This book was based on the Kyushu Gypises at K16 Yong Dong Po near Seoal Korea early 50s There mission was to move wounded service men and women for treatment. The squadron flew C- 47s they also delivered mail, carried rations to all the bases in Korea. We also hauled the USO shows to different bases.The book THE GREATEST AIRLIFT was also written about this unit.There was also a Greek squadron that flew with the Gypises . The only C 47 from that era still in use is a Greek plane stationed in Greese.The AirForce personal that was stationed there still hold annual reunions each year. The unit was broken up in 1955, we have a news letter we receive once a month. It keeps us posted on old friends and comrades.
