I was a crew chief on 60-0374 when I was stationed at Patrick 69-70. Back in 75 the Aria fleet transferred to WPAFB and I became the first Aria maintenance superintendent chief. Our first mission was to South Africa to cover a space launch. In 1976 as Maint. Team Chief with an outstanding Team of specialists on board from WPAFB. We flew on a McCord AFB C-141 to Darwin @ Perth Australia.
In support of Aria aircraft 374, 329, 326, 375, and 330. To cover the "Voyager I & II" mission space probes. Which just yesterday 9/12/13 Voyager I left this solar system, the deepest space probe ever and will discover even more. I had some outstanding Aria Crew Chiefs and assistance Crew Chiefs in my flight. They worked long hard hours day and night.
To keep their aircraft airworthy & safe. They truly earned my respect and the 4950 Test Wing owes them so much and their families too.
A few years after I left, I was informed about the tragic death.

Man I got a few hours on this jet! A/C 326 was the jet that picked up the voice communication from Apollo 13 when it came around from the dark side of the moon. Back in the Apollo days, these aircraft were the voice relay for the space vehicles back to Houston Control.

I believe Mr. Glenn Tucker has confused aircraft 326 with 375. Aircraft 60-0375 did have its entire Aria equipment removed and for a period did have just passenger seats installed. Aircraft 60-0326 was never removed from being an Aria aircraft. On a TDY to AMARC in April 2005 I located both 60-0375 and 60-0326 along with several other Test Wing Aircraft at AMARC. 60-0375 has the entire cockpit cut off. I worked as a Crew Chief on 60-0329 and 60-0375 at the 4950th TW WPAFB from 1988 until it moved to Edwards AFB.

I was a Flight Engineer at Wright-Patterso n in the 4952nd Test Squadron. This airplane was stripped on the inside and configured with airline seats. Very good flying aircraft. One of my favorite. I have a very good picture of it on final approach into WPAFB.

Another original ARIA aircraft from Patrick AFB in 1967-1970. It had the huge nose on the front.
