SIKES, ATC Phillip "Phil" Retired psikes@whidbey.net "...VT-29 was my first duty station after boot camp and NATTC Millington, TN. I arrived in 1968 and served as Plane Captain/Flight Engineer in both aircraft types. A change of rate to TD (Tradevsman) in 1971 moved me to NAS Corpus Christi, Texas and elsewhere around the USA until my retirement in 1988 here at NAS Whidbey Island, Washington. When the TD rate was disestablished I cross rated back to AT and served at NAMTRAGRUDET, VAQ-139 and AIMD from where I retired. I have missed flying in those Convair's ever since..." [28MAR2004]
