from Glendale, AZ United States
A letter from Paul Jenkins to me in acquiring info on the 116th AHC Hornets.
The Yellow Jackets, Wasps and Stingers were the three platoons that made up the Hornets. Yellow Jackets were the 1st Platoon and each pilot had a call sign from 10-29. I was in the 1st Platoon and my call sign was Hornet 28. The Yellow Jackets had a yellow Hornet painted on the nose and the front of the tail was painted yellow. The Wasps were the 2nd Platoon and had call signs from 30-49. Their ships had white Hornets painted on the nose and white on the tail. The Stingers were the 3rd Platoon and were gun ships. Their call signs were from 80-99. They had red Hornets painted on the nose of their ships and red painted on tail.
Hornet 28 2/67 - 2/67
