Now were at Naval Air Station Mayport, FL 3 weeks. This place blows compared to San Diego.
I typed in english so everyone would understand.
mayport and jacksonville suck in general
you're on deployment in FL?
No FL is just a pit stop we're doing a change of command and a lot of maintaince. My deployment is CD Ops in South America.
Underway crew checking in
We've been at sea 3 weeks for our first work up and I'm glad to be heading home in a few days. Lots of flying and LOTS of GQ this time out. Hell, we're at MOPP 2 right now
We just got done with Ultra S hella GQ's 2 a week for 2 months. Our bird was broke for a while they had to make up 100 hours from the previous month. Needless to say flight ops all fucking day and night. I didn't get a lot of sleep .
We get a no fly day tomorrow followed by 2 days of 30 plus sorties each They're supposed to fly the birds home the day after all that too
Lucky SOB all of our no fly days on Sunday's turned into "Oh we'll just do DLQ's for 6 hours" .
welcome to jax
What's a DLQ? I assume you work on helos, are you on a destroyer? They just announced a dual down drill for us tonight, no AC for a few hours
Best definition I have is bounces on the flight deck with practice approaches.
forward deployed navy, nuff said... underway 270 something days my first year there.
You deploy to Florida? Holy shit I they need a green to blue program.
Ah, we call them CQs (Carrier Quals), same idea. I'll toss a wave to the Midway when we pull in for ya
Dam. What sucks for me is that I did 16 months on my ship before doing a deployment. Training cycle was rough. We were gone 3 weeks out of every month. Deployment is cake though.
All FFG's doing Counter Drug Ops out of Naval Base San Diego stop in Mayport, FL.
We delivered 12 tons of coke to Key West Coast Guard Base and handed it over to the DEA. I have an awesome picture of me infront of 12 tons. I'll post that this weekend.
I hope they put me with an HSL or send me to and Amphib big decks scare me .
