Memorial Picture "...REYNOLDS, CDR Kevin Douglas...(VP-46 and VP-50)...Kevin Douglas Reynolds, an intelligence analyst and a former Navy pilot and officer, has died at 43. Reynolds, who was in excellent condition, died of an apparent heart attack early Saturday after jogging from his home a half-mile away to visit his children, said his ex-wife, Susan Reynolds. He flew P-3 Orion patrol planes in the Navy and became a commander by the time he was 40. Reynolds also had been a catapult officer on the USS Abraham Lincoln. His last post before retiring in November 2004 was as commanding officer of Navy Recruiting District San Antonio. He currently was working with an independent government contractor as an intelligence analyst. Offered work in Washington, D.C., Reynolds turned it down because the family had set roots in San Antonio since arriving five years ago, Susan Reynolds said. "We had moved around so many times that after Kevin retired, we decided to stay here because it's such a great family town," she said. A football and rugby player in college, Reynolds coached basketball, baseball, soccer and flag football. He'd been a volunteer coach at the Mays Family YMCA for several years. "Kevin really believed that team sports was the best way to learn about being a team player and participating in a team," Susan Reynolds said. Though Reynolds was devoted to family, work and sports, he also put in time as a hospice volunteer, Susan Reynolds said. "That was important to him, too," she said. Born in Washington, D.C., he was one of eight children.

REEVES, George R. uhu@whidbey.net "...March 6, 1969 VP-31 RP-07 P-3B Bureau Number 152765 crashed at NAS Lemoore, California. I was also scheduled to be on that flight. As I recall, I reported to the duty office to pick up my box lunch about 0430 and was told that instead of a "RADIO/OBSERVER" FAM, the flight was rescheduled for a "Pilot Trainer". We, about 7 or 8 of us (can't remember the number for sure), had been bumped from that flight to attend a GSE class. Upon returning to the classroom (about 10:00 a.m.) from a smoke break, the instrutor said "you all were supposed to be on RP7, weren't you? It just crashed - every one was killed". I believe, again not really sure, that Dwane Yoder (went to VP-40 "Radio Operator") was also origianlly schedule to be on that FAM flight. I went on to VP-19.

Must have forgotten to secure it; VP-19 NAS Iwakuni, Japan - Nose gear colapsed on landing (both nose tires blew on a night take off) The crew had to wait for daylight to confirm that both tires blew. CO suggested that the crew bail out before doing a foam landing. The crew's COMMENTS "*7#@^%" could be heard on the maintenance control radio in the back ground. They did eat all of their "unprepareds" (breakfast/lunch/dinner and most likely all the PBJ) while burning off fuel; and VP-6 NAS Cubi Point, Philippines "DITCH" (AT2 Carver and I were standing at the top a P-3 boarding ladder) watched them make the turn to Grandy Island.

We were permanently deployed to Naha, Okinawa in 1956, and flew continuous patrols of the Taiwan straits, until way after I left, which was in Nov. 1957. I was the pilot of the P2V that collected 5 Marine AD's, during a typhoon in the Fall of 1957. I have seen photographs of that mess in several magazines.

REYNOLDS, AT2 Joe E. jreynold@usit.net "...I served with FASRON-104 starting about September 1959 until the squadron was disestablished. We then became the Aircraft Maintenance Department at NS Rota, Spain. I departed NS Rota, Spain in March 1962 for discharge so I was there approximately 30 months. I cannot remember if FASRON-104 disestablished in 1960 or 1961, but it seems that the disestablishment ceremony took place during the summer months. I think the last FASRON-104 CO was Commander Reed. I remember that he was a pleasant pipe smoking fellow and enjoyed flying the squadron R4D's. FASRON-104 shared the big hangar with VQ-2 and we maintained AT, AE, AD, AM, AO, & PR shops which were used by the deployed VP squadrons. VA and VF squadrons visiting NS Rota, Spain also used these spaces. VQ-2 maintained their own spaces, but occasionally used ours. There was always an active duty VP squadron at NS Rota, Spain and occasionally a reserve VP squadron would do their two weeks active duty here. FASRON maintained a pool of aircraft (mostly A4D & F8U) that could replace planes that might be lost by the sixth fleet carrier squadrons. FASRON-104 had two R4D,s and three SNB's that were used by us and also others who might have use for them. When the sixth fleet was in port at Marseilles or Barcelona, we always sent an SNB up there for their use. During the time that I was there, I remember seeing the following Navy plane types on the flight line: P2V-5F and P2V-7, P4M, WV-2, A3D, A3D-2Q, A4D, AD-6, AD-5Q, F3H, F8U, F4D, FJ-3, R4D, R5D, SNB, and occasional Air Force transient planes C-119, C-124, F-101, F-102 & F-104. The first F4H and A3J planes that visited NS Rota, Spain was probably in 1960 or 1961 and these were in route back to the states after having been shown at the Paris Air Show. Most of the people that I remember worked in either the AT or AE shops. Some of the persons that I remember are AT2 Pedro Rodriquez, AT1 Harold Pasour, AQ1 George Bagshaw, AT3 Richard Kimmet, AE3 Stokes, AE3 McArdle, AT1 Troy Allen, ATC Nagorski, AE3 Forrest McKenzie, AKAN Robert Carpenter, AE3 A. A. Rende, AK3 Richard Jenkins, MR2 R. Sanford, AT3 Gonzales, LT Ray, LT Hansen, and several other faces that I cannot remember their names. I remember witnessing, along with several others, a spectacular crash of an F8U. I think that it was from VF-94 (maybe VF-74?) and they were imitating the Blue Angels. This F8U was flying at low altitude inverted over the runway and for some reason he nosed directly into the runway. There was a huge fireball and there was literally nothing left of the pilot or plane. If anyone out there reads this and remembers me, let me hear from you..." [01FEB2003]
