I wish I could make this historic event but I will miss it by a couple of months. I'll be sure to drop by in the future though when I return to Mother Rucker! Geronimo 85-91, Chappy

Comments: Frank- This URL needs posting here. Many related tales are out there and need tellings invited! Thank God for "glorified beer can construction", or did the commonly used 0.05 sec delay fuse detontate the round way out past the bird? Grinning thru a frown, Hank

Comments: Frank- Comment/question here is about the CH-47 bird becoming the Army version of the USAF B-52-- Something that gits the job done, but many hate because it is "old fashioned"? Where I'm coming from here is that the CH-47 has served a long list of tasks, in different configurations over many years. I'm hearing tales about model suffexes that make me take my socks off counting them! As a former grunt, with but only one very brief "close encounter of the Go-Go Kind", I keep seeing that the close ground support Go-Go methodology was "the ultimate". No way can it git better than that! The 40 MM chin "chunker" and the 2.75FF rockets now, many years later, come off as "firecrackers", just psy-ops stuff. The "thing-a-ma-bob" that did the job was the 20 MM vulcan cannons and that huge volume of 50 cal "DM 43", that penetrated way into the ground, and made martyrs out of our opponents. In Nov '67 I experienced and was very impressed with A1 Skyraider close ground support on Hill 724. A month later, near Tam Quan, the Go-Go bird "got it right" and did what all us grunts usually prayed for when the shooting started... A few days later we had our first close support by a UH-1 Cobra. It was new and different, but long on "firecrackers" and short on the heavy duty 20 & 50 "magic numbers" that we needed. So much for the bad old days... Hoping to see 'ya in Hucksville!

Comments: What a great site! I am proud to be associated with the family of aviators who call themselves Hookers. As we have embarked on the project to restore Easy Money and I have read more and more about the Guns a Go-Go aircraft, crews and support personnel, I now understand why the Chinook community is so revered in the Army for their pride courage, and loyalty. I must admit that I got somewhat emotional when I read your dedications. I am glad that I have the opportunity to play a small insignificant part in your history. I look forward to the dedication of Easy Money and meeting all of you in Huntsville. Respectfully, Jim Caudle (Chinook - Everything Else is Just a Sling Load)

Comments: I was with B 228th from 7/67 - 7/69. It sure made my heart jump for joy when I loged on to your site and read that GO GO 9er was state side and being restored the last I heard she was in Vung Tau, this is GOOD NEWS!! I would sure like to hear from any of you guys from B228 of this period I was probably the only 300lb F/E to ever crew a CH47A I could tell some stories about these amazing birds. I remember when 54 went down what a loss we felt the GUNS where looked on with pride by all of us in the 228th. Buzz was transfered to B Co after 54 and I can remember him telling about some of their missions. There are a couple of stories I heard (not from Buzz) allegedly involving the GOGOes and wroung coordinates causing frendly fire on (1)a pacified village and (2) our troops doing a sweep of an other village, the stories I got in both cases the pilots felt something was wrong with the coordinates and called base to confirm and were told the coordinates were right and to continue the missions. In case (2) they were called off but not before 13 troops were kia by freandly fire. Is there any truth to this or is this someones war story fabrication. This is a great site keep up the good work, this can be a good forum for keeping the record straight. I look forward to seeing GOGO 9er again. Thanks, GOD bless, Mitch
