I crewed this plane at Ellsworth with John Gerrits (Genrull). I was at Ellsworth 1980-1984. My memories of this plane were it was a great plane. Ellsworh sure looks different today than it did back then.

I remember working on this aircraft when it was stationed at Grissom. I was there from '86-'93. She was the biggest pig on the ramp!! Always broken!

I worked in the Wheel and Tire Shop at Ellsworth from 1974-1976. Balls 1 was one of my babies I had to put new "shoes" on. It was sure a sharp-looking "purty-bird" sitting on the alert pad. But it could get up and go when the klaxon sounded.

I was an RM onboard this aircraft from 1987 - 1990. We picked up "balls one" at Ellsworth in 1987. She was a G model aircraft used in the radio relay mission at Grissom. Larry Forma, Paul Macalmont, Bob Burrough, Bob Peasley, Mark Seltzer and Carl were some our senior Radio Maintanence technicians of the time. I sat many days on alert at both Grissom and Rickenbaker on 8001. Great plane!

I crewed this aircraft at Ellsworth, this jet was known as Balls one, it spent a lot of time sitting on the alert pad, it was a good jet to crew. I spent a lot of time heating water and cleaning starters after the Klaxon sounded. John Gerrits aka "Genrull" crewed this jet for a long time.
