I was active duty at dobbins durning the F105 days. Held a 431, 392, 423, and some other afsc deployed merged Turkey transitioned to F4 flew backseat 105 4 times and 3 times in F4 atended Air Force logistics courses in XRay Mag Rubber and other things at Lockheed across the runway. Things were very fast pace there and lack of back sweaters because most were Delta Pilots led to a lot of flights by crew chiefs. In 6 years lost one F4 after inflight refueling the F4 de ended to bomb drop and with aft tank full stalled crew tried to eject but were at to steep angle. And to low both died in crash all but one piece was recovered. Was there for deco missing most went to Aberdeen for weapon testing. Latterly threw away tons of parts.

I transfered to the 32 Air Division 908AC&W Sq. and was discharged at Dobbins on Nov. 26.1960. Would like to hear from anyone who was in 735th AC&W in Maroc.

Don My memory isnt what it use to be I believe the 4 F84s that you are refering to that crashed in Duluth were the 116th stunt team that replaced the T-Birds who transfered to the reserve from the 116th they were returning from a team contest. And recieved a wrong altemeter setting and flew into the ground in flight formation.

I oined the 116th air police on 4/19/52 after being in 116th 4yrs 7mo. and 8 days joined the Air Force. I eventually wound up in French Maroc at site 5 in 735th AC&W. I Later found out that it established by some of the men from the 116th,128 129 and units of the 116th F.W.. that were sent on active duty before. before I became a member of the 116th. If rember correctly we had F51, F84, & F86D. in that order.

I was with the 2589th support sqdn. from 1958 until a group of us went to Adana, Turkey about1960. Came back to the 32nd air div. and when they went to Oklahoma, transferred to the 908th AC&W Sqdn. I have many fond memories of Dobbins and wonder if anyone else remembers those years. There was a crash of a B-47 in a pond on Dobbins, and a crash of one of Lockheeds V-stol experimental planes I recall. Had many good friends and have lost contact.

Adam, I was at Dobbins from 1977 to 1985 F-100 F-105 Wild Weasle, last active duty mission was flown to Turkey Sept and October 1980 Coronet Power.(I was there that is how I know) F4 and then I believe we went to the F-15 after I left. Just a little background on the Unit I was in the 116th Weapons Systems Security Flight, Part of the 128th Tac Fighter Wing Thought this might help. Bob Mulligan

I am updating my email address. I am searching for anyone who served at Lackland Air Force Base April 1977 through May 1977. I want to see if anyone has saved their shot records that reflect the fact that we were given the Swine Flu Vaccine during that time period. The VA and USAF cannot seem to find any records indicating that the shots were given. Please contact me at 770-617-0333
