Takhli RTAFB - Land of the King Cobra
Re: Attention all flightline workers 1972 -1973 474th TFW
I was a crew chief also at Takhli. I crewed Red Tail 67-101. 474OMS. Early Agent Orange flights for "Operation Ranch Hand" originated out of Takhli. If you remember, the entire perimeter was a "Dead Zone" especially the area near the trim pad. Also, in addition to the nightly "fogging" for insects (what the hell was that stuff) the came around regularly and sprayed the tops of the revetments (dirt filled) to kill the weeds. What was that that they used then??? There are lots of unanswered questions. I personally have THYROID ISSUES. I wish you the best. Keep us advised of your battle.
