Memorial Picture "...JOHNSTON, AMCS Brian "Pig Farmer"...Brian "Pig Farmer" Johnston was an Airframer extraordinaire and the FE Deluxe. They've only made a couple of those. He flew for VP-64 (twice), VP-67, VP-91, VP-62, RESPATWING, HC-85, and VR-58. He was the most laid-back FE I have ever known, and one of the best friends you could ever want. He died in June, 2005 of natural causes; albeit at a very young age. Brian would lay some FE knowledge on you, and no matter how far behind the power curve you (I) might have been, he would never make you (me) feel stupid. He posessed no ego whatsoever, and once he put on khaki, he never forgot where he came from. True to that credo, he always tried to pull others up to where he was. In every respect, he was a true Chief and Blue Card FE. More importantly, he was a friend. Pig Farmer is sorely missed by all of those who had the opportunity to know him..."

PAGE, LCDR E. T. III etpage@cotullaairport.com "...I served in VP-22 from 74-77 (Crew 4 initially, then Crew 12). The people and experiences during these years were the best ever, and enriched my life beyond description. The places we went and the things we did are almost surreal as I look back on them, but we know they really happened and we were a part of history in the making. On the lighter side, I still enjoy remembering back to those "man-eating crabs" on Diego Garcia, as Time magazine described them, and so many other things that the media was so clueless about that we did and experienced on a regular basis. My fondest memories include being a part of Crew 12; what a great crew. What I learned during this tour has served me well throughout my life. After leaving VP-22, I instructed in T-28's in VT-31 (77-78) at NAS Corpus Christi, Texas which was FUN as well as rewarding. Later, I was able to fly in the Reserves (VP-67, NAS Memphis, Tennessee) a few years, but unfortunately I got too busy to stay in. I'm still spending my time managing an airport business in South Texas these days. It would be nice to touch base with former squadron mates if you are so inclined.

Unlike a P-3, it had no air conditioning unless you had the hatches open, and no heat most of the time. Chief Pools used to tell us "Unless it's on fire - stay with the airplane. It'll get you on the ground when others won't." I asked him one time how to be sure there was enough oil in the 3350s. He said, "Son, if if it's still coming over the wing in flight there's enough oil in 'em." You've kindled some great memories of fun times (if hard) times aloft. Thanks!..." [03JUN2003]

We will be planning a Reunion soon and we have just become active with the Mid Atlantic Air Museum which now has old PL-09 SP2H 145915. Hope all old VP-67 Shipmates will kick in when we announce the next Reunion on this website and get the word out. AVCM Tom Banning at Federal Express is putting together a squadron master recall and I will get him to sign onto this website so you can contact him. I am still drilling at NSA Mid-South in the VTU helping out the carrier augment units and former chairman of the Mid-South Guard and Reserve M-16 Rifle Tournament just so my free time doesn't go to waste. Hope to hear from old Shipmates and I will help you find others. Fair winds and following seas..." [07APR99]
