I once again had the amazing opportunity to be at NAS Oceana to record
the homecoming of a Carrier Air Wing, this time Carrier Air Wing 1
(CVW-1). CVW-1 deployed for 7 1/2 months on the U.S.S. Enterprise's historic final deployment. During the deployment they travelled over 80,000 miles and flew over 8,000 sorties.
I wanted to thank Kelley Stirling, Mike Maus and the family members
and aviators of VFA-11 'Red Rippers', VFA-136 'Knighthawks' & VFA-211 'Fighting Checkmates' for permitting me to be a
part of this amazing event, it is something I will never forget.
