    0344's first assignment - MacDill AFB

    Just wanted to note that this a/c, 0344, is shown here in its first assignment around 1980 to the 56th TTW at MacDill AFB in Florida, which was closed during the "base closure" period in the early 90's. I had been documenting this plane as it was my uncle Bob Lake's "ride" after it was transferred to the 121st TFS DCANG. Bob later flew this plane to Sheppard AFB when it was retired to instructional a/c status for training aircrews. If any crewchief, ground crew tech, or fellow pilot can add some more detail on this a/c or worked with Bob I'd like to hear from you!
    Thanks - Adam
