ماذا ستفعل

Guests will meet me at Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum shoreside. You will need to buy your individual tickets for admission to Patriots Point, www.patriotspoint.org/. When our tour is over you may tour the ships and self guided tours on the ships. As I lead them down the pier to the USS Yorktown (CV-10) I will give a brief discussion and answer questions about the development of US Navy aircraft carriers and their success in World War II. Once we reach the flight deck of Yorktown, I will talk about the air war in Vietnam and answer questions. The air war situation in Vietnam lead to the establishment of the Navy's Fighter Weapons School or Top Gun. I will lead my guests to an F-8 Crusader fighter and explain its development, use and its record in the Vietnam War. Next we'll move to the F-4J Phantom and discuss its development and use in the Vietnam War and how Top Gun changed the outcome in the air war. The next aircraft we'll discuss is the F-14 Tomcat which was used in the movie Top Gun in 1986. We will finish at the F-18 Hornet discussing its history and how Top Gun is still in business today training our Naval aviators to win an air war. Anytime a guest has a question I will be glad to answer in as much depth as they desire. After the Topgun experience, you may visit the other ships and displays at Patriots Point.

I have a Masters in History. As a naval officer, I graduated from Navy Fighter Weapons School (Top Gun) in 1983 and the Naval War College. I worked at Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum for 17 years and am familiar with all aircraft located onboard the USS Yorktown (CV-10) leading tours almost daily during my time there. As a naval flight officer I have over 3000 hours in the E-2C aircraft with 415 arrested landings aboard our aircraft carriers at sea. I have landings on the USS John F. Kennedy (CV-67), USS Eisenhower (CVN-69) and USS Nimitiz (CVN-68). I also have flight time in the F-14 Tomcat, EA-6B Prowler and F/A-18 Hornet.

Waring is a wealth of historical information, much of which was anecdotal which made It even more interesting! Thank you for your service, Waring!

Butch was wonderful. He had in-depth knowledge of the aircraft on Yorktown. He was engaging, relatable, and completely authentic. My husband loves aircraft info and this was a delightful treat for him. As he was telling his stories, I knew my husband was loving it. We appreciated him sharing his history lesson, his perspectives and expertise. Direct quote from my husband, “Can you imagine having him for a history teacher? That would be awesome.”

It was great! Our guide is a navy veteran and history teacher so going into this we had a feeling he was going to be extremely knowledgeable about the battleship & fighter jets. It was obvious that he still held a passion for the Navy lifestyle he had thru his storytelling. I really enjoyed it.

If you’re interested in naval aviation I couldn’t imagine a better visit ( maybe the weather! ). Butch was a mine of knowledge, and really got it over well. I feel we could have spent twice as long and it still would have been enthralling.

Wow! We really enjoyed this experience! Butch is an amazing storyteller and we felt like we were right there with him flying all the Naval fighters. His insights added a whole different dimension to the tour. We were entertained and inspired and left wanting to know more. He was was very personable and friendly and was willing to answer any questions that we had. We couldn’t have asked for a better guide. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in Naval Aviation and Top Gun history!
