I just watched the Spirit of Aviation Week event with "Popeye" Doyle and EAA's narrator. I have been to Pensacola and been ignored by the Commander of the Blue Angels as I waited for him to clear his line of autograph seekers. Captain "Zeke" Cormier, who was a Navy Ace and former "Blues" Commander was someone who was instrumental in taking me to Miramar to meet Lt. Commander J.C. Smith and get into class 70-1 or "Top Gun." "Zeke" later made video tapes and was instrumental in getting the Aircraft Carrier museum in San Diego. At Douglas Long Beach, he was the only presenter who made words to go with his slides in briefing books. I was asked after he left to take a similar approach to mine. This event today was easily worth my membership cost.
