I was in the 17thDSES from 1976 to 1979 when it closed. Was one of my best assignments and some of the best personnel I worked with I really enjoyed my 4 years there.

I was an aircraft electrican on the B-57 in the 4677 DSES at Hill AFB and was one of the first people that move to Malstrom AFB. I had just got to Hill when one crashed tin Salt Lake. Another one crashed somewhere in Alaska and then one more later but it was not our pilots. We also had one landed a Malstrom that forgot to reset his landing gear cut out horn and bounce it off the runway before getting his gear down.

I was assigned to the 29th FIS from April 1957 to July 9,1960 when I was released from active duty. I was a crew chief with the F-89H, F-89J and the F-101B. TDY's to Vincent AFB in Yuma, AZ, Glasgow, Grand Forks, Minot and Ellsworth AFB. Vincent AFB was the weapons meet with the F-89H and on ready alert with the -89J at the other bases. Lots of stories to tell if anyone interested.

HAVE NOT BEEN THERE YET. SAD THEY DO NOT HAVE AN F-89 OR A MEMORIAL TO THE PILOTS AND BACK SEATERS WHO LOST THEIR LIVES WHILE FLYING THE F-89'S AND THE 101'S.
WE LOST A LOT OF GOOD MEN.

I was in the Sgt. Major's Office at the base hospital with the 854th Medical Group in 1967. I enjoyed Montana and remember the great weekend when Sgt. Phillips and Tom Cook went fishing and camping off base in 1967. I'd like to visit the base again. In '67, the base had the 29th FIS with F-101B Voodoos and the 341st Strategic Missile Wing with the Minuteman.

Manchester, Great Britain,
Visited here a few years ago, a real gem of a museum, good outdoor exhibits, plenty of exhibits indoors as well, not a bit museum, but very well put together, and the people who man this museum are just great, very helpful to visitors. WORTH A VISIT
