  1. I was a captain on Midway’s C-117D, Bureau Number 99857 in 1975-1977 and I flew it many times to Honolulu. That aircraft did not crash off Guam like the story said in the post of August 9, 2019 “Midway’s Doomed C-117”. That must have been another C-117. 99857 was purchased out of the boneyard in Arizona by a Delta Airlines captain in Florida and it flew around for some years in that part of the country. I have photos I can send you of it on the ground and in the air with Midway’s Gooney Birds on the tail . . .
