Most enjoyable. Thanks.
Was at TYNDALL for most of 1953, then sent to, K6 < P'yongtaek > Korea, as a, AACS Control-Tower and GCA Controller, assigned to that , Marine-Air-Base... However B4 Leaving Florida, we often had a Low-Level Flyby of a former, North-Korean MIG-15, out of nearby EGLIN..... Stayed 14 Month's at K-6 then took my discharge back here in Boston, and Never looked back.. Was glad to be a civvie again and no-Where near Air-Traffic-Control... Ended up w/ Ma-Bell for 47 years as a Central-Office-Equipment Installer & Toll-Testman... Still like spending time watching activities at nearby, Hanscom-AFB.... As a Child here in Bedford, watched the Gov't build that Air-Base out of Low-lying farm-land, all taken by eminent domain.. VTY Joe Damery
Hi Heinz, One day at Tyndall while on Tower-Duty w/ an Expected MIG-15 -Flyby, We 3 were joined by a, Captain Blanchard, who just wanted to observe the-event Close-Up, he being an Instructor-Pilot attached to Tyndall..... He had us Standing-Easy, and was just discussing what we 4 guy's were watching... Later learned that He was the, " Doc Blanchard ", of West-Point's, " Blanchard & Davis: Mr Inside and Mr Outside ", football fame.... Both of those 2 guy's were, Heismann-Trophy winners, separated by 2 years.. Ya just never Know... Joe D.
