Crew Chief Profile
61st Fighter Squadron "Top Dogs" , 1978 - 1981
I started my tour crewing F-4D's 66-0244 and 65-0626 (1978-1979). This was the first brand new aircraft I was crew chief on, I got her from the factory with 5.4 hours. Capt Randy Holdman was my pilot and SrA Joe Gates was my assistant crew chief. Found out that she's been scraped in 2014...Good Bye old friend
