USAF Aircraft That My Friend Don Esler and I Have Worked On

Our basic training was at Lackland AFB.

Our military aircraft maintenance school was at Amarillo Air Force Base Texas on this airplane in 1958.

We got to Hamilton Air Force Base in California in 1959. This was the first aircraft we worked on . Later it was replaced by the F-101A and B.

The F-104 aircraft was also stationed at Hamilton Field but in a different Squadron.

In 1960 Don got sent to Holland and I got sent to Misawa AB in Japan.
