  1. Thought this video was interesting. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Evhrk5tY-Yo&feature=youtu.be
  2. What I was told is he grabbed the one handle by mistake. Trying to pull himself forward to see the hole the pin went in to on the other side. Trying to put the seat pin back in. This was a backshop guy who didn’t work the line.
  3. Howard the first couple days of Just Cause.
  4. This picture was taken at La Aurora airport in Guatemala City. Around 87 or 88. It was a great TDY till we had an NDI E-6 eject in the chocks after an incentive flight. The canopy almost took me out as it flew off and landing off to the side. The seat went up and about 100 feet forward. Landing on top of the guy still strapped in. He didn’t make it
  5. Some interesting patches for sale. https://pizzastrike.bigcartel.com/ Especially the ANG and AFR ones.
  6. Yes I was at Howard from 84 to 90. Started out with a few O-2As and UH-1Ns. In 85 we got rid of those and got 20 OA-37Bs. After the Just Cause they gave away all of the aircraft. And closed the 24th TASS.
  7. OA-37B My favorite aircraft to work on.

  9. Until Tech. Sgt. John Chapman's heroics on Afghanistan’s Takur Ghar mountaintop in March 2002, this was the only known photo of a Medal of Honor action taken while it was under way. Joe Jackson (center, top) had just put his C-123 down to pick up the combat control team airmen. The runway is littered with aircraft wreckage from a CH-47, Cessna O-2, C-130 and UH-1.(DoD) https://www.airforcetimes.com/news/your-air-force/2019/01/14/air-force-legend-medal-of-honor-recipient-joe-jackson-dies-at-95/
