64-14854

Recommended Posts

Back in 8/06, someone sent me some photos of a model they made. They've been on my hard drive ever since. Haven't a clue who sent them, but it looks like a lot of work went into it.

Not sure when they painted the falling star on the tail, I got there in 82 and they were already painted. Here is 854 around 1985 on a TDY, Travis or McClellan.

Not sure about using the Fulton system to recover the satillites. Not to sure where the parachute would end up going or where it might catch on the plane. Lots of antennas there to get hung up on.

I got to work both systems at McCoy with the 55th. ARRS from January 1970 till June 71 at which time we moved to Hill AFB as the 1550 Training Wing. Really enjoyed the time om those birds.
