Welcome to this episode of the Lessons from the Cockpit show! I remember Civil Defense drills as a kid in Elementary school living in the Los Angeles area of the 1960s. A horn would go off and we'd all dive under our desks. Russian ballistic missile submarines roamed both coasts of the US. Retired Navy Captain Frank Ellis tells the tactics, techniques, and lessons learned from flying the Lockheed P-2V Neptune Maritime Patrol and Anti-Submarine Warfare plane hunting Russian subs and intelligence collection "Fishing Trawlers" around the world during the 60s and 70s Cold War. Nuclear weapons are involved! Thanks to our sponsor , where a profile print of Frank's is available for the walls of your home, office, or hanger. Please share this and previous episodes of the Lessons from the Cockpit podcast with friends and loved ones found on my website at Thanks for listening and tune in next week for another episode of Lessons from the Cockpit.
