Flight of the airsick lobsters

from Air & Space Magazine

According to author William J. Onderdonk: Naval aviation is famous for its many traditions, and planners obviously took some of them into account when they built an air station on the coast in Brunswick, Maine, where live chicken lobsters were plentiful and cheap. In the fall of 1958, I flew Lockheed P2V-5 Neptunes in a Navy anti-submarine patrol squadron based at Naval Air Station Chincoteague, Virginia. I volunteered to fly a "training flight" to NAS Brunswick, and of course since we happened to be up there, we intended to return with 150 to 200 chicken lobsters, to be divided among the pilots. more
