Last night, I was browsing the 'net for C-133 stuff. A couple of places had entries to the effect that the airplane was such a problem that the AF did not send it to very many places off the usual MATS/MAC routes. Well, I just had a fascinating piece from George Stoner, about a trip to Addis Ababa. Off the top of my head, I can think of descriptions of missions to Antarctica, various places in India, Congo, an old Luftwaffe base in far northern Norway, Thule, Nord, BW-8, American Samoa, Amman, Cochabamba, Woomera, Kunsan, lots of small places in VN, Belgium, Netherlands, Wheelus, Lima, Howard and on and on. From all I've learned in the past seven years, there were no limits on where the old bird went or what it carried.
