Fig and Repete recount their time in VMA-223 with Colonel Mitch Triplett. Col. Triplett passed away this week and the show is dedicated to him. The consummate Marine, Aviator, Leader; “Trip” will be missed by all and remembered fondly.
Some funny ATC interactions are recounted and then we lead into the prior-teased tale of the “Fig-Dog”. Not for the feint of heart, this really happened… and how it didn’t turn into a bigger ‘shit-storm’ figuratively – well – we can just count ourselves lucky!
If the end of this episode seems a little clipped it’s because in post show edit Repete had to fix some sound issues that occurred during recording, but nothing of importance got dropped.
Until Next Week: Check Six!
