I've finally had an opportunity to view your site and I found it most interesting. You certainly have my permission to display any photos/data concerning my ejection.
I should have more free time in January and I will see if I can locate any info that may be of use to you. Please contact me if you have any specific request.
Cheers,
Don Scott

FEEDBACK

I was with 421 g/c from 1978 - 1981 then back again as a m/cpl in 82...I loved my time there, and the only reason I retired early (frp in92) was for the ground crew it had gotten to political.  I hope to take my wife to Germany  (and Normandy) in the next coupla years, and I sure hope that if I take her to our old base the A/C are still on their pedestals,, though I doubt it.....

FEEDBACK

I can answer a couple of questions asked at the site:

25 April 1969 – the real Reg White is the lower picture.

 27 April 1970 – D. R. Graham is correct – the other Graham was a DND civilian engineer who was well connected to the CF-104 world in his positions at AETE in Cold Lake and later in Airworthiness in the Aerospace Engineering and Maintenance Branch at NDHQ.

 A couple of name corrections:

 5 July 1965 – the surname is THOM, not THORN

 14 April 1970 – same problem as above – the surname is THOM, not THORN – I do not believe that they are related.

 Interesting web page – good stuff – I’ll be back again.

 Cheers…. Rae Simpson (about 1350 hours in the CF-104)
