My dad, Jim Hurley, was the crew chief for a U10, tail number 62-5907A, circa 1965. Based on the photos I have, he was probably based at Bien Hoa, and flew in and out of Can Tho, Bong Son and Quin Hon.

My father flew the U-10 out of NKP from Mar 67 - Mar 68. He recently past away and I'm looking for any information on his unit (606th ACS) and the U-10 during his tour of duty.

Hey anyone! My dad flew the u10 out of Bien Thuy 1967-1968. Before that he flew a KC135 out of Thailand. I have heard a lot of the stories and wondered if any of you may know him. Maj. Stu Olson. Thank you
