Started by Vegas Vic Mar 24, 2016. 0 Replies

I'm doing some research and would appreciate feedback from those who were station dito at Cubi or SRF in 1990-91. Personally, I was there in the early 80's so much of my recollection is irrelevant…Continue

There was a P-3 that was lost at sea shortly after I was stationed there in '79,not sure if they found it,seemed like the sky was teaming with them then.I remember the first jet from the incoming carrier use to "Buzz" Olongapo when they first arrived,some so low blew tin off some roofs,but the locals did not care,they just raised the beer prices.

I remember a P-3, one that transferred from Sangley pt., that crashed in the bay about a minute after takeoff. Someone serviced an engine with some kind of solvent instead of oil. That was in "71 I think. I ran the AME shop at the paraloft. We mostly serviced squadrons with LOX, but did some AIMD maintenance.

I am looking for anyone stationed at Cubi or Subic that remembers the mudslide that buried the Operations Buildings at Cubi Point in 1970 or maybe 1969. Also the F-4 that flamed out and crashed on the mountain below the O club. I was in V4 fuels.

The official date of closure was Nov 24 1992,but the base never recovered after the volcano blew in 1991.

I have to openly admit that I have never missed any place I have been like I do the Philippines and especially Subic Bay. My plans are to take the money from my VA disability award and go back. If I think I can return there and survive, well I am gone. I served two tours stationed in Subic Bay plus numerous port calls during my 15 1/2 years in the Navy. If I make it there I would like to meet Kevin and any others who have taken up residence there.
