is a collection of movies and slides taken by me while stationed in Korat,
Thailand in 1966-67 as
an Airman First Class in the US Air Force. During that time I was on a
munitions load team, loading weapons on the F105 Thunderchief.
was an avid photographer, in both Super 8 MM movie and 35 MM still
photography. During a military reunion I showed my old films and photos
and received many requests for a copy. That gave me the idea to make
this available on eBay to share with you.
you were at any base in Thailand
during the war I promise you this will bring back a flood of memories.
If you were not there but know someone who was, family or friend, buy this
for them. They will thank you for it. If you just want to see
some history through the eyes of a vet that was there, buy this.
addition, there is a section on Lowry AFB in Denver,
Colorado taken in 1964. Includes
movies and slide shows of Airmen at training school. The Beatles had
just come to America
then and there are funny photos of guys wearing Beatle wigs, making fun of
their long hair. Little did we know that long hair was going to rule
for years. See history in the making.
original Super 8 MM film has been digitally scanned, frame-by-frame and
converted to DVD. There is no flicker or hot spot such as found when
old film is just video taped off a projected movie.
are some flight-line shots but the vast majority of the work concentrates on
life around the base and off-base, including the wild night life, nudge-nudge
say no more.
movie is in color but many of the still photos are monochrome. The
slides were shot in color. All photos were shot with a Pentax Spotmatic
35 MM camera, except the Lowry photographs.
You also receive, at no cost, a CD of photos in .jpg format and some audio files. The
audio is of the house girls, inside the Airman’s Club, and inside a bar with
the live band. These clips are only a few minutes long but it sure hits
home. You will love to hear those sounds again. The CD has no
movies because the movie files are too big to fit on a CD.
name will be printed on the face of the DVD, like this: “Created for (your
name)”. I'll use the shipping name unless you specify otherwise.
If you email me a .jpg picture of you in uniform or any photo you like, I'll
put that picture on the face of the DVD at no charge. I don’t change
“Robert” to “Bob” etc. so be sure to tell me how to print the name, unless
the shipping name is exactly what you want. I read the comments area of your PayPal
payment so that is a good place indicate your preferences. The DVD is rated PG and the CD is PG-13.
do not provide narration during the movies. You see it just as I saw
it. Let your mind do what my mind did when I shot it, just look and
wonder. There is background music but if it does not fit your taste
just hit the mute button.
Instant payment is required via PayPal. I think you will be
satisfied but if the product does not meet your expectations you are not
stuck. I will give you full refund with a simple email from you
requesting a refund. If, for any reason, the DVD does not work, or you
receive it damaged, I will replace it upon request on good faith and I pay
the postage for the replacement.
Why do I require instant payment? First of all, I can truly say no one has ever refused to pay and I have never had a refund request. BUT - I have had slow payers and that kills me because I can not print the DVD/CD until I receive payment which messes up my work flow. I can not print the DVD/CD until I know what name you want printed on them which I get from the notes on the PayPal statement.
I ship within hours when possible but never more than one business day from the time I see your order.
You will receive instant positive feedback from me as soon as I process your order.
I charge the $5.00 postage for international because
I have to use a heavy duty shipping package, drive to the Post Office round
trip, fill out international paperwork, stand in line and just generally spend
more time and money for international shipping.
this to domestic shipping where I simply put postage on it then drop it
in my mailbox at home and you can understand the $5.00 S&H for
