I've worked the F-16 from
86-90 (432nd AGS, 14thAMU, Misawa)
90-92 (308FS, Homestead AFB)
93-94 (39thFTS, Eglin AFB)
95 (36th FS, Osan)
96-05 (13FS, 35th FW, Misawa)
From 2005 -2007 I was assigned to the Predator.
Current or Favourite assignment
My favorite assignment was in the test squadron at Eglin AFB! I became engine run certified on 100's, 110's, 200's, and 220's! We had every block F-16 there and flew some off-the-wall configurations! The climatic lab was cool and taking a jet to the PRIMEs hangar was way cool! AGATS runs sucked though.
The best TDYs were the Cope Thunders to the Philippines! Cobra Gold in Thailand was another good one. PSAB got old fast but Incirlik Turkey was loads of fun!
This was an ACC unit the time I was there...not AETC. Great times, great fishin, awesome Crew Chief parties in the Keys! Forget the tail number I crewed. I was there for Hurricane Andrew and evacuated to Eglin AFB.
I was on the OT side of the house. More great fishin and Crew Chief parties down on Okaloosa Island! Forgot my tail number here; we pretty much worked all the jets. I became run certified on 4 different engines! We had the biggest T.O. library in the AF!
A 9 year tour! Lot's of memories as I spent more than half my career at Misawa.

Big change going from Fighters to UAVs. Great experience though!
