US Air Force? Say what?

The Truman returned to Norfolk on December 20th.

  1. Interesting. I’m currently reading a book about Doolittle’s raid on the Japanese homeland in 1942.

    There was contraversy about the U.S. “Army-Airforce” flying their B-25’s off of a U.S. “Navy” Aircraft Carrier.

    Not that it couldn’t be done and it was the only option at the time.

    But due to inter-service rivalry.

    1. In this case, Toejam, the planes are not USAF but Navy. I don’t even think the USAF operates any C-2s, though I could be wrong about that.

  2. I don’t know myself, Murdoc. I just took the blurb under the photo for its face value.

    I’m gonna snoop aroud the net to see what I can find out.
