HABITAT AIR-DROPPED BY THE MARINES IN A KC-130R AIRCRAFT



 

 

Bob was born in Los Angeles, California in 1940.

He served in the Air Force as a Firefighter at Carswel Air Force Base, Fort Worth, Texas. After being discharged from the Air Force he went to work for Montgomery Ward. After 30 years with Wards, he resigned his position as Merchandise Manager over 26 stores in Dallas/Fort Worth and Oklahoma.

After leaving Wards he opened his own retail stores and one was at NAS Fort Worth. While he was working at the base he started flying with the Marines of VMGR -234 as a photographer. In May of 1999 he was asked by the Marines if he could go with them and shoot a operation they would be conducting with NASA on Devon Island in the Arctic. The mission was to air-drop a habitat onto the rim of the Haughton crater and take up other supplies to Resolute Bay for the base camp. Bob flew with the Marines for the next three years to Devon Island. NASA still has operations on Devon Island.

Bob is the President of the B-36 Peacemaker Museum, Inc.

About the Museum

B-36 Peacemaker Museum evolved from a dedicated group of individuals who restored the last B-36 "City of Fort Worth". After restoration, the group began efforts to raise funds and support to display the mighty bomber inside a facility as required by the National Museum of the United States Air Force.
