  1. I was reading about how the Coast Guard would paint a pot leaf on the stack of the ship every time they made a pot bust. It reminded me of how some of the crew chiefs would paint little kites under the pilot's side window every time we hit one. The small fire bases had the wire right at the end of the runway. The VC could fly a kite with little nuts or nails tied on them right at approach level to try to get them sucked in an intake. They were almost impossible to see at night. Difficult to avoid even in the daytime. Don't think I have seen any pictures of a 130 with a little line of kites painted under the side window. Just something that came into my mind without really thinking about it. I am sure some of the crews from Det 1 have seen the little kites painted on the side of the planes.

  3. Looks like most everything is working again. It is a lot of work to keep a forum going.
  4. It can only redirect if we had the index page bookmarked. If we bookmarked somewhere else to save steps it wouldn't redirect. It will just come up with URL not found.
  5. The forum will not allow me to post the news clipping pages. You can find the news clippings from the Doc Jensen Story at : http://www.tanwater.com/834/det1-pg4.html And http://www.tanwater.com/834/det1-pg5.html I can testify to the fact that every plane over An Loc came back with bullet holes. I was there. Saved these news clippings from the Det 1 Report. These 2 pages were on Doc Jensen story. Other news clippings I saved are at - http://www.tanwater.com/834/dex2.html#line3
  6. Copy the link in the first post and paste it into the browser address. It will take you to the pictures.
  7. I have had the same problem.........
  8. The American Legion Post I belong to has a ceremony at the county Veteran's Cemetery every year on Memorial Day and Veteran's Day. On those days the names, dates, which military service, and which wars if any are read off for all veterans who were residents of this county and died since the last ceremony. DAV, Boy Scouts, and some other organizations also have a part in the services. It ends with 21 gun salute for all the veterans who have passed away and taps. The ceremony is usually attended by at least several hundred people. I have crew wings and my son got crew wings. He was FE on E3 AWACs out of Tinker. He served in middle east.
  9. I have no idea what the tail number is on this aircraft. It must be one of the A models we turned over to the Vietnamese just before we left there in 1972 - 73. We were flying all E models at that time and I am not aware of any A model that was left at Khe Sanh intact. This aircraft is said to be on display at the Khe Sanh War Memorial currently. The pictures were taken by an ADV Motorcycle rider who bought a small Vietnamese motorcycle in Hanoi and rode it all the way to Saigon taking pictures along the way. He and his wife spent a month making the trip. Not sure if you have a record of this aircraft or what the numbers are. These pictures are fairly recent. The person taking the pictures knows nothing about tail numbers or types. He was simply taking pictures of the static displays at the Memorial.
  10. It cost me 2 stripes and a fine. I left the Malibu in Florida and got the blue Honda when I got to CCK. Long ago when I was young I had a little bit of a wild streak. As I got older I mellowed out and found that high lift cams and shotgun pipes attract unwanted attention from the PoPo. I now ride very sensible personal transportation which does not get me in so much trouble. The black Harley is my current personal vehicle.
  11. I had probably been at CCK a year when that picture was taken. Arrived at CCK with only one stripe due to a misunderstanding with the Pope AFB Security Police concerning the operation of a 64 Malibu on base.
