I have not heard from or about any of them. I believe Darden's first name was Steve. Zane Cooley is currently living in Montana and flying for a hospital. He has done some impressive things with his flying career from teaching to various flight environments and aircraft. Those were definitely some of my fondest and favorite years of my life. I was fortunate to work with a great group of men and do things that you definitely can't do in the civilian world.
If you get the chance, search the web for Feucht and see how the airfield has changed. It is now a truck stop on the autobahn.
I do remember you from Germany. Are you still living overseas? What are you doing nowadays? I am currently working as a Tactical Flight Observer with the Orange County Sheriff's Office. Just celebrated 17 years of marriage and have three daughters.
