Do We Need to Have a Talk? Episode 84

E-2C Hawkeye Early Warning Aircraft

Get ready to soar with laughter in our chat with Sluggo, the ex-E-2C Hawkeye pilot with tales taller than a tail fin! Hear how a Naval Academy Midshipman’s mom innocently developed a film roll, giving new meaning to “naval exposure.” Hear how he navigated Aviation Officer Candidate School on one good leg and a wing. Sluggo’s not just full of high-flying stories but also some close shaves – like that time he played chicken with a hydraulic failure in the dead of night, danced with a ramp during a landing, and tamed a cocky student and went right back to work. Fasten your seatbelts, it’s going to be a hilariously bumpy ride!
