  1. Got this from a friend as he was part of the Maffs team with me. I was senior Engr. Tech. on MAFFS built by Defense Technology Labs. back in the late 60’s in San Jose, Ca. I did the first actual test flights in the C-130 at Edwards Air Force Base. We tested it on many planes in those days. Good to see it is still in use.
