Stuck on a work detail to scrub the guano off of that very EB-66 at Shaw in 1975. Huge mess. I was a sensor system tech working on the 100 or so RF-4C's stationed there at the time and watched the evacuation of the US embassy in Vietnam in the barracks day room as Hueys airlifted the final personnel from the roof of the building and deposited them aboard a waiting carrier offshore. The UH-1's were emptied and then shoved over the side to make room for more arriving evacuation flights. We were also training Iranian pilots at Shaw AFB until the Shaw of Iran was deposed.

I was in the Hydraulic shop at Spang from 69 to 73 and worked on the 66s. The first year was rough as we only had one guy that had worked on the 66s before.

Pete,

Prior to your association with RB-66C 54-0467, I knew her for a short while in 1963 at RAF Alconbury, 10th TRW, 1st TRS. I was assigned as assistant C/C for just a few weeks before working nights in support of an J-71 TCTO.

In Nov 1956, I was assigned to Shaw AFB, SC, home of Tactical Air Command's TB-25J and RB-66C, electronic reconnaissance/countermeasures (ECM) aircraft. Later designated the EB-66C. During my ten years at Shaw AFB, I had a number of jobs ranging from combat crew member, senior instructor in the 9th TRS, and Chief Stan/Eval EWO for the 363rd TRW. I'm also the webmaster of the B-66 Historical website... http://www.B66.info
