    Seeking 1990 flight records of a C-130

    Joe Loomer Newbie

      Looking for the record of a flight I was on in the of fall 1990 - a C-130 crew swap from Hellenikon AFB in Athens, Greece, to Naval Air Station, Rota, Spain.  We were diverted mid-flight to Naval Air Station Sigonella, Italy to pick up an injured sailor and take him to Rota's Naval Hospital.

          Dear Mr. Loomer,


          Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!


          Military records in our custody do not include flight manifests, cargo manifests, or passenger lists.  These are not considered permanent records.  Under normal Department of the Air Force and Department of the Navy records management procedures, such documentation would be destroyed after initial administrative use. 


          Individual Flight Records of separated Air Force personnel and Aircrew Mission Flight Data are maintained for 56 years. For information concerning the location of these records, we suggested that you contact Mr. Tommy W. Lee, Records Manager, Department of the Air Force, 1800 Air Force Pentagon, Washington, DC 20330-1800 or email usaf.pentagon.saf-cio-a6.mbx.af-records@mail.mil or call 703-695-6609.


          For Navy squadron records, please review the Naval History & Heritage Command Naval Aviation Histories website.


          We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
