I agree with Raymond Grass about that aircraft being haunted. I was stationed at Travis AFB from 91-06. I was expediting one day when I came upon this aircraft. When I climbed onboard to check on things at 0300 in the morning. I was greeted with a "GET OUT" statement from the back. I turned around and never went on that plane again...

I worked this acft as an ART with the 349th at Travis Ca. then more when it moved to the 445th at Wright-Patterso n AFB, Oh. This aircraft was rumored to be haunted. It was one of the aircraft that hauled the remains of the people who took their lives at Jonetown in South Americain the late 80's. I never had a problem on the aircraft but I know a couple of crew chiefs that wouldn't work the aircraft at night by themselves.

U.S. Marine Corps. 1982-86. I remember leaving Korea from Bear Hunt 84' in one of these. Hell, they issued ear plugs before take off so I knew a quiet conversation with my buds was out the window on this haul. Sitting in the grass on our packs in a dense fog on the edge of a runway in South Korea. You could not see 30 feet in any direction. We heard this thing for what seemed like 10 minutes and it just got louder, and louder and louder !! Then this thing that looked like a black building laying on its side appeared RIGHT in front of us and taxied out of sight. Almost soiled the ole shorts on that one. I mean, we were expecting a helo evac. Oh, and lots of leg room in the passenger area. Great ride.

I was crew chief of aircraft 258 around 1983-1987, at McChord AFB 62nd MAW. She was the finest aircraft I ever worked on. Carried 100% reliablity two months straight. In rodeo 1983 she air droped a pallet and smashed a truck and became the "Mac Bomber". Never any cmplaints from aircrew. She was one of the original Hanoi Taxi's that brought POW's home. She should be saved.Thank you for allowing me to share my time with her.
