as helicopter carriers. I was an aviation Electronics Technician and worked on MH-53E helicopters. I follow a fellow photographer's blog named Guy Kawasaki and he had a chance to visit a aircraft carrier while at sea to see what carrier life is like. Kind of took me back to my Navy days that I do miss from time to time. Here is the link to his post. It's a long post so enjoy!!
