Must of been carry on/off system.
Not many know what a CT rating is.

Yep, they sat in the Sensor 1 and Sensor 2 seats, curtains drawn the whole eight hour mission. During the planeside brief, our Mission Commander was introducing them. Things on VP aircraft are pretty informal, lots of crews go by nicknames while inflight(not call signs). He asked the CT1, ""Whats your first name?" and the answer was "Bob" or something like that. He asked the young Latina CT2 what her first name was ""Petty Officer, Sir".

All you P-3'ers never got to experience real Navy.
List the ships you were on.
FFG-45. My least favorite duty station. We did do a UNITAS cruise which included 22 port calls in 5 months. That was the only good part about at that command. Too many collateral duties. DAPA, Dept. 3 M coordinator, duty section leader in addition to regular duties. DAPA had to attend all masts. So most Friday afternoon in port were spent at captain's mast.

You can have the real experience. I'd rather have the TAD travel and per diem checks.
