Takhli RTAFB - Land of the King Cobra
Posted by Bill Hicks on 10/24/2009, 12:20:32
In September of 1968 I left the resort and beach town of Minot North Dakota(Minot AFB)for the luxuries of Takhli Thailand. I was a security Policeman with the 355th SPS Squadron 1968-1969. Our Wing Commander at the time was Col. Horgan and Vice Wing Commander was Col. Drew. I think our Squadron Co. was a Cpt. Snyder. I pulled alot of duty at Wing Headquarters(Command Post) entry control point. Most of the guys I served with I don't remember. I'm terrible with names.
While I was there I remember an EB-66 crashing off the end of the runway. I pulled security on the wreckage, and an F-105 crashing at the end of the runway. No one survived either crash. I don't remember who the crew members were. I also don't remember the name of the Thud pilot. A mind is a terrible thing to lose! Anyway I would really like to hear from any one who might remember me, or was at Takhli the same time I was there.
