The following is my account of an incident that I experienced as an Auto-Track Radar Repairman in the USAF. Names were either modified or omitted for the usual reasons.

I once wrote a story called "The Little Bird off Slea Head".  There is a certain allegory involved, a symbolism, but I'll let you decide how and where. If you haven't already read Part 1, I would recommend doing that now, or this second part will not make sense... The Little Bird off Slea Head (Part 2)        Did he...
