The material presented here is basically an archived copy of the Hatwing I website of Chuck Huber that was until on or about 15 Octobr 2013 hosted by webtv at community.webtv.net/charles379/USNComposite/. Only the slightest changes have been made. These include the necessary alterations of the links and occasional minor changes in font size.

Because it is an archived copy, Chuck cannot access the files to make updates.

He now has a different email address from the one that appears throughout the files at various places, but he can be reached at the gmail address (cerebralhush@gmail.com) that appears at the bottom of this page.

US NAVY HEAVY ATTACK COMPOSITE SQUADRONS VC-5, 6, 7, 8, and 9

THE BEGINNING


This is a website to gather and publish information about the US Navy's first aircraft carrier based nuclear bomb carrying aircraft, and the personnel who flew, maintained and supported them. The period is from 1948 to 1956 - the dawning of the nuclear age and the Cold War, when atomic bombs and the threat of a nuclear war terrified citizens around the globe. One aspect of the "balance of power" was the US Navy's ability to launch atom bombers from aircraft carriers close to the enemy's shores.
