CROSSTIES • NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2017 16 RTA CONFERENCE USS Midway Tour San Diego Zoo Tour RTA members were treated to a special behind- the-scenes tour of the historic USS Midway during the Annual Conference. On hand as tour guide was noted author Scott McGaugh, author of "Midway Magic" and "USS Midway – America's Shield." A trip to San Diego is incomplete without a visit to the San Diego Zoo. RTA members enjoyed special behind-the-scenes tours of the zoo, where they enjoyed interactive visits with animals not typically available to regular visitors. Word is out that the RTA group is visiting so the some of the resident hippos decide to take a look. What a sweet "kitty!" The RTA group poses in front of a fighter jet while attending a tour of the USS Midway. Buddy Downey gives a thumbs up in the cockpit as Howard Tomlinson looks on. Susan Tomlinson also gives the "all clear" from the cockpit. The USS Midway sits proudly in the San Diego Bay. Some of the RTA ladies take time out for a quick photo-op. One of the San Diego Zoo's occupants smiles for the camera. Kathleen Broadfoot and the local giraffe have a few things to discuss. Mike Diraimondo enjoys petting the zebra on the zoo tour. Looks like Pattie Parrett is enjoying her conversation with a local flamingo.
