62-1788

Recommended Posts

62-1788 was an old MATS airplane. According to Lars' booklet, it was at Dyess in 1967 and at Langley, but I'm not sure that's right. Sometime in 1964 or 65 TAC and MATS swapped a number of airplanes because the MATS airplanes had so much flying time. Dyess got some more former MATS airplanes in 1968 when MAC phased out the last of its C-130s.

I thought that in ~68 (after May, when we came back to Dyess from TDY to SEA/Clark) that we adsorbed a complete Mac squadron (all their planes, crew & maintainers) from McGuire and it became the 348th?

It was nice seeing some familiar tails in there. 7894 and 1808 were some great planes that I crewed. 1789 was my first assigned aircraft as an airman and 7894 was also special as well. Kind of sad seeing all those great aircraft sitting there as well as the T1's in those shots. I will be seeing sand very soon and probably will fly the last of the E-Model missions in the box; kind of sureal. Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and a great New Year!
