I was at NKP in MCGS Pave Eagle , Igloo White Oct 70 to July 71. I was an auto track radar tech that maintained the equipment that flew the QU22 remotely, including the remote runway portable mounted in and on 1968 Ford Broncos. Thanks for you contribution and blog.

I fly and manage one of only two flyable QU-22B's left in the world. I am setting up a FSX sim for the future pilot of the QU and would like to inform you guys that the QU you have for FSX is actually the A Model. The US Air Force built 6 of these and then modified a A-36 Bonanza to build the QU-22B(B Model or Beeech Model 1079) They built 27 of them in total. Only 25 went to South East Asia. I am willing to provide full history and pics if someone wants to build a correct B model for the sim. Please contact me. bstuder@tailwindsaviation.net Brian Studer 214-934-4828
