I too enjoyed the bubble checks, especially on Guam at the 852nd ACWRON when the 86 D models would come cookin` across the flat and climb up toward and barely over us at about 50 feet. The 41st FIS was wild and Colonel Jack Mann was the best. Would like to hear from any of the old gang from around the world. And now you can sing me a hymn... Him, him, ---- him!!

Wishing all a wonderful Memorial Day. I will spend some time reflecting on the monumental sacrifices made by others so that we may enjoy our freedoms of today, Always watch the PBS special from D.C., the music is great but the letters that are read, and the personal anecdotes are very meaningful, and give one pause. Dick Murphy, 645th Radar SQ. 1962-65. Would like to hear from any of my contemporaries from there.

Greatest bubble check we ever had was at Boron Ca, 750th AC&W. We were only a few miles from Edwards AFB and it was 1955. They were testing the F-100s and the B-52s. They only had 3 B-52s then and they were top secret. The call signs were simular and when we asked for the check,we thaught it was a flight of F-100s. It turned out to be a B-52 and he almost blew our bubble away. It scared our commander and controllers out the next 10 years of promotions. He made 2 passes and was as low as our F-86s and F-94s that were our fighters then. Its been a long time but its something I will never forget.

Dome checks at Mt Tam. 1955-56. F-86,s and F-89,s from Hamilton. But the best were the NG p-51,s. The sound of those big recep,s climbing one side of the mountain and then diving down the other side is unforgettable.
