Below is an album of some of Bill's photos of Ethiopia and points beyond.

Index of photo caption text to follow.


W. T. Phillipson arrived Addis Ababa on 22 August 1968 and departed on 1 June 1970.

Bill was originally assigned as Crew Chief for the UH-1B's and UH-1H's but later transitioned to the C-47 (R4D) N17203. This picture was taken after he drove a Deuce and a half (2 1/2 ton) fuel truck for 48 hours with no sleep in order to beat the rainy season.

 There may be more flattering photos of Bill on this site, but I think this one represents him best.
