This was the second night patrol in the 1998 SCUL season. It also documents the only Republican only to ever ride a chopper. SCUL Recruit Marcus did well his first time, successfully testing every able ship in the fleet. This was also a first official ride for Recruit Tex, and she invented some new flying stunts: The Pilot to Bombadeir Seat Switch, and the Flying Trike. It took a long time for the ship to leave the hanger.
Crack joined up with the fleet around 22:30 Earth Time, and we finally managed to turn our keys and hit the launch button. We traveled to the Harvard Constellation, then the Central Constrellaion, where we ran into Nails and Hu-Man Peter. We communicated and departed. Later it was realized that CBU Peter was AKA Peter Choice, supspace communications agent for Earth Transmitter WZBC. We traveled home without incident, for some fighters had training exercises in less than five hours.
