|Feet Dry, Palms Wet
"Feet Dry" is the message Naval Aviators send
when they cross the shoreline on their way to an inland target. During
the Vietnam conflict, Grumman A-6 Intruder flight crews made that call
many times in all kinds of weather and at all times of day or night.
Here, a bombed up A-6A speeds low over Vietnamese rice paddies, escorted
by an A-6B, which has just launched a Standard Anti-Radiation Missile
missile at an enemy missile site. This Aerocature was created for
VA-75's 1972-73 WestPac Cruise Reunion in May of 2005.
Note: Each month a different image from the current calendar year is featured here. To avoid
the gnawing 12-month period of suspense to see all 12 pieces (along with lots of aviation
anniversaries (When did the first pig fly?), incredible trivia (What is Godzilla's "birthday"?),
and outrageous quotes from people that should know better) place your
order for the Aerocatures Calendar now!
