The box cover aircraft is from 460/DET 1, a small but doubly-staffed unit that was directly subordinate in mission operations to 7th Air Force headquarters at Tan Son Nhut Air Base. Tan Son Nhut was part of the large combination air base and commercial international airport adjacent to the South Vietnamese capital of Saigon. RB-57E aircraft derived their nickname from their call-sign which was 'Patty Lynn.' There were only four aircraft assigned but each had two rotating air crews. Mission imagery (film) was processed by the 12th Reconnaissance Intelligence Technical Sq, which was also located at the 7th AF HQ complex. Nominally they were assigned to the Huge 460th Tactical Recon Wing, to which the 12th Tactical Recon Sq (RF-4Cs)was also assigned. (Thanks to John Barlow for the history!)
