    It's been a long time for me, but when I went it was on the Mineral Wells airport.

    Ah-so, copy-copy!!!!!!!! Yup, that was it, took Roy Neal's (Wes-Tex Aircraft) 190 down there from LBB once for some work on it, just couldn't think of who was there. Just west of Ft. Worth or Mineral Wells, right?

    best, randy

    For the life of me I can't recall the name of that radio co. at Mineral Wells airport or the name of that Army ? Camp either. Took a Cessa 195 or 190 down there for some electronics work from Lubbock, was some avionics radio company on that airport.

    I don't know about the young ladies in Dothan, but I got lots of stories about "them" tires. ROFL

    started a topic Chopper Pilot

    Chopper Pilot

    A bit dramatic, but this describes the helo training program Army folks like Bill and I attended. Brings back some memories.
