I would like to know how I can join this forum. Also, how do I get in contact with Lars? I am the daughter of Robert E. Wright, Jr. killed on February 20th, 1989 over Hurlburt. I am honored to read the comments made about my father as I know the man he was and still is in my heart. Thank you for your time. God Bless.

John, I was in the 3370 student squadron, jet over two school at Chanute from Nov. 66 to Mar. 67. Was sorry to read they'd closed the base. If anyone has an old 3370 "cookie button" they'd like to part with I'm interested. It's yellow with a black 70.

First state I remember pulling leading edge on ramp for trouble shooting. My acft 0636, remember when we had to report to the standby barracks to await call out to an aircraft, didn't work to well went back to assigned crews. Remember the night the C-133 caught fire on the ramp? Great time at Dover, wound up at McGuire with the big move to bring in the C-5 to Dover.
Went to collage on GI bill, spent 35 years in corporate aviation.

The very first flight I ever took on an Air Force plane was in 1974, a C-141 picked us up at Buckley ANG in Denver. My crew and I were nuclear weapons types stationed in Wyoming headed to Vandenberg AFB. What a flight, you know when you're 19 lot's of things are exciting. The crew let us up front and showed us around the plane...In 1992 my Air Guard wing at Memphis got C-141s and I got to fly on them fairly often...the thrill was always there...it's still my favorite transport...That plane just seemed to want to fly as oppposed to the C-5 that looked like it hated flying...

I was crew chief on several starlifters, but my last starlifter was 65-0252 and by far the most enjoyable plane to work on. When I first started crewing 252, there was not two panels on the aircraft that matched in color. Eventually, I was able to convince them to get it repainted. It had over a 96% launch reliability. A lot of memories that I cherish.

I was introduced to the C-141 in April 1968 when I climbed aboard one at Cam Ranh Bay for an unplanned trip home on emergency leave. Several stops, one route swap,and many hours later I landed at Dover AFB in Delaware. Bus ride to Philadelphia and a short commercial flight got me home to the Boston area. There were eleven of us passengers on that trip and it was a great ride (even though all of us were going home for generally sad reasons.) My second son was born 9 days later while I was home.

I'll never forget my trip on the Starlifter.

I'm sure we have. I was on several TDYs to Europe. Maybe we were on one together. Like the one to Greece to change an engine. Each shop took their good ole time ordering parts so we could stay longer.

I was on that flight that crashed at Iwakuni Japan in January 1987. Until last night the only picture I have seen of the crash was what appeared in the Stars & Stripes newspaper that same month.

The flight I was on actually originated from Clark airbase Philippines. I was flying back to my homebase when after several attempts to land at Kadena, we were diverted to Iwakuni. When we arrived there the weather was even worse But I remember being told we were low on fuel and it was land or run out. I remember hitting the runway hard and then it became bumpy and I figured we were off the runway. I know that one of the engines it may have been number four struck a fire truck that was parked along the run way. I then remember the plane turning sideways and I looked over at the passenger next to me and remember saying this isn't right.. There was a lot of screaming because there were families aboard who were flying space available. When the plane came to a stop and I made it to the door I noticed that you no longer needed stairs to get down the plane was tilted on its side to where you could just step down to the ground. I remember part of the plane was on fire, And being a security policeman in uniform I assisted one of the crew members getting passengers down through the door. We were eventually formed up in the field far enough away from the airplane in the event of an explosion and waited for help to arrive.

A funny story about 60177, the museum bird at Wright Pat: In 1973 I was the nav on the NOrton Rodeo crew. For 3 months we worked on and
d with that airplane and it was perfect. The week prior to the Rodeo, MX painted the airplane & finished it with poyurethane coating.. Ofcourse, when it rolled outside into the smoggy So Calif air, it turned yellow! So we went to the rodeo with the "flying banna".
