Other crew members were: Plane Captain Willie Sherborne, Accoustics Operator Carl Trippett and later Fritz Miller, Julie/ECM Thom McCaughey, MAD/Flight Tech Bob Amburgy, Radio Lou Spicuzza, Ordnance Dave Franz (or Franzen - can't exactly remember which) and I also can't recall the name of the Second Mech.
