67 FS family tree collection

Recommended Posts

As promised on facebook I'm publishing shots of my latest collection completed. The family tree history of the 67th Fighter Squadron currently stationed at Kadena AB, Okinawa Japan. The 67th was established in 1941 in Louisiana flying P-36 aircraft. According to Wikipedia they moved around the states for a year until they deployed to the south Pacific in 1943 and began flying the P-39/P-400. They moved to the Philippines in late 1944 and began flying the P-38 until the end of the war. The 67th was slated to become the first jet unit in the Pacific flying the P-80. Once the Korean war began the switched to the F-51and flew ground support. The transitioned to the F-86 during the last year of the war and flew it until the mid 50s when they transitioned to the F-100D. The flew that until the early 60s when they transitioned to the F-105D/F which they also flew in Viet Nam. In 1967 they transitioned to the F-4C which they flew until 1979 when they transitioned to the F-15C/D which they still fly today.

Excellent! All so different, but yet all having a common thread. Great work all the way 'round!

Back in the mid 80s I completed a family tree of the Eagle Squadrons/4th Fighter Wing which I gave to the wing to present their heritage, last year the historian told me the Spitfire was missing so I replace it. When I delivered the Spit I discovered their Hurricane, F-86, F-4E, and F-15E were also missing. The Hurricane was later discovered in another display (damaged). I have an F-15E (Revell) I can replace that with and another one for my own collection in progress but I'm not sure I'm going to replace the others unless it's on commission this time. The last collection I finished before this that I intend to rebuild in part at sometime is the main 8 jets of my career 4 each F-4E, 3 F-15C and an F-15D.
