Unit: 1973 AACS AND 1248 AACS

Service or Relationship: AIR FORCE VETERAN

Comments: I was assigned to Matcom Mountain July 54 and left June 55. I was radio repmn 30452. Sometime during my tour, MATCOM and the ATRC (Taegu Control)in dowtown Taegu were split off as the 1248 AACS. The facilities at K-2 (Tower, GCA, RAPCON, Fox Howe homer and Terra George homer remained under the perview of 1973 AACS. From the notes I have read on this site, it appears the 1248th was reassimilated into the 1973rd at some point.

The other repairman on site during more than the second half of my tour was also NCOIC of the hill - T/Sgt Link. He succeded a M/Sgt Tackett (power operator) as NCOIC.

A memorable guy on the hill was an A/1C "Rosie" Rosandich who had been a controller in Berlin during the great Berlin airlift.

When I first arrived we had an orphan living with us. He called himself Kim Young Mu. He had been brought to the mountain by a power operator named Johnson (A/1C). Johnson, shortly after being rotated out, was to be discharged, planned to get married and hoped, somehow, try to adopt the boy. However, very soon after Johnson rotated out, the boy took off.

I'd like to hear from any of the people I spent time with on the mountain,

"Bill" Tribett

Comments: I was an air traffic controller at Taegu Matcon from December 1951 to December 1952. I noticed a posting by Mel Kampmann who was a tower operator at K-8 to whom I used to issue ATC clearances by landline from Taegu. I also believe Mel and I were in either tower school or ATC school at Keesler during the summer of 1951. I would be glad to hear from any who served during that time at Taegu Matcon.

Comments: In passing I noticed Gordon Nelson comments about the B-29 that crashed at K-2 hitting a crane what was at the end of 2,000 feet of unfinished concrete runway. The main runway was PSP, not as easy to spot during a morning landing. The pilot was advised of the active runway to his left of the unfinished runway which was far easier to see. On his final approach he didn't look lined up correct and was advised again. never the less he landed on the concrete and saw the crane just in time to try to
avoid hitting it dead on. The crane went between the two engines on the aircraft right side and stopped the aircraft dead in its tracks. the main damage was to the aircraft.

Comments: I just responded to an old message from BROSE who mentioned the ADF Homer site Tare George,
Here is what I wrote. By the way his email address is no longer valid.

Do you remember the night a controller was standing guard mount over the May Day weekend when everyone thought that shots had been fired.
Well, I was the controller and I flipped a pebble into the air and it hit the quonset hut and bounced back and forth between the hut and the kitchen shack a few times.

It sounded like bullets hitting the sheet metal and all in the kitchen/mess hall turned out the lights and began sneaking outside all crouched over. I was standing with my carbine slung over my shoulder just inside the sandbags and said I hadn't heard or seen a thing.

I wasn't about to tell on myself!

The next day we practiced firing our carbines by shooting frogs in the rice paddy below us.

Service or Relationship: AIR FORCE VETERAN - KOREA

Comments: They say my records burned and there is no record of my being in Korea. I had dental work at a KMAG unit as we had no dentist at first. Was treated for intestinal perisites (pin worms) on base. Took a Class 2 pilots physical at K-55?. Worked at K-2. Does anyone have any orders that include my name?
