    I was at Sangley in 1954 and witnessed a “patrol” plane take off at dusk when only the left JATO fired – turning the airborne plane into the fuel storage area at the right end of the runway!. Tremendous explosion and fire and I could feel the intense heat at about half mile down the runway. Very little of anything was found later. Anyone remember this devastating accident?

    I used to spend some nights with Cora. Wow.. does that bring back some memories. I remember one night long after closing, some Huks pounded on the door downstairs, and I (in my matcho self) said I’d go down and find out what the hell they wanted. Cora said, stay up here… they want money..(protection money). If you go downstairs they will kill you. Pretty much got my attention. Cora’s prolly dead now. I guess prolly most everyone we knew overthere are gone by now. Remember the good, forget the bad.
