This photo looks like the flight line of the Hercules, 132nd ASHC, the other CH-47 Company at Chu Lai, which came into country in the spring of 1968.
Sadao J. Hilario; Flight Engineer,
68-69 Chu Lai, Vietnam
That was the flight line for the 132nd.before I got there.When I got to Chu Lai,all that was there was the flying boxcars 178th ASHC. My squad and I of the 39th.Engineer Battalion built a ATC tower for the flight line there.
I got in country 2-1-68 as an E-2 rank and was transferred to Chu lai 178th co. about 2 wks. later. I spent the first 3 mos. on the line in maint. but signed up for crew chief and then on to a flt eng. which was very cool. I replaced Smoot on 466 who ETS'd around 1-1-69 and another name is Driscol out of Mt. so if any of you good old boys want to catch up firstname.lastname@example.org. This flt. line could have been either one. GOOD MEMORIES
