There's just *gotta* be a buncha SAC-trained killers in here! Maintainers, operators, cops, comm troops, loggies, dirt-boys - all do their part to make sure that we can give whatever support the boots on the ground need!

Hi,
Started as a Flight Simulator tech, worked for the Air Force Museum for a bit, short stint as a PMEL tech, then C130 Flight Engineer. ATC, SAC, PACAF, AFLC, TAC, MAC, ACC, AMC. Ended at Pope AFB, so had a lot of contact with Airborne types.

Got to work with some of the best people in the world (and a few dud rounds).

Another SAC trained killer. '76-'04 Started as an Aircraft Maintenance Officer, got tired of working for a living and became a pilot! Flew BUFFs for 12 years. Did some time in Materiel Command near the end, then B-2 program and ended up at 8AF safety.

Thanks for putting up an AF area. Appreciate the thought!

Awful airplane patch Ohmygod Nebraska on the banks of the Misery River. With TDY's to Mildenhall. Finished my last year with TAC at Bergstrom in Austin loading film on RF4Cís after SAC changed the MOS requirement for their RC135 support.

I was enlisted.

1.) 1991-1995 Performed Aircraft Periodic Inspections (known as Phase-Dock or Iso-Dock) on E-3 AWACS at Tinker AFB. It happens that I was stationed at Tinker AFB when Timothy McVeigh bombed the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in downtown Oklahoma City (10 Miles away from base). Working hand in hand with the OKC Fire Dept., I volunteered to help with the search and rescue efforts. Rot in Hell Timothy McVeigh!

2.) 1995-1998 I was a Dedicated Crew Chief on KC-135R's at RAF Mildenhall. I went everywhere the aircraft went so I got to see a lot of Europe, Eastern Europe, Scandinavia and other parts of the world to include Turkey, Saudi, and Senegal.

Hmmm, 1482 rings a bell. I'll bet I flew her when she was a waterburning "A" model.

SAC will be back!


The best job I ever had was being the head boom at Central Flight Instructor Course at Castle.

Not many have been at the controls for this stunt...I mean demo!



20 of 24 years in SAC!

1482 was not a pretty jet but she flew more "code 1" flights than any other jet at Mildenhall. Great flier. Then I got stuck with 7979 and that thing was a pig. It always needed work.

Is picture #2 real? If it is, that is INSANE!!!!!

Oh yes, it is very real. The most I ever saw was about 120 degrees but we normally called it quits just a hair over 90.

Life is interesting when you are inverted with a B-52 pilot's nose only 25 feet from yours!

Here's the other guy's view

Yep, it's real. Been on the receiving end. Great fun. The key is the guy up front... if he's smooth the guy in back just has to fly his jet! What you don't realize from the picture is that they're at the top of a climb and they are getting ready to descend to the bottom of the manuever. Ahhh. The good old days.

No, I'm not a Native American language-speaker being used as a unbreakable code system... I was a 15W3. That means I talked about the wind, and the clouds, and the rain, and the fog that wouldn't go away.

1998-2001, 100 ARW, RAF Mildenhall

2001 - 2004, ESC, Hanscom AFB

Of course, the Air Force provides all the weather support to the Army, with the exception of Arty-Met, so all USAF weathermen get some basic Army training.
