Sometimes you just put your camera up and take a snapshot, hoping something will come out.

When we flew at night from the beach (NAS Oceana) it was usually to get some carrier landing practice (known as FCLP for Field Carrier Landing Practice) at an outlying field near Oceana or whatever base we were at.  If I remember correctly, this shot was while headed back to Oceana after some touch and go’s at a field down in North Carolina. It doesn’t show much other than that gorgeous sunset and the right-hand upper ejection look for the GRU-7 Martin-Baker ejection seat.

Still, it kind of conveys how sweet that ride was and some of the eye-ball pleasing views you can get from that experience.
