  1. Grapevine, just a bit west of 13R at DFW. Before this I lived in SE Louisiana for 30+ years, so anything at NAS N.O. was always a hometown unit for me.
  2. Thanks, Bob. In doing some more digging, I found an accident report on 58-0721 in Jan 1975 at NAS New Orleans, and that gave me a piece of the puzzle to work on. I was also able to back track through 706th Fighter Squadron history to learn that the unit had previously been your 706 TAS. I'd only ever known and associated the unit with A-10s in the 80s/90s.
  3. I have a question about tail codes. 58-0725 is pictured in the galleries (specifically 3520h) in the green/green/tan-brown camo with AFRES NO on the tail, and a distinctive shape of Louisiana in tan near the top of the tail. My question is this: was this a reserve unit stationed in Louisiana and/or New Orleans? I've noticed this same combination of "AFRES, "NO", and Louisiana" on more than one airframe. I've never seen mention of an AFRES C-130 unit stationed in New Orleans before. Can anyone shed a little light on this for me? Thanks in advance.
