Aircraft Historical Records from Herb Harper

 

Just in case any one is interested, I have access to USAF historical record cards on MOST ALL aircraft. So if you have a favorite aircraft that you want the history of, I may be able to get it for you. Just give me the type and FULL serial number. The history will only give the date and place of manufactor, the cost, all units of assignment, and final disposition. It will NOT give you the COMBAT record.

Herb Harper, NCOIC weapons release & gun shop, 1969-70.
