I started my Crew Chief career in SAC on the last FB-111 made stationed at Plattsburg AFB NY. My second duty station took me to the 57th FIS in Keflavik Iceland on the F4-E which was a great 2 years. I had longed to work on the new F-16 and loved to ski so Hill AFB UT was my next location where I started with the F-16 and from there I went to Hahn AB GE to the 10th FS. I deployed to the Gulf with the 10th where my F-16 was shot down the last day of the Gulf war. I returned and moved to Spangalhem when Hahn was drawn down and from there to my last duty assignment with the 310th FS at Luke AFB AZ.
Current or Favourite assignmentI loved being assigned in germany and traveled all over Europe with my family. Both Hahn and spanghalem porduced great memories. I workked hard and played hard by downihill ski racing for USAFE and dove a race car at Spang Speedway.
DeploymentsI was deployed from Hill to Turkey where we were doing a diplomatic role where I first had a mishap with the F-16. We had just installed an engine on a Phase inspection and were doing our test run when the 7th stage blade exited through the skin destroying the aircraft. I was deployed to Turkey and Spain from Hahn as well. I was deployed with Hahn during the first Gulf war, desert storm and it was there my F-16 84-1390 was shot down over Iraq
