This book is about this young man who loved to fly and after several years was flying the F-105. There are two Parts to this story. The firstis a synopsis of my early years as a fighter pilot. I started off at Nellis AFB in Las Vegas and a year later found myself going to three places in a two year period. First was Yokota Japan to join the 35th Tactical Fighter Squadron, then I began sitting on nuclear alert in Korea. In between being “home” in Japan and sitting alert in Osan Korea I was flying combat missions out of Takhli Tailand. I touch but briefly on these because there are so many men who flew combat missions during Rolling Thunder that their stories are numerous and available elsewhere. Japan was exotic, Korea boring, and Thailand intense.
Part II of this vignette covers that period about seven years later when I am flying with the Air Force Reserve. It was wonderful to be back flying the F-105 and this part of the story reveals what our mission was and how we operated.
All in all it is a story about a man and his flying machine.
