GFAFB T&A 321st 1965 to 1968

Postby ljogwin on Sun Oct 25, 2009 10:34 am

I spent 1 year at Chanute AFB, then Grand Forks... Targeting and Alignment team 1965 to 1968. Be nice to hear from some
of the gang at GFAFB.

I went to sleep driving 5 ton IH and ended up in muddy plowed field. They had to send 2 large units from B52 wing to get it
out. The mud was level with the steps! Base Co. came out and looked it over. Pretty embarassing..

We did the T&A on the 2 in silo launches (?) at GFAFB. Lotsa media and congressmen there. I stayed home and watched
the fiasco on Tv. Door didnt even blow off, much less missle. Modified 1st stage, dummy 2nd and 3rd stage and warhead.
G&C same. Too many safety devices. Got off good shots at Vandenberg, one come up side of mt. and set 2 counties on fire.
