<span style='color:blue'><span style='font-size:14pt;line-height:100%'><span style='font-family:Arial'>During the time I was station at McClellan from October 1963 to July 1966, one of our EC-12D aircraft threw a prop in flight. The propeller cut through the aircraft behind the RO position. Does anyone remember the tail number of that aircraft? I think it may have been Triple Nickle.</span></span></span>

I was there also, but I believe it was either "133 or 135" AC involved. I spent a lot of time on Triple Nickle and do not remember it being the AC involved. Cheers 552EMS Tech

I believe you are right in that it was either 133 or 135. Triple nickle was a good luck plane while I was at Mac from 1964 to 1967 as a radar tech. with the 552 EMS
