"...picture of a group from the 66th Avionics Maintenance Squadron (1968/69) working on an Instrument Landing System problem at Upper Heyford. I believe that is Bill Pouch in the cockpit and Lee Goren on the ladder. I think the third man might be Dan Watkins."

Submitted by Ed Bardwell, 66th AMS, Oct 1967 - Apr 1970. "Another shot from the 60s. There was always a group from the 66th TRW sent on TDY to Morona De La Frontera Spain each winter to avoid the bad flying weather at RAF Upper Heyford. This is Dan Watkins , Ed Bardwell, and Tom Kelso getting ready to climb aboard the C-130 for the 30 day TDY. This shot was probably taken in the winter of 1969."

"When we were TDY in Morona De La Frontera all the Avionics people had to share a Van for the flight line. This is a picture of a group of 66th A&E relaxing between sorties. SSGTs Alexander and Dewey Griffith (shirtless) , Jeff Arnold with camera and "Hughy" Amundsen on the ground."

"As far as I know we never had a squadron patch and for a long time we were called the 66th A & E for Armament and Electronics Maint Squadron. We shared barracks space with the armament people who provided cart starts for the RF-101Cs and RF4Cs. They were a fairly small group because our aircraft were recon versions and carried no munitions. When they started staffing up for the F111s we started getting more armament personell so they were given their own squadron designation and we became the 66th Avionics Maint Sq. (66th AMS)".
