Not speaking for him, directly, but I have a good source that said something to the effect -

He's gone into deep cover - I'll see if I can get him to make contact

California: Pilots Punished for Photo Op


Published: December 23, 2010

A Navy crew has been disciplined for dipping two helicopters into Lake Tahoe to take photos for the squadron’s Facebook page. Two Navy instructor pilots were permanently stripped of flying status, and two student pilots will have to repeat training because of the Sept. 13 incident. Repairs to the helicopters cost $505,000. A Navy report, released Wednesday, says the crew tried to hover the Seahawk helicopters just above the water in Emerald Bay. Both aircraft went into the water but were able to regain altitude and land. There were no injuries.
