The following base were used by the VRC-50: NAF Atsugi, Japan: was probably the most visited det site for the Foo Dogs. Supporting the USS Midway and later the USS Constellation.

NAF Kadena, Okinawa: Yet another location for C-2A dets supporting carrier battle groups.

 

 


 

Different C-2A Tails of the VRC-50. At the present time I don't know which one was used in Vietnam or in Kuwait. Any help is much appreciated. Thanks
