This aircraft was great. Though overflown like all the block 30's in the 80th, this one flew great. I kept it really clean, and well serviced. Which wasn't as strict in Korea as it was like the big show we had to put on at Nellis. The pilots enjoyed riding in it, and the rapport between pilots and crew chiefs there was unlike any other assignment.
