Fleet AW Association

There I Was...

There I Was... list the stories of fellow AWs who have been in an "extremis" situation. Through either sound NATOPS procedures, willpower, or just good fortune...they are here to tell their stories. Remember that the procedures they followed may have been subsequently changed or forbidden by NATOPS. Nevertheless, the wisdom they share may be the ingredient that brings you home if misfortune strikes.
Remember, NATOPS is no excuse for sound judgement!
Fly safe and come back dry.

Send your stories in...I'll edit as necessary and return them to you for approval before I post them.
Your experiences will help the AWs of the future. Rob
