We have a special request from “Tmurf”…
He is in the process of chopping an article to appear in “Hook” and for the Naval Aviation Museum in P’cola on the history of JOPA-Mobiles, y’know, the squadron get around cars. And he asked me to ask y’all for some assistance. Happy to oblige.
Here is a picture of the VAQ-134 JOPAmobile, now on permanent display in the museum in Pensacola. I am working on a JOPAmobile story for Hook and owe the museum a background on squadron cars throughout Naval Aviation so they can develop story boards for the display. I was hoping you could post the photo and ask folks to send any squadron car photos/stories to my Tailhook email account: email@example.com.
Please partake… this is a great part of Naval Aviation history and is a wonderful catalyst for more “There we were…” stories. Not all great aviation tales have to be set in the cockpit.
