This was my pride and joy. It looked like a piece of crap for the first 18 months of crewing it but it was a 'code one king'... until it became a "can bird". After the rebuild it went to paint and didn't quite work right for a while. It looked good though. Then off to the sand box and it flew great the whole deployment as well as after returning home. Then, with not having enough ADCC's, the brass decided to try this "Cell" program and assign 2-3 jets per 1 ADCC and was assigned 89-2006 and 89-2008 as well as 083. Then at the end of 99 I decided to pull chocks.
