Hawaii Air National Guard photograph

This undated photograph shows Airmen repairing a jet engine. It was taken in the old Hawaii Air National Guard facilities in Area 65 before the move to the current compound in 1961.

The Airmen are wearing the old coverall uniform and two of them have Airman Third Class insignia. The current E-2 pay grade rank of Airman was called Airman Third Class from 1952 to 1967. This rank insignia was called “mosquito wings”.

Any of the retirees recognize anyone in this photograph?
