  1. Anyone here on the board serve at Clark with a navigator names William Simon III ? I am guessing during the 70's but possibly earlier... I recently came into possession of one of his flight suits and hoping to learn a little more about him and his time in the C-130 at Clark.
  2. This the season ! Anyone here take part in the Christmas Drop from Andersen in 1972 or 73 ? Happy Holidays !
  3. Fred, thank you for the reply ! Did you deploy with the normal personal equipment for the situation ? Flight Helmet, Survival Vest ect...
  4. During the conflict, were the USAF Tactical Airlift units alerted ot placed on a heightened state of readiness during this period ?
  5. Bob, Working on a modeling project CCK E and was wondering about a specific tail # you flew in early/spring 73 ? Robert
  6. Thank's, I think the Lion design was earlier hopefully can get conformation
  7. Can someone comment on which version of the 16th TATS squadron patch was used in the early 70's ? The Winged Lion or the Arrowhead ? Robert
  8. Bob, Thank You again for all the info and the reply .. ! Robert
  9. Bob, A few other questions ... I am sure this is, but is always nice to get confirmation from someone who was there. Correct 36th TAS for 72/73 as well ? Also other then the Vietnam/Cambodia airlift, did the deployed crews also fly the wings other missions ? The Klong Hopper, SEA Shuttle ( I think that is what it was call ) in the region. ( Okinawa, Guam, Korea, Taiwan ect ) .. Robert
  10. Larry & Bob, Thank you both for the reply's and info !! It helps a lot .. I am working on building a collection of the TAC C-130 that deployed or sent crews to SEA in 1972-73. Especially interested in early 73 and airlifts into Cambodia and the FOL at U-Tapao.. I already have era correct examples from the 37th, 38th, 61st, 772nd, 773rd. Hoping to find a nice older 40th TAS, I am pretty sure the sent awads crews to CCK/U-T to support the Easter Bunny force. Not sure about the other 2 Pope squadrons, the 39th and 41st .. Robert
  11. Did the 37th TAS use this design while with the 316th TAW at Langley in the early 70's ?
  12. Hello Joey, Thank's for the info and the link ! Would be great to talk with you sometime about flying with the 54th during those years ... How long did a typical mission from Andersen last ? Robert
