Takhli RTAFB - Land of the King Cobra
Re: Takhli Thailand case Awarded
I was at Takhli from Mar 1968 until March of 1969. I was in the 41st TEWS working in the B-66 Phaxe inspection on the 41st and 42nd TEWS aircraft. every major phase required a high power engine run. At first we pulled the acft away from the clam shell blast fence on the B66 parking ramp. We did that until we managed to roll the blast fence over which in turn blew a Thai guard shack over with the guard inside.
After that we took our aircraft to the engine High power area next to the perimeter of the base.
I would love to get my hands on any maps you have of the runway and engine run up pads. I am diabetic and have has a triple heart bypass plus they had had to place 5 stents in my arteries 5 months after my bypasss .
