Very Cool. I think I was at Hahn AB this day. I was there from July 85 to July 87. It was a great place to be stationed.

Bill Bozeman?? Sounds familiar, maybe not, but I was in the 50th Transportation Sq. from 84-86 then sent to NoDak...

I left Hahn the year before this pic, but it brings back a lot of memories. I worked in the hospital from 81-84... some of my fondest memories were made there. Would love to have contact with anyone from that era. Clarence Castile

Was stationed at the "Rock" from 1981-1986! Worked at the "Load Barn", Weapons Systems (462X0). I still remember that day. Had to set up munitions static display for the show. Hahn was a great time and I do miss it. Al Tollinchi, Ocoee, Florida.

Was stationed there from 1985-1990. Worked in AGS and was at the Air Show. Traveled the country and had a great time with a lot of fond memories. The wife and I would love to go back to Germany in the future. Mark Schwery, Puyallup, WA.

I was at Hahn AFB, 1955 to 1959. We had F-86H's, F-86D's and no Berlin wall yet. Lt. Col. Chuck Yeager (Bell X-1 pilot and the first person to break the sound barrier) was the squadron CO of the F-86H squadron and Hahn was the center for the 701st Tactical Missile Wing with the TM-61 Matador missiles. I was editor and photographer for the Hahn Hawk, the base newspaper. My duty was really great as I got to travel a lot, meet a lot of famous people and set up tours to the wine festivals along the Mosell. I had an absolutely wonderful time and I still miss Germany. I got there just 3 months before the Hungarian revolt. That and the Suez Canal crisis were scary times as we had nuclear warheads for the zero launch missiles and nuclear weapons for lab with the F-86H's. We were within range of the Russian missiles and aircraft in the East Zone and full alert for days at a time.
