I was a gunner on Spooky at Da Nang in 66-67. It was the most incredible experience of my life. I met as number of great guys and have written a book about all the exciting missions--The 9-Level Gunner, the Monsoon mission, Flying the Ho Chi Minh Trail, Going North, are just a few of the exciting chapters. I am publishing it at Amazon and will bring copies to the reunion. My best Wishes to all gunship brothers. JOE BERARDINO

Lt. Col., then Major Noble L. Morton, Jr, Pilot May 1966-67, later with USAF Southern Command, I'll call Spooky South, 1967-70. Deceased 1989, father of 14 children. I would love to hear from anyone who knew him to exchange stories. Anyone who needs my phone number please call Mike Acosta One time he asked his copilot to get him a cup of coffee. When the copilot returned, my dad told him, "While you were out I had your seat air conditioned... a bullet had gone completely through the seat. The copilot was extremely grateful and said he owed my father his life and anything he ever needed, just let him know... The next time my dad asked him for a cup of coffee, you couldn't believe just how fast he flew out of his seat to get that cup of coffee."

Dennis Bell said:   November 20, 2012 8:34 pm PST

While at South Point last weekend, we ran into Tony Sprinkle (Spooky) in the coffee line. I was with my lady who lost her brother (Walter Wright) in Oct. of 1967 in an AC-47. Tony invited us to the reunion. We met guys who knew Walt. Very rewarding experience. Thanks to all my Brothers that welcomed Marilyn and myself to your reunion. USN 68-72

I had a great time in Vegas meeting old friends and new ones. Also, thanks to all who put in the hard work to make the reunion such a success. See you next year.

jack stratton said:   September 11, 2012 9:34 am PST
I left the reunion at Vegas earlier than expected not knowing for sure the impact of east coast weather on flight schedules, therefore was uable to complete all the goodby's and thank you's among everyone. A task that I've never been very good at because I always feel better at getting gone without revealing my emotional side. Sound familiar? Kind of the essensance of the spooky. shadowy part of us that we all portray at some time or another. Regardless of the self inflicted baggage I carry, nothing is more important to me than to convey my genuine heartfelt thanks to everyone that made my reunion welcome, warm and meaningful. Those that spent the hours of hard work and preperation are the same ones that added the final ingredient to complete the occasion and that is Love and Friendship.Thank you very much.

Jim Chandler said:   September 10, 2012 1:58 pm PST
It was great seeing all the Spooky brothers in Las Vegas last week. Thanks to Van and the guys for a great job. I hope to be able to make it to the next one, wherever it is.

I was at Danang AB Spookie Gunner, I was on target in the Ashaw Valley and was hit in my arm. Its still there. About four months ago, the Air Force gave me a Purpe Heart. It happened April 1969, and it only took over 40 years to recieve it.

Does anybody remember a pilot by the name of Wiley Webb? He was the second plane up out of Bien Hoa after the Last Spooky was lost on 1 Sept 69 and escorted Lt Williams home to NC.

Karen Campbell said:   July 9, 2012 4:44 pm PST
My father, Ssgt John Campbell, was an Aerial Gunner on AC-47's Nov 65 to Nov 66, Da Nang and Bien Hoa, 4th ACS. He trained at Forbes AFB, 1st ACS, in Sep 65 for AC-47's, as he was a B-52 Gunner at the time. He received the DFC in Jul or Aug 66 in country. If there is anyone who served with him, I would love to hear from you. Unfortunately, he left us on Dec 30th, 1969.

Jeff Erp said:   June 27, 2012 5:44 pm PST
My dad, Glen Erp, was in the 1st ACS and was one of the pilots in the first aircrews to fly the FC-47 (prior to the AC designation) in combat back in late 1964. I have forwarded information along to him about the reunion. I will send his contact information for your master list as well.

Junior Skinner said:   June 18, 2012 7:29 pm PST

The e-mail for Bill Pratt is bpratt15@bresnan.net and the phone number is 970.241.2248. He is weakening! I might get him to the reunion! MKP

Junior Skinner said:   June 13, 2012 6:04 pm PST
Merideth I am sure some of the guys will remember Capt. Pratt. I was at Nha Trang and Binh Thuy so I do not but I bet if you all come to the reunion he will find someone that knows him. Would you mind furnishing your e-mail address and phone number for our master Spooky list.

Meredith K. Pratt said:   June 13, 2012 4:50 pm PST
Sorry about the incorrect dates, it should have been 1965 and 1966.

Meredith K. Pratt said:   June 13, 2012 3:10 pm PST
My husband -- Bill Pratt, is a bit shy and reluctant to talk about Vietnam too much -- he was AC47 pilot , 4th Air Commandos, DaNang, 1995-1996. I am trying to talk him into going to the reunion! Capt. William J. Pratt, anyone remember him?

4th ACS Spooky Gunner 68/69 Da Nang

John Bonner said:   May 4, 2012 7:23 pm PST
It has been declassified for some time now that the 4thSOS , as it was shutting down in late '69, manned and supplied an AC-47 unit assigned to the Fighter/Recce wing at Udorn. This unit flew into mid-'70 until the mission (in Laos) could be assumed by AC-119K's. When I can get to it (and if I can find it), will forward a list of the last five active duty Spooky crews.

Junior Skinner said:   April 23, 2012 6:27 am PST

Al Sproul told me about this site - excellent. Was a Pleiku Nav from Nov, 68 until July, 69. Then the rest of the time the TS war in Laos out of Udorn until late Nov, 69. Mostly the PDJ, LS 20a, a couple to LS 85, and other interesting SPOOKY missions. Wasn't aware of Spooky happenings in Vietnam once at Udorn - seems like SOS transitioning to other gunships then. Came in country with Jim Pitches, the golden voice of the Delta. Flew a couple of missions at the same time in the PDJ before he returned to Binh Thuy and was shot down. Will try to make Las Vegas next year. Pat

I read here about Joe Berardino writing a book on Spookies... I'm interested! Is it done, and where can I purchase it? Best regards to all you Spookies!
