First aircraft I ever worked on right out of Tech School, from April 1975 to July 1979 at Charleston AFB as a Fuel Systems Tech. Got out of active duty and took an ART job at Westover ARB and worked C-123's, C-130B/E, and C-5A/B until I retired in January 2011. Can honestly say the 141 was the best airframe I ever worked on. Also remember changing the #4 main tank refuel valve on the (I believe) very first "B" model. Had one of our drop lights blow out on us in the tank, scaring the crap out of us.

I was fortunate to be an engine mechanic/crew chief on 4610 in 1990 prior to cross-training to be an FE. The Air Force treated me well so after the C141 retired I retrained to be an FE on MH-53s and CV-22s. Nothing will ever compare to the people, places and fun I experienced on the 141. Every day at 141pm I yell out the time so my co-workers never forget.

I am looking at my fathers pilot log book and it shows he was flying a C140A out of Korat in Thailand. The log shows he was receiving combat pay in January of 1971 flying this plane. Any idea of what missions that type of plane flew and what he might have been doing to receive combat pay as a pilot of the C140A?
Thanks,
Mark

The C-140 was a different plane than the C-141. C-140 was a business jet .. crew of 2, 10 passengers. If he flew this aircraft it would be likely he was flying a bunch of generals around. You can read about the C-140 by searching for "Lockheed JetStar" on Wikipedia. The "Combat pay" (aka Hazardous Duty pay) you reference was probably actually a "Combat Zone Tax Exclusion". Flyers could secure this by flying in the designated areas where combat operations were actually defined, but it is not the same thing as actual Hazardous Duty pay. You would be able to deduct a defined amount of your income for any month in which you flew in the 'combat zone'. A lot of folks who had the ability to control their flying schedules would try to fly into the combat zone on the last day of the month and out of it on the first day of the next month. You'd get two months worth of combat zone tax exclusion for 2 days of flying.

Thanks Mike,
The logs actually say combat pay and I was hoping someone from Korat that flew that plane would give some clues. I found a strange letter in some files and perhaps someone can shed some light?He was an Air Force pilot but had a letter from the "Department of the Army" dated 9/2/1970 with special instructions "Off Auth to perform flying duties as approved by CO, 70th Avn Det". He mentioned once he flew some small planes from Korat in and out of small remote airstrips by himself. He never talked about his time over there and was very vague. He only mentioned it once with prodding from me and said it was a high wing plane, but his flight logs have no record of this. His logs only mention the C140A.
Thanks again,
Mark

I was a C-141B Crew Chief assigned to the 62nd ISO Docks and Paint Shop at McChord AFB before I was reassigned to Rota Naval Station, Spain and Ramstein Air Base, Germany. I loved the 141 even her stubborn side. In Spain and Germany, I moved to the C-5A/B and C-17 before being shoved into the C-130 world. The C-141 will always be my first love, she is the first aircraft I worked on and I was saddened to see her retire. Just wish she could have worked more.

Great site. I just happened on it trying to show co-workers the C-141 at McChord. I was a three stripper sheet metal man working the C-124 nose docks on swing shift and also an Air Police Augmentee. I received notification to gather at the command post, was issued an M1 carbine and 30 rounds of live ammo. I was assigned to guard 0281 that night. It was a sad thing to see and be part of. During my duty that night the POL folks still pumped 1300 ( I do not recall if it was pounds or gallons) of fuel from the wing. I left McChord in Dec. 68, and went to CCK Taiwan. Again, working swing shift,a C-141 from McChord was taxiing in when it hit a C-130 propeller being towed along the taxiway. The civilian shop chief, Al Kamshaft flew over the following day to check it out. I was not able be part of the repair crew. From '76 to '84 I was at WPAFB, 4950th FMS on the west ramp. I worked all 3 of the C-141's, 2775, 2776 and 2777.

Bill, I was a fuel system mechanic and bucked many a rivet on C-124's from inside the fuel tanks for the "tin knockers" at McChord from 9/68 thru 5/69. You guys were installing new panels due to corrosion on the wing tanks. I'm sure we must have crossed paths. Mac

I was assigned to the 63rd Military Airlift Squadron at Norton AF Base from Nov. 1967 through Nov 1971. I was a crew chief on C-141's with aircraft #190 assigned to me and my crew. I was discharged as a SSgt on Nov 30, 1971. I really liked working on these aircraft.

I believe it was one of these C-141s that flew about 100 troops back to the good ol USA when I was getting released from active duty in Sept 1966. We flew from Clark Air Base in the Phillipines, flew north to take some parts up to Yakota Air Base in Japan, then we made the non stop flight to Travis. Thanks for the site...I can look back and see what brought me "home"!

Thanks for the site. I'm an old C-141 Flight Engineer so it is appreciated. I was in the 8th at McChord and the 41st and 17th at Charleston.

My Dad was a Retired Flight Engineer for Jack Catton, and flew on his crew on a C141 stationed out of Altus Air Force Base.

Cool Website!
