This series of images was sent in to C141Heaven by Al Goodwin. He was one of the crew chiefs assigned to 163 while based at McChord AFB in Tacoma Washington back in the late 1960's. The images are copies of old slides he had taken, often with horrible lighting conditions, and stored for years. Dates and locations are included where known.

Al snapped these shots in the Tacoma area around McChord.

This next set of images was taken on the 5/5/2000, the day that 163 was flown from Charleston to the Boneyard. I am sorry to say I don't have a record of who submitted these photos to me, but as soon as I figure it out I will provide credit to the photographer. As shown below these may not be in the order taken.
