Some guys get all the coolest assignments. This time, it was AVweb's Joe Godfrey. Joe recently had the opportunity to fly onto the USS Stennis via arrested landing in a C-2 Greyhound, spend 26 hours as a DV (distinguished visitor) watching Navy pilots get carrier qualified, then get a catapult shot back to home base in San Diego ... all courtesy of Uncle Sam. If that's not enough to stimulate your salivary glands, check out Joe's detailed account and photo gallery. Then write your Congresscritter.
