    David,   I flew C-141s out of Norton then T-39 from Yokota then C141s again out of Travis.  I retired out of Mcguire.  Started in Vietnam, ended in Gulf War I.  I was a pilot but loved navigation.  I would get my Navigator to let me do the cell shots over the ocean.  When the 141 was stretched Lockheed removed the sextant port and installed trip. INS.  Thats when I bought my marine type sextant ( plastic ) and would shoot cell when on Islands.  Fell in love and I miss it.
