Ann F. Billau
(Senior Master Sergeant, USAF, Ret.)
I am sad to pass on to all that
Ann Billau passed away 6 Dec 03.
Ann trained to be a Post Attack Command and Control Communications
technician. She was a Student, Qualified Line Flyer, Instructor,
Standardization and Evaluation Evaluator, Non-Commissioned Officer in
Charge of the standardization and evaluation section and NCOIC of the
In-Flight Maintenance Technicians. While serving as an in-flight
Airborne Radio Maintainer, she logged more than 6000 flying hours aboard
the EC-135 "LOOKING GLASS" Strategic Air Command airborne command post and
the Commander-in-Chief Pacific "BLUE EAGLE" airborne command post.
On a personal note, I would like to pass on a memory I have
of Ann. After flying with Ann and knowing her interest in reading
and with trains, I ran across a article and picture in the Omaha World
Herald of Ann sitting on a flatbed railroad car. She had told them
she had always been interested in trains and felt comfortable at the rail
yards relaxing and reading. The next time we flew together, I pulled
out the article and went to the communications compartment. As
normal, she was working away keeping all the equipment up and running.
I tapped her on her shoulder, as she was turning around, I said "Hey, what
is a famous person like you doing in a place like this, can I get your
autograph please"? I handed her the article and she laughed.
Ann and I talked a lot on our flights and became good friends. I am
proud to have known her, flown with her, and to have called her my friend.
To her husband Rick, her son Chris, and the family and friends of a former
Crew Dog of the
"LOOKING GLASS", Ann F Billau, our condolences, she will be missed!

To the family and friends of a

we never really get to say thanks to someone who took care of us while we

were safe during all phases of the "Looking Glass" mission. He will
