Thumbs up Salina, a great venue!

My father was based there at former Schilling AFB 1960-62 where he was contracting officer for the Atlas ICBM program. I remember the based ramp covered in B-47 bombers and KC- 97 tankers.

Caution: the wind seems to blow all the time.

Coincidentally,the river, area, and local bombing range are all called Smokey Hill.
