Errors and Omissions

I was assigned to Yokota AB Japan 1975 -1978 and I was the first Crew Chief assigned to aircraft 72-1299 when it first arrived for duty at Yokota AB, in 1976. I maintained the aircraft up until my reassignment to Davis Mothan AFB in 1978. The aircraft was practically brand new compared to the 62 year model C-130 that where assigned. Sad to see it got totaled by the Polish Air Force. We had some great missions together at Yokota AB.
