Several of the inquiries I received after posting Dick Kamm's C-123 pics from Vietnam concerned F-4s. Upon delving into these I found that Dick left behind more Vietnam F-4 pics than I thought (about 350) so the following is a small sampling, but still more than I had expected to post. Sorry if it is too many. I have tried to choose ones that show not only a variety of different aircraft, but also different angles, service equipment, buildings, and maintenance procedures to give an idea of what the base looked like. Squadron and wing affiliation is as noted by Dick; I have not attempted to verify. Date of all pics is 1967-68 and place is Cahm Rahn Bay. Hope you enjoy.
