Naval Air Station Whidbey Island, Washington

 

Supply Department - Fuel Division - Grumman A-6 Intruder - Retired in 1997

 

Whidbey Island Naval Air Station (NAS) Oak Harbor Aircraft Display
Static aircraft displays were dedicated in September, 2007, just outside Naval Air Station, Whidbey Island, and the City of Oak Harbor, Washington. The aircraft display is in recognition of the accomplishments of the men and women who have served at NAS Whidbey Island.
An EA-6B Prowler, BuNo 158036, has the insignia of Electronic Attack Training Squadron (VAQ) 129 Vikings, the only EA-6B training squadron for the Navy and Marine Corps, so every EA-6B pilot has been through that program. The names on the aircraft represent four former VAQ-129 commanding officers who have made lasting impressions on the EA-6B community.
A second aircraft, an A-6 Intruder, BuNo 152907, has the logo for the Attack Squadron (VA) 145 Swordsman. It also bears the name of two members of NAS Whidbey Island who have made their impact on the A-6 community.

During WW2, there was a Naval Air Station(NAS) located at Weeksville, NC. Has anyone ever seen a patch for NAS Weeksville?

Aloha Fritz,

 

I've never seen anything for NAS Weeksville but there should be something out there as it wasn't closed until 1957.

 

Thank you Salvage Sailor for your response. A few years ago I lived directly across the Pasquotank River from WW2 NAS Weeksville (currently occupied by a LTA blimp mfg.) but was never able to id any type of shoulder sleeve insignia.

Naval Air Facility Annapolis (NAF Greenbury Point, Annapolis MD) The US Navy's first naval aviation base was established in 1911 at Greenbury Point, across the Severn River from the US Naval Academy. Annapolis became the home of naval aviation, having both the first naval air station and the first flight from a naval air station to add to its illustrious history.

Apologies if this is posted to the wrong thread.

This Japanese made jacket patch was for the Fuji Fins, a U.S. military personnel skin diving club at Atsugi. They are mentioned in 1962 Stars & Stripes article as having assisted in training Japanese policemen in skin diving rescue and recovery.
