The 664th Reunion for 2018 will be hosted this year at the old
664th Radar Squadron located in Bellefontaine, OH on

JUNE 22, 23, 24 of 2018

In addition to all of the activities listed in the attached
schedule of events that are listed in this PDF flyer,

you will also have the opportunity to visit the the
USAF Museum Of Aviation
located at Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton, Ohio. This is
about a 45 minute drive down from Bellefontaine, OH.
  There are now 4 very large hanger plus the rocket display
area
with a fifth hanger now under construction. It seems
that they do not have enough room for all of the planes!

Take a look at some of what you will be able to see at the museum
up close and personal.  You can actually touch a lot of the planes.

Above is the Radar Site on the East end of the Dauphin Island taken from a 1962 postcard which is shown in full size.  Should anyone have a better copy of this card - please contact me to arrange getting a new scan of it for inclusion here.

The enlarged area shown below is of the eastern end of Dauphin Island.  You can see both Fort Gaines (Established in 1821) at the tip on the water line and adjacent to it, the 693rd Radar Squadron as it appeared in 1962.

These two pictures are from a 6 X 9 inch postcard published in 1962.  The distributor was Dexter, Inc., and the card or print number is 30361-B ~ PH68535.  Published by Thigpen Photocolor, Inc., 163 State Street, Mobile, Alabama.

 The caption on the back of the post card reads:
"Fleecy White Clouds hover over Dauphin Island Resort Center
of the Alabama Gulf Coast"
.

 

 

Remember when this hung on the dining room wall!

Remember this dining room tray?

This will then be place on display at the dining hall for all to see.
