Team Alpha, Vandy 1

Nose Gunner Pat Marsh and me with Vandy 1, NAS Oceana Air Show, 2015ish.

Vandy 1 is a Czech-built L-39 Albatross jet trainer with a paint job honoring the famous “bunny-tailed” Point Mugu VX-09 jet, also called Vandy 1. Fun jet to fly.  Not a whole lot of thrust coming out of that Ivchenko engine, only about 3,900 lbs, but in a jet that only weighs 10,000 lbs, you can still haul the mail and pull 6 gs.
