|CAPT. Pobieski is awarded her V.I.P. Ride certificate by CAPT's Vickster Kühn and Asra Kron, Angels 1 and 7, 11/11/2017.|
Opening the 2017 Veterans Day celebrations on the deck of the USS Kitty Hawk (see here), Captain Asra Kron, Angel 7, took CV-63's Skipper, Captain Sidney Pobieski, for a very special V.I.P. Ride. Launching from the Kitty Hawk, CAPT. Pobieski could experience first hand the capabilities of the Navy Flight Demonstration Team's Cougar, as CAPT. Kron went through some of the maneuvers performed by both the Diamond and the Solos in this season's demo layout.
No need for paper bags during flight as the Skipper is a seasoned naval aviator, and after touching down on the Kitty Hawk's deck she was quick on her feet and on her wits, taking the opportunity to ask very interesting questions about the Cougar's performance she had just gone through.
The Blue Angels wish to extend their gratitude to Captain Sidney Pobieski in her support for the squadron, namely allowing 7th Fleet naval aviators to serve with the NFDT, making our effort to be the ambassadors of the United States Navy in Second Life more rewarding and meaningful, as our pilots come from different fleets and USN inspired groups.
CAPT. Asra "Cougar" Kron
