    Nice pic. I take it she went of the runway. I saw a C-130 go off the runway (well I saw the aftermath that is) in Iraq. She ended up burning out though. I have a pic of it somewhere.

    The way I understand the story is this: they were flying the USO tour into that AF base in Thailand. There was an IP and a CW1....my dad says it was unusual to have a CW1 . After they unloaded the tour folks they started doing STOL approaches so the CW1 could learn. You can see in the picture that they are using a road for a runway with the large ditches on the sides. Anyways, a gust of wind blew them off the road just a little, and thats what you see. He stated that A/C never few again...they cut it up during clean-up.
    This was in November '63.

    Sweet pics!

    The side-on shots remind me of a cat hunkered down, wiggling its butt ready to pounce on a bird or roach or something! Guess I'm just used to seeing the straighter lines like the C130 or C17 cargo planes.

    Second pic with the feathered prop is a little disconcerting, isn't it.
