Howdy Morgan12. I did my Crew Chiefing at Beale AFB in California and Kadena AB in Okinawa, 1968-74. We kept the trusty KC-135Q's in the Air (most of the time) for the SR71 Black birds. Also did several typhoon evac's in CCK and Angeles City with a few stop overs in Thailand, Spain, and of course faced the dreaded cold of Alaska in dead winter at 60 below. Certainly the best days of my life.

I was a CC on Cessna O-1 Birddogs while in Vietnam. Had three of them at Lai Khe. Pic of me working (LOL) on one of them - c. June 1967.

Aircraft maintenance officer as a LT. Worked with extremely fine crew chiefs on BUFFs and tanks. And then flew BUFFs crewed by professionals!

I'm not a Crew Chief, but a AO/G (Aerial Observer/Gunner) on CH-46E's. Basically a Crew Chief without the formal school and title. We get all the same codes and training of a Crew Chief just home grown from your individual squadron. **EDIT** Sorry didnt see this was in the Air Force Forum. My Bad!! **EDIT**

My Dad was a crew chief in Air Rescue flying C130's. He refueled helicopters in VietNam and searched for downed planes in Alaska. He did 30 years and I did 4 years working in a comfortable PMEL lab.
