Darci A. Asher of VC-7 had been flying the TA-4 for seven months at Naval Air Station Miramar when Navy artist Christine Cancelli caught up with her. Cancelli commented that Asher's was "a very exciting job, and a demanding one, physically, she's holding her own in the pits." In the painting, Asher has just directed this TA-4 to a landing and is going through the procedure following a flight.
