I was stationed with the 616th AC&W on the Wasserkuppe, Germany from 1968 to 1971. I was just a kid and I have many fond memories of work and play at the "Kuppe". The most memorable is the Gross Flugtag in 1970. Niel Armstrong was there as guest for opening of the Segelflugmuseum. As Armstrong was driven off in a jeep, I was in the road and it stopped and I was able to shake hands with the first man on the moon. However, none of my photos tuned out well.
I was a Radar Maintenance Tecnician and enjoyed troubleshooting the numerous problems and cleaning hydraulic fluid off the Heigh Finder pedestal.
Prosit to your web site and to all that served on the Wasserkuppe.

My father, Bill Bailey, was an Air Force radar operator from 1959 to 1963. His assignments were Lake City TN, somewhere in New Jersey, Savannah GA, and Gunter AFS. I would like to talk with anyone who knew him.

Just found this great site. As a young E-2 radio operator (29350)I was stationed in Tripoli and Benghazi Libya from 1959-61 (633rd ACW Sq and Det 3 633rd Benghazi). I was also a DJ/radio announcer on Wheelus Armed Forces radio (weekends).

I was one of the troops sent to the 604th Comm Sq at Ramstein when the 633rd shut down, along with A/2C Ken Horn and SSgt Ron Hoffman.

In a later life I was the 552nd AACW executive officer at Tinker from Jan 80 to Dec 83 when I retired.

I remember Benghazi well. There are a million stories rivaling many MASH episodes, almost all involving drinking. I also remember an Ed Sullivan TV show (Toast of the Town) we aired on the Wheelus AFRTV station broadcast from Israel during one of Sullivan's trips there. The Libyans monitored our broadcasts (looking for references to Israel or the Jewish state)and shut us down as soon as it dawned on them (and us) where the show was coming from.

Great site, keep up the good work.

Thank you for a trip down memory lane! Towards the end of his USAF career, Dad (Carl A. Lindberg, Sr.) was stationed at four AC&W stations:
1960-61 Sioux Lookout, Ont.CA/915th;
1961-63 Baudette, MN/692nd;
1965-66 Fire Island, AK/th; and,
1967-69 Blaine, WA/757th.
While small and in rural-to-remote locations these were Dad's favorite assignments, because I believe that they offered more focus on the mission and on fishing (which I still enjoy today). Of the four , only King Salmon was remote, so the family staid in the CONUS, except for me. I began my four year enlistment in the USAF with tours in Fuchu AS, Japan and Offutt AFB, NE as an intell type.
Sadly Dad passed away in FEB 2005. I'd like to hear from anyone that served with Dad over the years.
