Lt Col Bill Hatfield Horseman #4

Recommended Posts

All, please keep Bill Hatfield in your thoughts and prayers.  Bill has been in the hospital and in and out of ICU for the past couple of weeks.  I spoke with him yesterday and let him know we are pulling for him.

Bill was Horseman #4 and flew C-130A 56-0473 (now at Castle Air Museum), in the "slot" position on the demonstration team and in the film "Hercules and the Four Horseman" 

Bill was "the kid", and at the end of the film hops into a Triumph convertible (or was it an MG?).  I think he told me it was the Wing Commanders secretary in the car with him.  Ahh the good old days . . .

Bill has been in bad health for a long time. He was on a scooter at least five years ago. Billy Mills is also in bad shape, if he's still around. So many have died that word doesn't always get out.
