Yes. at that time ,service was still mandatory. I did it in the Air force, and I ended in NTTX. and my job was to do the check-in for the Caravelle, exactly like in any civilian airport (2/3 of my pax were civilian: scientists, cooks, construction workers, ...)
I was in charge of the check-in for helicopters too. We had Alouettes 3 and Super Pumas. I had the chace to do a couple of flights too. one of those flights was a training for helihoisting. I was playing the "victim" in the lagoon. Very impressive.
