  1. Thanks, there is so much info out there and most of it syncs fairly well with Olds' autobiography. I am attempting to close one more possible lead with someone who was there at the same time as Col Olds. I am hopeful that it will yield the truth in this piece of history. Happy modeling to you as well!
  2. Thank you for the link/info. I'm inclined to think it was a mis-spelling as well,
  3. I am building a model of Col Robin Olds' F-4C, SCAT XXVII, AF40-829. On this aircraft the names of his WO and Crew Chief are listed as 1 LT Laferty and SSG Jarman. In my research I cannot find 1 LT Laferty anywhere, but I do find info for 1 LT Daniel L. Lafferty (with two “f's) who was at Ubon at the same time as Robin. My question is, does anyone know who 1 LT Laferty (with one “fâ€) was and did he fly back seat for any of Robin's MiG kills or was his name on the aircraft from a prior crew assignment? On the 8th TFW web site ( http://www.8tfw.org)the listing of MiG Kills shows 1 LT Lafferty (with two “f'sâ€) as having flown with Maj Combies on May 20, 1967, but no entries for 1 LT Laferty! Could the ground crew have mis-spelled his name, or is he not found anywhere on the Internet because he did not exist? And, if it was a spelling error, why is 1 LT Lafferty not listed as the back seat for any of Robin's killls? Any information of this person will be greatly appreciated, thank you in advance.
  4. Great reference pics Scott, I'm working on a Vietnam era F-4C from the time I was there, 67-69. I'm trying to find out if the C models had the navigation light on door 19 or there about as shown in your photo with you sitting next to it? My searches, including AF tech manuals, indicate they did, but I have been unable to locate any photos showing it on the F-4C and the model kit I am building does not look like it is included in the layout of the fuselage.
