I arrived at Norton AFB CA in May of 1968 and the first flyable USAF aircraft I had a chance to work on was C141 66-181. I really got attached to that aircraft and eventually had the opportunity to become her Crew Chief in 1970 with my name on her side. Probably doesn�t mean much to most people but to a Crew Chief it means the world and that aircraft is in your heart the rest of your life. When I left Norton AFB in 1971 she was scheduled to get the new white and gray paint. She had one engine that was changed with the painted cowling and it really took away her silver shine.

Affectionatly known as PATCHES during 1978 - 1982 for it's patch work paint job. She was at Norton AFB California and I was the Dedicated Crew Chief during this time frame. The only bright spots on her were the plugs from the stretch mod. In 1981 she received a face lift for Rodeo Compatition. That was the best she looked in years. I flew many hours on this one before the dedicated Flying crew chief was abandond.
