One of the first (if not the first) planes my father ever flew. Dad was like a kid in the candy store that day we re-visited Midway. His 18 months in command of her are etched in our family's collective soul. We all have memories of our time with Midway, some very fond and some very concerned, considering the events that unfolded during his stint as CO.

A Magical Ship, Great Memories, and a Great Man and Father.
