Once again our idiotic leaders thought that this awesome plane couldn't hold its own in the Jet Era!! BIG MISTAKE AS USUAL!!! I swear if we get more ignorant bastards in the Military, they will get us ALL killed!!

Was assigned to VMF 542N as a 6511, Ordinanceman from Sep 52 to Mar 53. Went to Fallon NV on winter manuevers in Dec 52 and can still remember plugging rocket pigtails in while standing in the propwash of those R2800 engines. I was 6 ft so I was the low man on the totem poles and had a shorter Buck Sgt on my shoulders. That propwash was really cold. Had a good time anyway. If any of you readers can remember me, I would love to hear from you. Jon

I cerwed on the flight line at Cherry Point in VMF-n 531 in 1949. At 17 years I was able to tell a 1 Star he couldn't fly my aircraft till the line officer approved it as I had just run it up and one of the engines had a non functioning magneto. I got dirty looks at first but stood by while the General ran the engine up and decided that the kid that told him he couldnt fly his ship knew what he was talking about. I got a "Well done Son", from him as he was escorted back to the line shack to be assigned to a different aircraft.
My greatest fear while flying rear seat was the canope would shatter under certain flight manuvers. We all hated the thought of having to pick shards of plastic out of our heads and other parts as well.
Any 531 guys of the 49 and 50 era out there want to remanise, give me a email.
