As a pilot in the 1607th Air Transport Group, I was in the 40th ATS Squadron (C-124’s) with
Major Matt Frieda from Jan1955 – Jan 1958. While I was not on this particular mission, it was interesting
reading about some of the more detailed aspects of the trip.

If the museums C-124 cockpit is open sometime, I would like to see it again since I spent so much time there.
