    NKP Air Force vet

    Sa Wa Dee, Cup.

    I was stationed at NKP 1971-1972, was the crew chief of A-1E 857, the last Skyraider.
    Love to chat about NKP, the Air Force, Thailand in general, etc.

    Would I recognize the town if I went back? (yes, Ho Chi Minh clock tower)

    I believe that is where they train Thai air force pilots now. Welcome aboard Sarge.

    Thailand made out like a bandit when the Yanks finally pulled out in '76...

    Quite a number of exceptionally operational [in some cases - huge] air fields scattered throughout the country...

    Not to mention, Pattaya. The only surefire winner of that war was Thailand.

    The US Army corps of Engineers sure know how to build stuff, kudos.
