Both SAC and TAC. Did time at Carswell AFB, the Mighty Eigth Air Force, and time at Elemendorf in SAC.

KC135's out of Beale CA and Kadena AB Okinawa, with a few stop overs in Thailand, Taipei, and Angeles City for Typhoon evac's. Still remember prowling BC and Gate 2 streets. Those were the days and SAC still holds a special place in my heart.

Welcome guys to the group and I stand in awe from your service in the early days of The Strategic Air Command.

To error is human, to forgive was not SAC Policy!

I was in SAC from 1984 to 1989 @ KI Sawyer - KC-135 Nav, IN, Wign Staff

135Boom, have not seen that view of a B-52 in a long time - I was at Castle upgrading. We took it to the limit as the horizion was completely inverted - in the process the B-52 came off the boom, then went right back into contact and did not skip a beat. Others do not beleive me when I tell them how far we really could go!

I remember PRP from the staff days, I was part of the "A" team programing B-52 Weapons for Alert.

I was never in the USAF, but I am a SAC history buff.

I was up in Northern maine a few weeks ago. Took a side trip into Loring AFB. Quite a base, and a lot of it is still there. When I was standing near the Tower, I was thinking of the start of the movie, "12 O clock High". A lot of history up there. Too bad all that taxpayers money is going to waste. I will post a photo if I can figure out how to do it.

Davis-Monthan 1969. Sad sight seeing B-58 Hustlers coming in for retirement. Great view of U-2s taking off and appearing to go strait up until out of site.
