A models -- YJ - Lockbourne (35th TAS from the 347th TAW) from 66-77 

Go here for complete listing: http://www.c-130.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=74&t=51257&p=348377

 

YJ was 35th TCS/TAS of the 374th TCW/TAW at Naha AB, Okinawa in 1966 until I left in Oct. 1968.
Here is a copy of the correction I sent in:

I was assigned to the 21st TACS/TAS at Naha AB, Okinawa 1967-1968. The following tail codes were used:

YD 21st TAS from 1958-1971 Naha, Okinawa
YJ 35th TCS/TAS 1963-1971 Naha
YP 41st TCS/TAS 1965-1971 Naha
YU 817th TCS/TAS 1966-1971 Naha

All were under the 51st Fighter Interceptor Wing until transferred to the 374th Troop Carrier Wing/Tactical Airlift Wing. The change from Troop Carrier to Tactical Airlift happened in 1967

Thanks, I was trying to identify the unit that moved a buddy of mine off Duong Dong after they shut down the radar post there.  I couldn't get the tail number. Heck, Sonny it might have been your bird. Here is one of our CCK birds landed long and stuck in the sand

The picture with the YJ  on the tail could have been my bird, as my squadron was the 35th TAS. at Naha.  The same squadron Sonny wishes he would have been in!!!
