    The wing dexterity displayed when coming out of the water with that last fish was remarkable!

    I've been known to work a navel that well. Maybe not the greatest, but I rank right up there.

    So that's what I'm doing wrong.
    No wonder I never catch any fish.

    One of my biggest thrills was watching an adult Eagle teach a young one to grab fish out of the water, and it did it right alongside of our boat.

    These are amazing creatures.

    The Osprey is a truly rare combination of beauty, grace and lethality.

    Fantastic clip!

    I'm so glad this wasn't about Duke Cunningham.

    Respectifully disagree. The greatest Naval Aviator ever is my dad (callsign Soupy) because ... he's my dad. :supergrin:
