What follows are a couple of things: a general history of a remarkable ship; a history of a remarkable squadron; an overview of aircraft that have served on the Midway, and a series of slides from 1974 to 1977 - snapshots of the Cold War from a squadron perspective - a pilot's perspective.
To ensure the accuracy of these posts, I invite any reader who stumbles across an error or notices an omission to bring the matter to my attention and I will make the appropriate adjustments. You can do so by leaving a comment on the post or by sending me an email here.
