Callsign of the day

Callsign "Le Goof"

A-7's on USS Kennedy, '76-'77, in the Med - "The French Connection." We had a French exchange pilot, whose wife gave me that in honor of the Disney character, Goofy. My verbal observations of anything and everybody were meant to elicit laughter, and it obviously made a positive impression.
