A fellow F-105 Thunderchief Fighter Pilot

Major Ed Cappelli, better known as "Cappy" was in my class at Nellis AFB, NV from Jan'67 through Jul'67, in training to become a F-105 fighter pilot headed for the conflict in Vietnam. I worked with Ed on a daily basis, and also flew with him on bombing missions to North Vietnam from Sep'67 until he was shot down over the Hanoi area. We were both in the 355th Tactical Fighter Wing at Takhli RTAFB. I enjoyed his humor, and easy going style. I was also shot down near Hanoi, but was able to fly my F-105 out to the Gulf of Tonkin before ejecting from the aircraft. The US Navy pulled me from the Gulf, and I was back in Takhli in time to have dinner with the guys I flew with. If you have a chance to read a book by G.I. Basel titled "Pac Six", you can get a better view of Cappy, and how he fit into the group of F-105 pilots at Takhli. I wish his family the best for the future.
