At Nellis, worked with Fred Schwab, Waymand Nutt, and Hoot Gibson. At Luke worked with Bob Messerli, Mike Filliman, John Back, Gus Hendry. Gene Butler, Carl Schneider, and others I cannot recall. Proud Associate member of the Super Sabre Society. Flew in the F-105 at Mt. Home AFB, and one night bombing mission at Mac Dill AFB in the F-4. Loved flying and working with guys who are now my heroes.
I have flown all missions ( in training, and in the back seat) of the F-100. Civilians I know are envious of the career I had. And what a career!
