I'm back in Sicily visiting. I try to visit every year, I have friends here. The city and the base have changed so much over the years. I really don't care to spend time in Catania. The city isn't as nice as it used to be. I spend more time on the mountain and in Taormina.

Hello shipmate from the VR-24, I do right now a study of the C-2A Grumman Greyhound with all their NAVY squadrons. Also the VR-24 will get a chapter. But I will mention also the other equipment that went with the VR-24 like the C-2A Trader as well as the CT-39 Sabreliner. See images below. But more the C-2A.
If you have stories of material to share, please contact me. Email address at my web page or here on the contact link.







Much more can be seen on my web page at . Thanks for your time, Boerries
