 I crewed this ACFT at Dyess AFB TX from 1972-1976 back then it was part of the 463rd TAC then went MAC. We took it on rotation to Mildehall England and a year or so later Frankfort Germany. While on temporary assignment to Mildenhall an artist came and took pictures of it sitting on static display at one of the hardstands. About a year or so later a I was surpised to see that a plastic model company produced it as a footlong model. I crewed the plane on a mission to Bamako, Mali in Central Africa called Operation King Grain. I was trained by Cilitus Skipwith who was a Ssgt then and my assistant bacame A1C James Lynch around 1975. It would creek and make weird noises with the power off but I never thought it was haunted.
