50th Anniversary

Recommended Posts

Today is the 50th anniversary (Nov. 24,1969) of the date my plane, C-130A tail number 56-0533, was shot down over Laos during a Blind Bat flare mission.

I remember when that happened. By that time I was at CCK but I think I was on a CRB input when I heard about it. 

It brings back old memories doesn't it?  

Makes me remember the 40 missions I was on the year before at that same month, and not even worrying about one of those 37's or 57's ever hitting us. Almost nightly.  Being young and dumb helped though.😀

That old bird lived a long time and flew a lot of miles/hours before that night though.
