John Richards' Quick Biography

I was an Aircraft Electrician in the 483rd CMS Squadron from November 1970 to November 1971.  I worked at Cam Ranh, Bien Hoa, and Can Tho.  I spent a lot of time at Bien Hoa and did a lot of field trips to repair broken aircraft.  The photos, below, are from one of the more memorable of those field trips.  I also did a lot of morning launches, riding around in the maintenance launch truck, helping to blow out mags and get engines started.
