  9. Bill, All that's on the back is "Sept '70".... The same pictures I've posted....(USAF product) The picture with me has no date at all... (BX photo shop) The wife was there the second week of Oct '70.. (Found hotel bill, VNP 15000) I think I made two, maybe three trips to the site with tools and parts... Didn't get to see the blow job... I would like the name of the base and tail number if you ever get it figured.. (90 deg. and clear here today) Thanks for the memories.. NanJac...........;-)
  10. I will dig thru the pictures again to see if the photos were dated.. The wife came to Saigon in the fall of '70... She says I talked about the job while there.. Give me a few days to dig............ NanJac.........
  11. Bill Lang.... I was part of the recovery crew from TSN.. We scabbed over the damaged area after removing most loose parts and if I remember right, it was "buddy started" and sent to the PI.. GTC and most of the hardware was removed, lines capped, tires changed and gear chained dn .. #1 had a prop blade blended.. #2 had fuel/oil lines damage.. The grayed image has me talking with the AP.. No hat.. I went on several recovery.. Yours was the most damage.. Almost suggested burning it.. What was the base and tail number of acft?? I pestered the VA until I got 10% for tinnitus. Mine was based on 20yrs flt line .. Jack DePue, Panama City Fl.
