Almost Home

Hangar bays essentially empty
Save for some sailor’s autos being
transported back to Everett
And pockets of crates and pallets, small tractors and
APU’s (auxiliary power units- “portable” electric
power for jet)

Small games of football, rugby and soccer break out
An impromptu invisible joggers’ track surfaces

Much less formal activity with the air wing gone

One senses the excitement of arriving
home soon

One day and a wake up to home port in Everett

Emotions are building, soon to be with families and friends after
seven months away

The mood is intoxicating – almost palpable
