P.S. the straight-winged F-84 and the T-33, formerly on display at heritage Park near the front gate, appear to be completely MISSING.

27AGS Training Monitor on the commander's staff. Retired 1984. Office in hanger 184. Cannon AFB New Mexico home of all the F-111 swept wing aircraft. The F-111 was a very complex one of a kind flying machine and spare parts were almost non-existence. The Chief of Maintenance Col Roose was determined to each aircraft be flyable. There were to be on hanger queens on his watch. The flying schedule was made by tail number. If there was a part on back order its was cannibalized from another F-111. If the aircraft did not make the scheduled flight due to maintenance the commander of that maintenance unit was ordered to be physically at that aircraft until it did.

I was stationed at Cannon from 1979-1983 as a Pneudraulics mechanic with the 522nd. I had some good times and some bad times. I always thought if I had not been station at Cannon I might have stayed in for 20 years.The only thing bad was that it was a promotion base and everyone out to screw you, so they could get promotions. I still miss Smitty, Chief, Homza, McDowell, Darcy and the Clancy's. I learned a lot about life, people, and shooting. I still have some original 522 patches.
