Yakota C-130s in the 60's

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have the tail numbers of the C-130s at Yakota in the mid 60's? A friend was a crew chief in aero repair there and wishes he had the tail numbes. His name is Gary Carpenter.

Yokota was the home of the USAFSS C-130B-IIs into the 1970s. They kept at least one at Cam Ranh to monitor communications in Laos. The mission has long since been declassified, as has the similar mission at Rhine Main with A-models.
