I was working at HQ USAFSS when the PA project was announced and managed to wrangle an assignment as a 292 on flight status. After Basic Aircrew Training I arrived in RVN at 6994th, TSN in September 1966, ultimately flew over a hundred missions. Have a black out for the names of the crew lost in early 1967, memory says I traded with one of the ops killed in that crash but cannot recall anything substantial. Was a ham operator so some of you guys may recall "bootlegging" my amateur call K0MZV "aeronautical mobile over the South China Sea" -- I actually got a QSL card. Jeeze this brings back memories of things I had forgotten....
