Here is the original CT-39G maintenance crew circa 1974, at Capodichinno after a personnel inspection. Most of those pictured went to the factory school in St. Louis and brought the planes back to Naples. AMS2 Straten painted the JM and VR-24 on 159361, 159362, and 159363. ADJC Harding ran the show and AMS2 Straten was night check supervisor and Aircrewman . There was one original aircrewman for three aircraft, Mike Knowlton. No one ever saw much of Mike.
