Guy Metcalf


Guy Metcalf served in the United States Air Force during the Korean War. He discusses with his friend, Harold Maples, the refueling stations around Cold Bay, Alaska used during the Korean War. As part of his role during the war, he calculated the range of the DC-4, known as the Skymaster. The Skymaster was a four-engine, long range, heavy transport used by the United States and Canadian Air Forces along with the United States Marine Corps. They discuss the refueling needs for the Skymaster in the Aleutian Islands in the Bering Sea and the use of Shemya Island.
