  15. 913thAG is also there with the C-130J schoolhouse. This includes the 327TAS that used to be at Willow Grove Air Station in PA but got BRAC'ed in 2007. Former 913th/327th Reserve Air Tech member WGARS,PA
  16. 345th moved to Yakota after Kadena then the 345TAS got swaped to Keesler where they are now..
  17. NAS Willow Grove had transport /Cargo C-97's with the 111th MAG Penna ANG which moved from Phola Intn Airport to NAS Willow Grove and used the Air Force Reserve ramp and station.
  18. C-130A 54-1640 was a "Snub-Nose" that was later at Willow Grove ARF,PA in 1975. I flew that a few times as an Flt Engineer. It flew great during a Europe run we made from the US. EFLTatCCK
  19. May Zim rest in peace. He was my Flight Engineer Instructor when I was a C-130A(54 models) Flight Engineer at Willow Grove Air Reserve Station with the 913th/327th. He was always knowledgeable and helped any of the engineers if they had problems. I flew with him many times on our A's. He also went to Desert Shield/Storm with us in 90/91 . After retiring he flew C-130A's with a Fire tanker unit that flew in Europe and also he worked as a contract civilian airplane mechanic in Japan. Hope Zim is still flying a C-130 in Heaven. Our thoughts go out also to Mrs. Zimmerman. Vince Acquaviva
  20. It's good to see that the 327th AS is flying again. We had a great history both in missions and flying safety at the 913th Air Wing at Willow Grove Air Reserve Station. The First Joint Reserve Base on the East Coast since 1959. Vince Acquaviva former 327th member
  21. Randy, it's great to hear from you after all these years. Welcome to the C130 site. I been in touch with with Tom Norton that RE-Started the E-Flt Roster of members. There are some pictures of Brewers 515 in the dirt on the A/Amer site. You and Bob Wellman were good crew chiefs together on 62-1859. I think 1859 is still flying and belongs to another country. I saw it a few years ago at Mc Guire when it was on the way across the Atlantic. Thanks to you. You were the person that got me interested in E-Flight. 1859 was a Great Acft and the Thanks go to You and Bob. Keep in touch with Tom and I. Vince Acquaviva ( "Shorty") E-Flt
  22. There was also a Snub-Nose C130A ,a 1954 A model 54-1636 that landed at Midway island in the early 70's. The Acft was on a ferry mission from the US Conus ,then Hickam AFB to Vietnam for the VNAF. A fuel transfer problem in- flt caused fuel to transfer from the left wing to the right wing. A later mod was a crossfeed seperation valve on all early "A" Models. The Acft had both engs on left side flame out and on Emerg Landing at Midway #3 also flamed out during landing.
  23. ​This was 63-7777(Bunch Of Seven's) at CCK near Delta Row near the Flt Line Snack Bar in the 70's when I was at CCK. EFLTatCCK
