This post comes from  “An air squadron that for 50 years has been training pilots to fly F/A-18 Hornets was decommissioned at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar during a “sundowner ceremony” on Friday, marking the end of an era for the Department of the Navy.

The sundown commemorates the squadron’s history and contributions to Marine Corps readiness since its commissioning in 1969 when instructors first taught pilots to fly the F-4 Phantom II.” Click here to read the rest of this article.
