Hello all, Jack Fries is Jacquard Fries living in Fla.
Guess who threw the bottle at me but Jack was driving and almost hit him. He got pissed and wrote you up. Hope you enjoyed having your airman of the month parking for your Restrictions muster.. They almost had to change a eng because you left fod in a eng fitting after you left..
Christi was driving your VW bug.. Hows them apples

The best part about the T-29 was cabin pressurization. It made extended flights and RON's a little more comfortable.
I was there from March 1963 to June 1966, thanks to Robert S. McNamara and LBJ. The only officers I remember are Cdr. Elliott and Lt. Baumgartner. The best times were before Elliott became CO.

Weekend trips to Mexico were a real hoot.
