  1. Short answer is yes. I was stationed at Lockbourne from ‘68 to ‘69 and as our “A” models were sent back for refurb and updates, they came back fitted with “CPI” mod. (Crash Position Indicator) if you look at the pictures in the “picture gallery” under my name, Tom C, you’ll see pictures to confirm this. I hope this is what your looking for. tom
  2. When this event happened, my squadron 39th TAS out of Lockbourne was TDY to Rhein Main. That particular day our C-130A (55-0015) was on our way to Bitburg Germany to pick up a mini-gun to take to Wheelus for sighting. When we landed in Bitburg, our navigator informed us that he heard chatter from the Paris tower asking an aircraft to identify itself. Our navigator also told us he had heard that a C-130 had been stolen from Mildenhall. As we were waiting for the loadmaster to load our aircraft, I saw two F-4s take off. I’m not making any conclusions about what I saw that day. But found it interesting. Tom, 3rd wiper (assistant) crew chief.
  3. This may be slightly off topic and I apologize in advance. I was a crew chief on 56-0522 at Anderson AFB Guam when one of the Blind Bat “A” models came through and broke down for a #1 engine change. Since our engine shop didn’t have a spare engine ready, they “K” balled the engine from my plane. (sorry my engine was white on the bottom with green and tan sides LOL) And guess who they made to stay on the line until it was done? Since I was engine run qualified I had to complete the ops check. Sure was neat to set seat at night with all the instrument lights lite and looking out to my left thru (what I assumed was a heads up display) glass. This took place sometime mid summer of 1970. Our three aircraft “A” models were involved in “Operation Popeye” Two were always in country, Udorn, while one was back for repairs and maintenance. Tom C
