I was the crew chief for a/c 338 from 8/71 to 5/72. The aircraft was called \\\\\\\"da Hawaiian\\\\\\\". 338 was sent to Clark AFB for a overhaul because it suffered extensive damage while evading a SAM. The g meter was pegged out at 10 when it landed. It had numerous rivets popped and cracked panels. When 338 came back to DaNang the \\\\\\\"da Hawaiian\\\\\\\" logo in the nose gear was painted over but you could still see the outline of the name. While I was the c/c 338 shot down 1 MIG on one of her last mission while I was still her c/c Aloha Morris

Joe Steimann did a fantastic job on 68-465 that is located next to the installation entrance at Jefferson Barracks Air National Guard Station, St. Louis, MO 63125.

I have repainted all of the 131st Fighter wing's static display air craft in the past two years including the F-4e at Jefferson Barracks, F-15 at Jefferson City and F-4c at St. Louis Regional in East Alton. I repainted them to look as original as possible and they all look very nice now. If you want any pictures of them plese e-mail me and I would be happy to send you some. Thanks Joe steimann

Aircraft 68-0468 is sitting at an obscure area of Jefferson Barracks ANG Base and is in poor condition. Aircraft 68-0338 (mig killer) is mounted on a concrete block (that is visible from Highway 70) at Lambert Field ANG Base.

I`m a Florissant native, grew up watching 131st FW fly at Lambert. One of the first planes as a child was the F-100`s base at Lambert. Each Saturday morning, I would bug my father to take me to the airport to watch the F-100`s. That was the biggest thrill, I really enjoyed watching them run up their engines, 3 a breast on runway, then bang! Fire belched out the back of the plane, and your whole body shook, what a rush! I dreamed about being a F-100 pilot as a child almost every night. If possible, could you send any literature about the 131st opeational use of the F-100`s and of couse, any photos would be a pleasant extra! Thanks for your help! Keep up and safe always!!!
