| Fixed Navigation equipment Nov '66 - Nov '67 Tan Son Nhut. Had 2 or 3 EB 57's Some sort of semi special birds. Went to Stewart & had TDY with 3 '57's at Rein Mein Germany. On the way to Rein Mein, our C118 sprung major hydraulic leak and we landed in Greenland with landing gear sagging. Our commander in Germany was upset because he couldn't see 57's controls @ night. Checked everything..then Replaced everything. Finally removed each face plate and washed them with soap and water in the bathroom. The Commander was happy. Loved 57's and all the other planes I worked on. |

| Stationed at Stewart AFB 1963-1953 then shipped out to Air Sea rescue in the Azores.
George Leifert and I were in the same Electric Shop.
Ken Loomis and Roger roomed across the hall from me.
Don't remeber Thomas Piston...
Left Air Force after 4 years.
Loved parallelling generators while standing outside the cockpit on ground while the engines were near full power.
Also remember Jim Abel; he took me for a ride in the back seat once to the run-up pad.

| I was a crew chief on the B57 52-1516 at Stewart AFB from 1963 to 1966. Would really enjoy hearing from anybody that remembers me. In particular Roger First, Kent Loomis and Gene Cevasco. Gene and his wife Janet were at my discharge party in our home in Rock Tavern and got really smashed. Sam Houston spent a night on my sons bed because he was in no shape to go home.

| Dear all,
I am writing a book about the Canberra aircraft in worldwide service, and am looking for people that either flew or serviced, or even just remember the aircraft to contribute to the book.
If you would like more details, please email me or contact me via my Facebook page.

| My father worked ejection seats on the EB-57's as part of the 17th at Malmstrom AFB MT in the mid to late 70's. I remember and loved the spectacle of the cartridge starts. The bang, cloud of smoke and low growl of the engines coming to life was very cool! Very beautiful planes as well! All of Malmstroms 57's were retired to the desert in AZ about 1979 and they can be seen sitting together on Google Earth.

| Great times in the 4603rd. I was the crew chief on B-57B 52-1500 at Stewart AFB. NY. In 65 & 66. I have names of other crew chiefs I would like to hear from. Hank Kuzawa, Larry Warren, Steve Brown, Chick Thompson, Kent Loomis, Rodger First, Paul Pitts, Charlie Bowler, Gene Cavasco. We went on a lot of TDY's together flying frendly enemy penatration missions waking up those Air Defence fighter squadrons.The 57 was a great plane and the years in the U.S. Air Force are a treasured memory. |
