She looks amazing! My father, Alfred Adams, flew this beautiful lady out of Takhli in 1969 under the name of "Underdog II". She had been flow the previous year by Peter Foley as "Foley's Folly" and "Ohio Express", which is probably why Circleville was excited to have her. She is a great plane.

She's Beautiful! My father (Col. Al Adams, USAF Ret.) flew her our of Takhli in 1969 under the name 'Underdog II'. She had been flown out of Korat the previous year by Peter Foley ('Foley's Folly' and 'Ohio Express'). My dad and I found her in the AMARC boneyard at Davis-Monthan in 1986. She was one of three 105's left, and we never knew what her final demise was. I am so happy that she didn't go to scrap. Being on display is a fitting end for this beautiful lady.
