In order to fill in some gaps in my book Choppertech I am appealing to anyone who worked with me on Fireforce between 1976 -1980 to send in whatever they can with regard to incidents or just general Air Force life. I am looking for snippets of how we lived and fought during those turbulent days.
I need your assistance as this is a story which should be told.
I would be grateful for any photographs which you would be willing to let me publish on fireforce activities (or even use for my drawings which will be in the book)
E mail me at shawzie@hotmail.com
I will be in Spain shortly and will continue posting on this site and hopefully completing the book Choppertech.

I welcome comments from everyone on my book Choppertech.
I am interested especially on hearing from former ZANLA and ZIPRA combatants who also have thier story to tell.
