Squadron Cars: The Amazingly Liveried Rides Of Air Combat Units

It was always fun seeing the Garudamobile around Oak Harbor.

    Love the bus with the arresting hook. Perfect.

  2. I saw a few here and there. Mostly around NORVA. A few such vehicles were POVs and not squadron vehicles. One was driven by a current squadron commander at Oceana. He’d dolled his mid 60s T-Bird up with his squadron markings and ship.

    Back in the day I used to see a grey VW bug with aviation marking (including yellow rescue triangles and beware of jet blast warnings) drive around Virginia Beach near Oceana NAS and into NAS Norfolk. The driver looked like the CO or XO, not a JOPAmobile.
