I'll do most of the prep for you... just need someone else to take the lead this time.

Let's do this !

Any F-111? I was an avionics tech on the EF's and the A's. We fixed the black boxes the flight line crews took out for repairs. Radio and nav stuff mostly. Some Electronic Countermeasures too.

I got to meet the Belle's pilot a couple of times in the 90s. He used to come out to the WWII show in Reading PA every June. As I learned about the plane, I found out that I lived right across town from the ball turret gunner all those years growing up. By the time I found out, he was gone. Would have been cool to get to know him.
