Six weeks of hell? Try it from the Navs point of view. Two weeks prep. Then the 6 weeks...followed by a week or so of castigation, followed by a month just calming down. BY.

I selected the link then went to 'Hands to Flying Stations 1975'. I was flying Buccaneers at the time but left Ark in December 1974. Good to see a lot of familiar faces, and weren't we all so young then!
