Not too bad today. Flew 1.7 hours with Mooch on a Simulated Close In Fire Support mission and LCAC escort. We flew wing on Talon and BK. The LCAC escort was good and the SimCIFS was great. We really got to turn and burn. We had plenty of banca boat targets and flew around Subic Bay at 100-150 feet for 1 1/2 hours. It looks like something out of South Pacific, lots of grass huts and palm trees, lush greenery, etc...I's going to be interesting to meet the locals. And the last thing was the break coming back to the boat. Lots of fun, two Cobras and a Huey. Harndog got some film. 30 pullups, 100 situps, 50 pushups. 154 days to go.
