Takhli Royal Thai Air Force Base
1969 - 355th Tac Fighter Wing
We're fortunate to have four members of the 601st Photo Squadron onboard the Takhli roster; Jack Gurner, Dave Snow, John Evans and Steve Wilson. These four photo pros have contributed this collection of excellent images documenting the aircraft, the base, the pilots and support troops and the people of Takhli village. If you enjoy the galleries - you might take a moment to acknowledge the contributors and their work at Takhli - each gallery will include an email address.
The Jack Gurner Photo Gallery - Jack was a photographer at Taklhi 69-70 and has a load of of photos from his tour and his work in the Photo Shop. Great stuff and this is the tip of John's iceberg of images. The 355th TFW highlighted - Thuds, EB-66's, Col. Bo Bottomly. It's all here.
