A few things I can still recall from my Nuremberg days.
I recall an OH-58 being dropped while being slung by a UH-1H.
I remember an AFN reporter I had talked to about reforger died at a later date. The CH-47 he was in with some french and American parachutist crashed on an autobahn during an airshow at Mannheim?
I recall being put on alert when KAL flight 007 was shot down by the Russians.
I believe one or two of those blivets were dropped while being slung too.
I'm not sure of the truck model. It was one of those triple axle tractor trailers. M-993 or M889(does that sound right?). The truck had a M-113 on a flatbed. The air brakes started to fail and the assistant driver had leaned over to help the driver. Eventually the M-113 broke loose and crushed the passenger side of the cab. The two drivers did survive.
Although I did not get to meet him. George Bush came by to visit the border patrol units.
We had one of our UH-1H's forced to take off and check the weather above the fog by Col Maddox(61st). About a minute later the Huey had hit the top of an evergreen tree and did an emergency landing up near the Czechoslovakian border.It was eventually slung out by a CH-47.
I also found in the Boston Globe about two months after I had rotated to Ft Hood. This article about one of the cobra pilots from feusht had flown into Czechoslovakia with his gunship, and was chased back to W. Germany by some migs.
Well seems I can recall the bad or tragic stuff more then the good so far.
