To heck with the officers, that ain't the Soviet Navy. Where are the Chiefs?
Of course every land based Navy flight line I was ever on, or saw photos of, was a mess compared to Air Force ones. Most especially Air National Guard facilities. You can usually eat off the hanger floor there.
The Marines at Naval Air Station Millington outside Memphis, hundreds of miles from the nearest seashore or aircraft carrier, nevertheless persistantly referred to their *hanger floors* as the *hanger bay* or *hanger deck*.
Asking for the Marine officer or NCO in charge as *the head Marine* was another real fun way of making pals with them.
