I had the pleasure of nearly 10 years of flying T-29's. Two tours at James Commally AFB, and the Air Force Academy. I have probably flown most of the T-29C's, some B's and a couple of D's, but mostly the T-29C. A really great plane.

I was station at Mather AFB from 1953-1957. I did every thing from working on T-29 include refuel the airplanes. Later my job was refuel the power units that was used by maint. mechanics. So if any one serve with the 3535 flight line maint. sq from 1954 to feb. 1957 contact me at my E-Mail. Do anyone know Airman Dale Peterson. Later he took care of the coffee pot for the 1ST SGT.

I was there from Jan 1953 to Sept 1956, got out early to go to college. The T29, I work on was the A,B,C, and D models. Came out as an A/1C, worked nights and went to school at Sacramento JR College and graduated with a AA degree in Aeronautics, worked for Lockheed Missile Space Company for thirty eight years, was with the 3535 flight Sqd, was there when we had the floods in Marysville in
1955. Had gone to Sheppard AFB for A/C mechanic school. Anyway
great time at Mather. Always want to be a P51 fighter pilot, doesn't everyone.
Later, every time you see an airplane thing of me.
