This picture was taken in front of Base Operations at Sembach in about 1960.
The pictured C-47 "Gooney Bird" was assigned to Sembach. It happened to be parked in this position near base ops that day, and I used it to frame the picture.
Of note in the picture is the "pastel" pink color
of the building (all Sembach buildings were painted in pastels
during that era); also noteworthy are the two YELLOW Volkswagen
pick-up trucks assigned to Transient Alert as "follow-me"
vehicles, a red O-10 crash truck, an M-series "6X6"
based water tanker, and the blue "weapons carrier".
I believe the blue vehicle parked next to the yellow follow-me
VW's is also a VW pickup, parked facing the building, rather
unusually equipped with bows and a canvas top.
