Patch

  • VF-102's first patch, the Winged Wolf, was in use by October 1952. The patch included: a blue circular design with a black winged wolf leaping diagonally from left to right in front of a yellow moon and over a red lightning bolt; and a blue sea depicted in the lower part of the circle. The wolf, lightning bolt, blue sea and circular insignia were outlined in yellow.
  • VF-102 Junior Officers also had an unofficial Roadrunner patch they wore on their flight jackets during the 1950s, the patch corresponded with the squadrons nickname of Road Runners which was adopted in 1949 and was probably linked to the popular movie cartoon introduced during that time.
    ;
  • After VF-102 was re-designated VA-36 in 1956 the Roadrunner patch was the patch of choice; and VA-36 officially adopted the Roadrunner patch after receiving its first A-4 Skyhawks in September 1958. One of the nicknames for the A-4 was "Heinemann's Hot Rod" and the "Supersonicus" logo on the patch is a play on the nickname and the Roadrunner movie cartoon. This patch is shown above.
  • After VA-36 was re-established a modified Roadrunner patch was approved April 6, 1987. The modified patch depicted a bird with a snake clutched in its talons.

  • † The specific date the squadron was assigned to Air Task Group 201 (ATG-201) has not been verified. However, it probably was in May 1955, the date the squadron deployed aboard Bennington (CVA 20) for a shakedown cruise to Guantanamo Bay.
  • ‡ Carrier Air Groups were re-designated Carrier Air Wings on December 20, 1963, hence, CVG-3 became CVW-3.

    US Armed Forces, European Stars and Stripes, Monday, August 19, 1963
    Lancaster. OH, Lancaster Eagle-Gazette, Tuesday. August 20 1963

    I remember it well. I was an LSO hunkered down in the catwalk below the LSO platform when the accident occurred. There was an A-4 with engine running just above us, and the tailpipe was over the platform keeping us in the catwalk. The launch had been cancelled, and the deck was being pulled forward to get ready for the recovery. Something went awry in pri-fly, and someone turned the deck lights on before the landing area was clear. All hell broke loose when that Demon landed into the still moving pack. There had been a lot of live ammo in the planes on the deck which hadn't been removed after the previous recovery, so rockets were cooking off and some other ordinance was flying all around the place. Worst chaos I have ever seen. I thought we were going to lose the ship when I saw that wall of burning JP spreading over the deck. I think there were 11 or 12 planes pushed over the side by Tilly because they were nothing but burnt out hulls. A night to forget, but the memory lingers on.

    We returned from the Med cruise aboard the Saratogo in July 65 so only had about 3 mos. at home and they were filled with SERE, China Lake with Alcorn to learn Shrike, and then car quals on the Enterprise. Barely time to catch our breath!!

  • The VA-93 planes do not show in this photo but the "Blue Blazers" found some deck space to display their unofficial nickname of "Blue Boozers".

    The plane with the "NH" tail code (147695) belonged to VA-36 at the time of the photo. Someone probably pulled a practical joke by painting "NH-301", instead NG-xx. The nose number has been botched up as you can see. And there are some changes and paintings on the national insignia star. The "NH" tail code is for CVW-11 (WestPac CVA-63 CVW-11 VA-113 A-4C from 19OCT65 to 13JUN66) and BuNo 147696 between 06NOV65 and 26MAR66 may have been/or intended to be, a spare, for VA-113 and Cubi thus painted her tail with the "NH" tail code.Or it simply may have been a joke.
    Photos from William T. Larkins

    Webmaster Note: 147696 history card offers that it was left at Cubi, 06NOV65, when VA-22 returned to the states in 1965, and from Cubi went to VA-36 on 26MAR66.

    Note:
    "I was in VA-93 in 1965 and we called ourselves the Boozers then."
    My friend who was in 93 in 1963 said they were using Boozers then.
    Steve Laughlin

    "I rode "Enterprise" back from her first WestPac/ V'Nam tour ... sent all the 'turn-around' pilots home ahead by 'magic carpet' ... thus I was aboard as we passed beneath the Golden Gate. Had just three months to turn over VA-94 to Jack Wynn, my classmate & XO, then move the family to San Diego, get the pre-department head training done, and be back aboard 'Tico' as Air Boss in the fall for two more tours ."
    Otto Krueger, Skyhawk Association.

Holden stooged about and after losing hydraulics and electronics and with the engine coming apart - eject ten miles in front of Intrepid. An alert crewman saw the chute and minutes later the Angel plucked Holden safely from the drink. The Skipper's Skyhawk was cannibalized and later scrapped.

The composition on the carrier during the deployment included the regular air wing, minus an F-14 and S-3 squadron, and a special Marine Air-Ground Task Force consisting of a Marine Corps fixed-wing and helo squadron and a company of Marines. The mix of units provided the carrier with the ability to project air and ground striking power ashore from a single deck.

    21 JUN 1966: VA-36 BuNo 147764 with CVW-9 aboard CVAN-65 on 22JUN66 as it passes under the Golden Gate Bridge returning from a WestPac Cruise.
    The VA-93 planes do not show in this photo but the "Blue Blazers" found some deck space to display their unofficial nickname of "Blue Boozers".

    The plane with the "NH" tail code (147695) belonged to VA-36 at the time of the photo. Someone probably pulled a practical joke by painting "NH-301", instead NG-xx. The nose number has been botched up as you can see. And there are some changes and paintings on the national insignia star. The "NH" tail code is for CVW-11 (WestPac CVA-63 CVW-11 VA-113 A-4C from 19OCT65 to 13JUN66) and BuNo 147696 between 06NOV65 and 26MAR66 may have been/or intended to be, a spare, for VA-113 and Cubi thus painted her tail with the "NH" tail code.Or it simply may have been a joke.

    Webmaster Note: 147696 history card offers that it was left at Cubi, 06NOV65, when VA-22 returned to the states in 1965, and from Cubi went to VA-36 on 26MAR66.

    "I was in VA-93 in 1965 and we called ourselves the Boozers then."
    My friend who was in 93 in 1963 said they were using Boozers then.

    "I rode "Enterprise" back from her first WestPac/ V'Nam tour ... sent all the 'turn-around' pilots home ahead by 'magic carpet' ... thus I was aboard as we passed beneath the Golden Gate. Had just three months to turn over VA-94 to Jack Wynn, my classmate & XO, then move the family to San Diego, get the pre-department head training done, and be back aboard 'Tico' as Air Boss in the fall for two more tours ."

    Grecian Ern" Laib flew Skyhawks for VA-36, and later served as the Skyhawk Association Treasurer.
    Ernest E. Laib passed away at his home on August 4, 2005. He is survived by his three children. He was buried at Arlington National Cemetery on August 31, 2005 at 9:00am with Military Honors.



    "Ernie started out as a white hat near the end of WW II. Turns out we both served on the Ticonderoga at different times but he was a plank-owner. I believe he said he reported aboard in early 1945. They set sail for the Pacific and operated in support of the island landings. He was aboard the day they were hit by 2 Kamikazes. He said those are the pictures you usually see on the History channel. One of them hit the bridge and killed the skipper plus most of the folks up there with him. I remember seeing a large bronze plaque on the island in rememberance of this event. Skipper's name was Dixie Lee Ray best I recall. I think Ernie said he had to wait almost 10 years before he was selected for flight training. Eventually, he became skipper of a squadron but I can't recall which aircraft. F-8's ?"
