I was stationed at Ramstein AFB from 2002-2005. I was the last FCC on 71-0881. I flew on her to Davis Monthan on her last flight. She was a great plane. Having my name on the side of this plane gave me great pride and I'm sad to learn she was put to sleep.

This is really funny seeing names from many of my old crew dogs from our flightline days in Yokota AB JPN and Ramstein GE...1992-2001! I was a ground pounder/Flt Mech in Japan and a Pro-Super in K'town Germany C9's. I remember the USS Cole incident because we had to devise a plan for maintenance crew support and flight mechanic availability to provide around the clock support to bring our Naval/Marines buddies back to Germany for care! I'm proud to say that I was part of that span of missions and believe it was one of the most fulfilling parts of my career because we were doing the AIR FORCE PROUD!

Stationed at Rhein-Main AB 1976-1979. Worked on all assigned C-9A out of the T39/C9 section as well. Never was there a nicer aircraft to maintain. 0876 (SPAR76) went to Belgium, 0879 the porpoise queen, 0880 had the dirtiest floors, 0881 was crew chief on this one, 0882 (The Other VIP aircraft).

I meant to say FMBBC, too many RON's have taken their toll.

I was a flight mechanic on every C-9A in the fleet. Spent time at Scott AFB,IL from 1987-1992. Then on to Rhein Main until the move to Ramstein in 93. Left for C-141's near the end of 96 for a tour on C-141's. I just wanted to say there was never a better aircraft to work on in the Air Force. It was so reliable that it was scary when it broke. Logged over 5000 hrs on these jets and traveled to some great locations. Hope all those that worked them have kept fond memories of the good times we had while TDY on the "Gale". Also a big HOWDY to Eric Troutt for blasting a hole in the forward lavatory door on #0881 with his supposedly holstered .38. Any former members of the BBFMC feel free to email me.
