#AvGeek Goodness:

This is a video for the 50th anniversary of the first flight of the C-2A Greyhound. The COD’s first flight took place on 18 November, 1964. Since then, the aircraft and its crews have supplied the carrier fleet with high priority logistics. This video shows some amazing insight into the mission of the COD as well as the challenge and thrill of flying the COD.
