A friend of mine is a colonel in the Air Force who was once assigned the commander of a Naval base in Corpus Christi, TX. I was surprised that the Air Force and Navy share personnel sometimes and also do flight training together.
Cool fact! Thanks.PUSSLED, that was tongue-in-cheek. In fact, I read once that somebody described a very dangerous maneuver that the Navy Blue Angels did, to an Air Force Thunderbirds pilot. It was not a stunt the Thunderbirds did. He said, "What do you expect from a bunch of flattop jockeys?"
To keep the public interested in naval aviation following the end of World War II, 73 years ago this week CNO Admiral Chester Nimitz ordered the formation of the U.S. Navy Blue Angels, seen here flying over the Battleship Missouri Memorial at Pearl Harbor in 2014. #TBT
Like to see any air force pilot land on a carrier.
As we see, the Navy has to number them to keep track. The Air Force Thunderbirds can do it in their heads.
