I was stationed at NAF Washington DC (Andrews AFB) in 1966-67 where I worked on VC-118B's 128423 & 128433. I've been looking for some photos. Ours had bare metal bellies instead of the grey paint. But this shot shows good detail. You can almost make out the squadron number on the tail.

I was the flight engineer on this very plane in the Navy in 1970 at NAS Los Alamitos, CA It was the fastest of the fleet we had, 131616, 131615, 131593, 131594 all where slower. We actually picked up the plane in Dothan, AL after a P&R service session. After a complete inspection and test flight,we took off with minimum fuel, and had to declare an emergency in NAS Pensacola, FL to refuel !! Wonderfull planes, a real workhorse. Lots of fond memories...flew fast and high, as long as you has both cabin superchargers operational! D. Chruma, Bottineau, ND
