Crewed this jet at Osan with the 36FS on Delta Diamond B Flt. I had the HAS closest to Phase/Flightline kitchen so it was a short bike ride for lunch. I went to Moody on the Acceptance team from Osan to Des Moines 132nd FW, Moody AFB GA due to we were converting from block 42's to block 40's while I was there. I gained her from Moody in July 1993. I remember this trip very well while we were in Des Moines IA when they had that bad flood in 93. So weeks without power, help sandbagging the broken levies etc on our off time and still accepted jets at the ANG Base. Didn't get much help from the 132nd due to they were activated and very busy sandbagging, cleanup etc for the flood emergency. Felt bad taking the jets they just accepted them after they converted from A-7's and they were great hosts and a top notch unit.
