    Hello, I'm new to this forum and I'd like to introduce myself.
    My screen name is MaxQ. I'm 50 some odd years old, ex Navy.
    Worked TA4J Scooters and F 14s. I was stationed at Guantanamo Bay around 1975. Spent 1977 to 1978 with the Tophatters (Tomcat squadron) on board the Big John (USS Kennedy)

    Currently still working overhauling jet engines.

    I am looking forward to some interesting postings.

    Welcome MaxQ! Retired AECS here. Spent a little time on "Big John" myself. I'm not much of a jet freak myself but I really love the Scooter. I got a real kick out of watching the Pensacola crowd doing their "Deck Quals" in TA-4s off the America and the Ike. And nothing gets your heart pumping like watching a Tomcat launch at night in full burner! We have a few NAVY Alumni here so feel right at home.
