 I was the first Crew Chief for this aircraft. It arrived for service with just under 6 hours of flight time at Williams AFB in Arizona. This was early 1969 I believe.
I pushed this this aircraft to 2000 hours of Pilot training before Sept of 70 or my discarge from the service. It maintained the orginal engines for the first 2000 hours. I was able to make sure this happened due to my AFSC status of both an Air Craft Maintanence and Jet Mech. Each time the aircraft went in for inspection on the 200,400,600,800, and 1000 hours I would walk it thru the tear down and repair of the engines and aircraft. This aircraft was subjected to one of Arizona's sand storms that red X's all of our aircraft that where on the fightllines due to foggy canopy's. I hand polished out the canopy's with cigarette ashes and Colgate tooth pastes to restore
clear vision. This aircraft was the first to fly after the storm.
I had the privliage of flying in 152 on 2 occations. what a rush to be able to fly in a aircraft that you have maintained.
She was a beautiful bird and I hope that she continues to fly.
