[/quote] I was a flight instructor at Rucker from 81-84 teaching Nighthawk/NVG and later Combat Skills.  Returned there as a contractor from 90-92, taught primary briefly then moved to a special contract instructing in the CH47 transition.[/quote]

Nighthawk- that was a hoot! I was at Rucker 79/80. Class 79-49. Those days we were flying full face PVS-4s. We’ve come a long way.

Not too far ahead, no doubt we crossed paths in one of the academic buildings or out at Lowe.
