William Mackie



William Mackie attended Albany State from 1955 to 1957, later graduating from West Point and joining the US Air Force. He served as a navigator on reconnaissance aircraft, primarily the RC-135. This photograph was taken in late 1963 on the beach of Paeng-Yang-Do, an island off the western coast of North Korea which belongs to South Korea. When the tide was low, the beach served as a runway. When he retired from the Air Force, he had reached the rank of Colonel (0-6)
