I went through some older C-2A images and by suprise I found the VRC-40 DET 2 BuNo 162160 with the whole tail of 162177. BuNo 162160 lose a tail section on cruise in Italy. The picture was taken back in 2002 with LT Martin "Ricky" and LCDR ?? The right vertical stab came off in flight and they didn't realize till it landed. Found some loose rivets on the tail of 45 also and a couple of us stayed behind in Sigonella to fix that one as well and fly back over the North route through Scottland, Greenland, and Iceland.
