      No sweat. I've seen it before. We even had a whiskey compass error that was caused by a ferrous screw in the window frame.

      Ken, do you remember the names of the 2 electricians from CCK who were TDY to Naha in the Sept. 1968 timeframe? I made the mistake of walking thru the clipper room of the airman club as they were celebrating the birth of a child doing shots of VO with Heineken chasers!  I was off alcohol for a few months after that one! Still "GREAT" memories, can't place the names anymore.

      You can send a copy of it to:

      www.bmtflightphotos.af.mil/

      They will post it for all to see. You may find someone looking for the photo or they may even want the original and offer it up themselves. I have checked the site and they do not have a copy of this flight. I am sure they would love to have at least a copy. It is an interesting site to peruse. I hope this helps, Sonny
