VMFA-142 Flying Gator's Last Flight, 5/31/2008
The last three planes to fly took off from NAS Atlanta/Dobbins ARB field at a little after 3 p.m. in the afternoon. They flew for about an hour, out of my camera range, and then came back and landed. The planes were piloted by the current CO and two prior COs of the Flying Gators.
This photo gallery contains photos of the ceremonial last flight on 5/31/08. I also contains photos taken on 6/17/08 of the last maintenance flight of plane 200 in the Flying Gator's paint and logos, as well as some photos of the CO and other officers of VMFA-142. VMFA-142 will be missed from NAS Atlanta and the entire Metro Atlanta area.
