And what country can preserve its liberties if their rulers are not warned from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as to facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
Yeah, I have been involved with dropping several hundred of these, thus my handle. While flying down to an exercise in Puerto Rico the pilot spotted a pod of whales. We dropped a bouy and had an hours worth of fascinating sounds in our headsets. Miss those days.ReplyDelete
I was riding (supercargo) in a P-3C once when it dropped sonobuoys. That's as close as I got to it, but it was interesting.Delete
What kind of bouy is this? It looks a little more complex than the LOFAR, DIFAR and DICASS bouys I was associated with as an IFT in Big Red.ReplyDelete
