WOW! King, it has been over a year or so, that I last visited "Tale of Two Airplanes". Boy, have you added so much information - I am speechless.

Too bad there is no audio for our "Laugh In" skit. It is amazing what we have available now, for making video of events. I now have 350K on my P T Cruiser and it is coming up on 13 years old this August.

Really appreciate all the work you have done over the years, in keeping the memory of Rivet Ball and Rivet Amber alive and well.

My heartfelt thanks for your web site.

Hi Res

Lt Col Hawes,
I want to thank you for your series of web pages on the Cobra Ball II memorial and the story on the crash itself. I am the son of Lt Col William Henry "Bill" Maxwell III, crewman on the that flight, and although I have known about the crash my entire life, my father will say very little about it. His reply, even to his own mother concerning details of the crash is "you don't need to know".

thank you,
Daniel J. Maxwell

My father recently passed away and I overheard a little bit about him telling my niece about working on the "Lisa Ann". I caught very little of the conversation because there was so many people in his hospital room but it sounded like this airplane was something very important, and his job was important.I had heard him talk before about going TDY to Shemya, but never knew (or payed attention) to the fact that he worked on this plane.

I decided I wanted to read a little bit about this airplane and found your website. Going through the pictures and the names I did not see any of my dad so I wanted to know if you knew him.I don't know what rank he was, he enlisted in 1959, but his name was Lawrence Blake Mason.He was good at what he did.

Thank you for your time,
Michelle Niederriter
