***** Seeking info regarding 480th TFS aircraft downed on 4/22/69
I am attempting to assist in contacting the lead or wingman aircrew of the F-4 that I understand was in formation with Vincent Scott’s and Walter S. Van Ckeave’s F-4 on 4/22/69 in Laos when they were presumably shot down. My friend, John DuBose, is interested in speaking with either of the accompanying F-4 aircrew, if feasible, to learn more about the circumstances of the crash. If you could provide any assistance, I would be most appreciative. H. G. “Don” Mercer Virginia Beach, VA

***** Seeking photo of Colonel Daniels' F-84F
Sir, I am an aviation artist, currently working on a series of F-84F profiles, and I am aware of the highly colored 366th Commander's machine, based at England AFB in the 1950s. Unfortunately, I only have one reference photograph from which to work so, for example, I can not confirm the serial/buzz number of the aircraft. Without details such as these, I am unable to complete the artwork. I wonder whether you are you able to point me to a contact or reference source that could help me? Warmest regards Andy Godfrey Artist, the Teasel Studio
This is a photo of the aircraft in question, Col. William A. Daniel’s F-84F. If you have a photo that includes, or information regarding, the tail number identifiers for this aircraft please click here to reply >>> WEB MASTER

Hello My name is Bill Sobeck, AL Post 109, in AZ. I am the Crew Chief on F-4E 66-0294. This a/c was at Da Nang in Aug of 1970 with the 366th TFW. Was later moved to the 432nd TRW at Udorn in 1972. I am looking for any pictures or info about a/c. Any info would be great. I live in the Tucson area and have taken lots of Boneyard. I post my pic at on Flickr. This link is for the album of just F-4s in the boneyard https://flic.kr/s/aHsjDRwpur . I do not make any money on pic and downloads are free, do not join Flickr to download. I was at Udorn in late Oct of 72 and didn’t take to many pictures. This link is pic of 66-0294 at Post 109 https://flic.kr/s/aHsjsDv1wX Aircraft came from the boneyard with Edwards white on it.
