In December 2005 C141Heaven received these photos and comments from John Funk, who works for the US Navy.
My dad (MSgt John R. Funk) is a retired Flight Engineer from the 8th ALS at McChord AFB. I grew up there in Tacoma and all through high school and college volunteered at the McChord AFB Air Museum. I worked on 65-0277 when it was transferred to the museum. Did some minor work including replacing cockpit windshield glass and general cleaning of the old bird. I've since graduated (Aero Engineering Degree, Univ of Wa) and am an Aerospace Engineer with the US Navy (EA-6B Prowler Program) in Jacksonville Fl. I went back home this past summer to attend a 62nd ALW reunion with my dad. I hadn't seen 65-0277 since it was repainted and moved to the new air park overlooking the runway. The airplane looks great! Here's some pictures I'd like to share.
