This site was built because of my many good memories of VW-4, the Connies, and the many squadron members that I met and am slowly getting back in touch with again.

Every year when the Hurricane Season starts it seems I have to look at my old photographs and facts of the Squadron and Hurricane's. I thought that I would share them with anybody who is interested .

Do we all remember when?

How we had to push open and close the huge hanger doors .
I think the use electric one's now. How about the F.O.D. walk downs? Now I understand how important they were. And the Wednesday morning inspection's. I hated them, but I figured out how to get an old dirty pair of boondockers to shine in an instant. Try using some gloss black spray paint on them just before inspection, and hope the inspection team doesn't decide to touch them.
