Lt Col Halliwell may have been the pilot who flew #444 aircraft. it landed at k55 with engine problems. marine base. I helped repair the aircraft and he was asked by marines to do a few slow rolls on his return to k13. marines had painted on the bottom of the aircraft “JOIN THE MARINES” some hell was said about that. I was an A&E mechanic at K13 early 53-54. worked in the old lean to shop. also was a hydraulic mech there and at Holliman AFB. AF 1952-1956 US ARMY 1961-1969
