I was stationed at Nellis from 1974-1979. Working on the flight line as a crew chief. I was the 1st woman assigned to the F105. It was hard work, but I enjoyed it. I later became a crew chief on the F-5 Aggressor . Met some great people while on the flight line .

I was stationed at Nellis from early 1960 to mid 1963. I was assigned to Maintenance Control, Aircraft Records Section and in charge of all Time Change items for all aircraft on the base. Remember our first F105 arrived early 1961 and the F100 escorting it in crashed at the end of the runway by the ammo dump.

We just brought home a 1972 Chrysler Imperial that was once owned by a Lt. Col. R. S. Vayda. The receipts in the glove box trace him purchasing tires for it at Eglin AFB, Wright Patterson AFB 1973, Nellis AFB 1974. the car still has flight line stickers on the bumpers. We drove it home...and just thoguht we'd try to find it's original owner! Any info you could give us would add to the memories alive in this car! Thanks!

I was a flight line maintenance officer with 57th FWW from 1974 until 1977. Col Robert Vayda was the DCM at that time. Loved working with the crews on the flight line. Also enjoyed the weekend fly-ins
to Nellis AFB. There was always something going on.
Duty hours extended when assigned to both transient maintenance and OMS at the same time. It was an exciting responsibility for a 22 year old.

I remember the first successful U.S. antigravity flight took place July 18, 1971 at S-4 (on Nellis Air Force base in Nevada), wherein light bending capabilities were also demonstrated to obtain total invisibilities. Present at this flight were notables such as Admiral (Bobbie Ray) Inman (former National Security Agency director), who is now head of SAIC (Science Applications International, Incorporated) in San Diego, CA, which makes the antigravity drives.Some of you guys do too.
