Record 1708 Became the plane captain for the station Skytrain, a C-117d, one of the finest R4D's ever built. Call Sign: Navy-124. We hauled the mail and extra parts and personnel in Support of Operation Market Time and Game Warden, throughout Vietnam and beyond. We supported Det TSN, aka Aircofat, and re-fueled there often, hoping to get a ham sammitch before Mammasan sold out, or that thievin' monkey, Sam got to it! We flew along with three other 117's, #'s 17270, 50780, 50801, and ours, 17124, built in 1938. The Danang Detachment had one also but I cannot remember the number, having never crewed on that one. That bunch kept to themselves, but we joined up one night in Cavite City, RP and partied like there was no tomorrow at Mammas Place. It's sad that the Navy pulled out of there in 1972. The Aircofat Legend was true, We got done what needed doing through determination, skill, guts, and individual commitment to the group effort. We kept those old planes and H-34's flying no matter what. Have a warm PBR, or a Carling's Black Label at 86 degrees, sometime and just reflect on what we accomplished. Nice Site!
