mark18mwm Posted October 2, 2013 Share Posted October 2, 2013 Larry, I was fortunate enough to be crew chief on 62-1819 my last year at Rhein-Main. My room mate was cc on 62-1828. As crew chiefs we where pretty sure as to what their mission and there capabilities. However, I went with 1828 on a 10 hr. nav. over water one time and they stumbled on something apparently of interest and they took some of their toys out to play with. Everything I thought I knew was nothing compared to what I saw that night. That was only with a "skeleton"crew on 28 witch was the least modified plane of the three, at that time. I can only imagine the things that went on with these guys on there daily missions. It was great to crew these birds as when I was on "trash haulers" (no offence, I loved them also) I rarely felt the satisfaction of knowing they had a real mission during peace time where as 1819, 1822, 1822 all did something "real world" and maybe a little more important.
