I arrived from TSN in summer of '71... Took over the Field Maints branch... Lived in Grundisburg most of the time... Was there watching when the Sicorsky(?) crew crashed a -53B doing a loop.. Going to the Farnsbrough air show with it... Spent a lot of time at the Aero Club as mx and duty pilot... Carried F-4 aircrews back and forth to the Bitburg alt. chamber.. Took terminal assignment to Tyndall AFB Fla. for retirement.. Spent seven years in USAFE and hated to leave each time...

Wasn't DET 14 at Keflavik part of the 67th? If so I worked on your 130s and the Jollys when I was in the 57th FIS Jun 77-Jun 78. Apparently they didn't assign any avionics types to the Det and we did all the work as transient acft. They didn't even have Air Force vehicles; used Navy "loaner" trucks.

I was in the 67th at Woodbridge from 1985 - 1992. I crewed HC-130N 69-5826 "Da Hacker" the entire time I was stationed there. Kind of sad if you look at the base on youtube and facebook, Google, etc. Some of it is still in use but a lot of it is overgrown. It's amazing what 17+ years of neglect can do to a base. Bentwaters is worse....

69-5820 -

69-5823 - Skippy

69-5826 - Da Hacker

69-5827 - The King

Later, we received:

We traded 5831 for:
