That's me, standing next to the drop console! This must have been taken 14 Nov 1970 while flying toward Typhoon Patsy. My first C-130 flight and first typhoon penetration, all on the same day. I didn't feel so good. 

I've never seen this picture before. Didn't remember anyone else being on the plane except me and the flight crew.

I was the crew chief on that flight. I only flew one typhoon mission.

I didn't keep any of my flying records so I had no idea of the date of that flight.  Thanks for filling in the blanks on the date and the mission. Since I was converting my slides to digital, I just assumed that it was either a flight back to Udorn or back to Guam. I should have realized that by the lack of people on board that it was the typhoon mission.

Glad you saw your picture!
