FORGET THE LIGHT I WANT THE KEY FOB LOL
Hey Bubba and 2 Wings,
I spent 6 months on the USS Midway with a Marine Detatchment of RF4B Phantoms out of El Toro in 1976 and loved every minute of the excitement working with those jets on board the carrier.
Well, the Midway was retired in '92, and I was invited and went to the decomissioning ceremony.
It was a sad day. But low and behold, they brought her back to San Diego last year, opened her us as a museumand I became a life member.
She is open from 10:00 am til 4 daily, and you can get into all the restored compartments, engine rooms, mess hall, sick bay, the flight deck, etc. There are lots of restored aircraft on board and even flight simulators in the hangar deck you can fly.
There is a cafe on the fantail for lunch.
I go down 3-4 times a year, and have a lot of fun there, meeting old military types like myself too.
They have a gift shop there. And that is where I got the Key Fob
That (Remove Before Flight) key fob really has been a subject of conversation since I got it. Got one for my dad too, since he also was a pilot.
Maybe we could meet there sometime and go on board (I can take 6 guests at a time, for free) and I could show you around and you can get the keychains, but otherwise, you can order them online too.
Here's the link.
