Awesome. I was stationed at Seymour from 1992-94. I liked it so much that when I got out of the Air Force, I moved to North Carolina permanently. I loved doing the shows, although I was always working on KC-10's in those days. Glad you had this experience.

Default AIR FORCE....B52 bombers

Hi Ron

Thanx for the memories. I was a Radar Specialist in the Air Force in the 1960's. Stationed at a Strategic Air Command (SAC) base in Maine.
We had a squadron of B52 bombers.

I will never forget the excitement of being in the cockpit of one of these "big birds". I felt like Slim Pickens in the movie "Dr. Strangelove"

They are an amazing piece of machinery .the first group of B52 bombers were built in 1952....and, I think some of them may still be flying.


Here's me when I was Radar school in Illinois. Incidentally, I'm a "Jersey guy", too.


.


Take care,

I grew up in Hillside, NJ. My nearby neighbor (only 2 blocks away) was "The Scooter" Phil Rizzuto. A wonderful guy to us kids in our neighborhood back in the 1950's.

He would drive down our street on his way to Yankee Stadium. And, we always knew when he was approaching because he drove a 2-seater 1953 Nash Metropolitan.
He would stop and talk with us. In 1950, when he was awarded AL MVP, we gave him a box of homemade cannolis (his favorite dessert).


Take care,

As you well know, Drew Pearson was an amazing wide receiver.

I was an avid Redskins fan (John Riggins was my guy) during the time when Joe Theismann was their quarterback (1974-1985).

Fond memories of those years.
