Just started searching info about my time spent in Yokota Japan.(67 to 68).Worked on the flightline with the B57F aircraft, tail number 301 abd 302. Saw the note from Vince Platt from Chicago. I'm trying to get his email address so I can contact him. Also Bob Kyes from Peria Illinois.

I worked on the same series WC-135 aircraft that Jeff McMaster worked on (Tail #: 667,670,665,666,671,672,673 and 674) while stationed at Eielson AFB, Fairbanks, Alaska as part of the Det 5, 9th Weather detachment from 1969 to 1971. My AFSC was 32550, Automatic Flight Control System Specl and Electronic Compass systems. I also worked on the WB-57F, 58th WRS, that worked along side the WC-135 sampling the air at higher Altitudes. I enjoyed working on the above aircraft and being associated with the missions they performed.
