This one says "CAG 69" (top), "THE EXPEDITIONARY CARRIER AIR GROUP - NOBODY HERE HAS A PROBLEM" along the bottom, with two F/A-18 Hornets (middle). Not a damn clue as to what this means!!

Price: $14.99

Size: 4" Diameter

Original: This is one of the cruise patches created by CV-66 for their 1993 deployment in support of Operation SOUTHERN WATCH. When a carrier goes through the Suez Canal, we all usually did a "Flight Deck Run" where you take turns running the perimeter of the flight deck throughout the entire transit thru the canal....about 9 hours.

158) CV-66 '100 Traps' Patch 158) CV-66 '100 Traps' Patch
Price: $12.99

Size: 3.9" Height

Original: This is from the Skipper Hagan's collection. From the USS America (CV-66), this is the "old" patch for 100-Traps onboard that particular boat. It has a 'thick' clear plastic on the back, so I'd estimate from the late '70's/early '80's era.

Size: 5" Height

Original: This is one of the cruise patches created by 'SHIPS COMPANY' for the USS Eisenhower (CVN-69) and Airwing SEVENTEEN (CVW-17) for their Med/Persian Gulf deployment. It doesn't have a year listed, so it could be one of several deployments, but since I was in Airwing 17 in 1995-1997 and the Sunday Punchers are not listed, I am guestimating that it is late '90s/early 2000's.

CVN-69 '100th Anniversary' Cruise Patch 242) CVN-69 '100th Anniversary' Cruise Patch
Price: $29.99

Size: 4" Diameter

This patch says "100 YEARS" (middle) and was created for the members of the ship/airwing that were onboard for their 1990 cruise. I've not seen this one before.... pretty cool!

The Iraqi and American flags are in the 'background', with the American Flag on the right (since we're always "RIGHT")!!

Price: $39.99

Size: 4.7" Height

Original: This is one of the two pretty RARE patches (in that you don't see much from this Airwing!) that we're listing this week from the Hagan collection. This patch was created for the USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) and their attached Airwing FIFTEEN (CVW-15), which was disestablished in March 1991, hence the rarity of a CVW-15 patch. It depicts the boat cruising through the Pacific with the different aircraft over the ship and says "WESTPAC 90" along the bottom. See the other rare CVW-15 patch below!

CVN-70/CVW-15 1990 'WESTPAC/IO' Cruise Patch 251) CVN-70/CVW-15 1990 'WESTPAC/IO' Cruise Patch
Price: $39.99

It depicts the boat cruising through the Pacific with the planform of the boat shown and says "WESTPAC / I.O '90" across the middle. See the other rare CVW-15 patch above!

CVN-70 1983 'WORLD' Cruise Patch 245) CVN-70 1983 'AROUND THE WORLD' Cruise Patch
Price: $19.99

Size: 5" Diameter

Original: This patch was was created for CVN-70 for their 1983 'AROUND THE WORLD' Cruise. It has that "old" feel to it (1983). To me, the carrier looks "odd", as there are no markings on the ship, etc, but since this is one of the originals, then "it is what it is". (hate that saying)

CVN-70 'WEAPONS DEPT' Patch 244) CVN-70 'WEAPONS DEPT' Patch
Price: $12.99

Size: 5" Height

Original: This patch was created for the WEAPONS DEPT of the USS Carl Vinson (CVN-70) and shows their "rating" insignia (crossed cannons) on an American Flag. Large patch, so probably created to be the centerpiece of a cruise jacket.

Price: $9.99

Size: 5" Diameter

Original: This patch was was created for one of the 'departments' of the USS Carl Vinson (CVN -70), the Carrier Air Traffic Control Center (CATCC) for their 1994 WESTPAC cruise. Their role is to be "Air Traffic Control" for the aircraft onboard their boat. Anything within 10 miles BETTER be talking with them, as that airspace becomes quite congested during launch and recovery, but the beautiful thing about carrier operations is that on a clear VFR day, it can all be done "COMM OUT"!! One helluva orchestration of aircraft and THE MOST FUN you can have ANYWHERE....but need a clear day!!

Price: $14.99

Size: 4" Diameter

Original: This is another of the cruise patches created by the USS Roosevelt (CVN-71) that is generic enough that any airwing or deployment could use it.
