Having been an Airman stationed at DMAFB during late 1971- 1974 working on A-7's (53450), I enjoyed the simplicity of its make up. A camloc here a camloc there until I went TDY twice then PCS to Korat, Thailand. The mess those aircraft became due to the flights of combat took a toll on them. They were awesome looking and in fine shape when there at DM, lol. If anyone out there was stationed at DM during the dates I mentioned, shoot me an email and would enjoy tossing it around. Been looking for a long time to chat with someone I might know, as cancer is working on me today.

Its the boneyard, what more can i say. if you get on post and search around you can find many many MANY static displays. My friend Tony who a few posts ago said there were not some aircraft there, They actulay are there but they are in various spots around the post. the main static displays out front are amazing but there are probobly 6 more static displays around the boneyard and the Airfeild, ya just got to put the time in driving around. but the boneyard is AMAZING to see. make a person think 2 things A) "wow were are an amazing fighting force" and B) "holy crap there are a lot of tax dollars sitting around" lol deffinetaly go see this, the Pima air museum and the Titan Missle museum if you are in the area.

I visited the base last month. There is no F-105G or F-86L and only the F-4C, no F-4N. I have pictures posted on Facebook, just copy this link: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2462698&id=17126934&l=fa6b189d7c

I had the honor of serving in the 100th Strat Recon Wing as an enlisted man. I was part of then Secretary of Defense early out program and was discharged from DMAFB in January of 1969. I am trying to trace the what happened to that great organization after I left! Apparently, the Wing was redeployed. I am trying to get my grandkids T-shirts with the 100th Strat Wing on them. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Chris Keena

I was with the 100th SRW at Davis Monthan in the early 70s. Anyone who has not witnessed a U-2 takeoff would be amazed at the climb rate of those aircraft! I also had occasion to go to the military museum in Ekaterinburg, Russia in 2004 and 2005, where approximately 1 sq ft of Gary Powers' U-2 is still on display. According to a map in the collection there, he was shot down while in the vicinity of an enrichment plant I worked at in the closed city of Novouralsk (formerly Sverdlovsk-44). The U.S. gets about 10 percent of its electricity from reactors fueled with ex-Soviet nuclear weapon material; the program I worked for monitors the blending down of this material for use in our nuclear fuel production system.

I just uploaded my two photos I have of the CH-3 12799. I was stationed at Albrook AFB Canal Zone '67-'69 and was lucky enough to be invited along for check ride on 12798. The entire time I was at Albrook I never saw 12799 fly. It was always redlined for parts missing. 12798 always had immediate spares. Now that 12799 is Davis-Monthan I plan on taking up fond memories of the one ride on I had on an Air Force aircraft. In February 1969 I was given orders to my next assignment to be Davis-Monthan. President Nixon decided differently and sent me home in his first troop reductions after being elected. Spring 2009 will be forty years later to visit Davis-Monthan.
