I was there with you precisely those same Months, as A/Craft Elect. Spec. '67-'68. As you traveled from Main Base to Bomb-Dump, do you recall at the NW end of Runway / Taxiway the 'TRIM PADSs' where we Ran-Up our "Birds" (F-105 & F-111, EB-66), doing Elect. Tests at 100%+ After-burner. Also can you describe the Tanker Trucks that were allegedly Spraying "Mosquito Repellant", where they Filled these Tankers, and where the Barrel's of "Repellant" were Stored ? They only Sprayed once the Sun Set, to Minimize Evaporation and Maximize Saturation onto fast-growing Jungle Foliage, lessoning Chances of SAPPER attack and Infiltration. We did In-fact have a "Infiltrator" cut his way into our "LOX-Plant" (LIQ O2) - Required for Hi-Altitude Flights. The young E-3 manning Dispatch office (AP Hqtrs) simply stated >
