They performed photographic reconnaissance with the AQM-34 tactical drones. These were launched from DC-130 Hercules aircraft and after they had completed their mission were recovered (in flight!) by the CH-3 helicopters

As I remember it became part of the 432nd TAC group in 1970 and in 1971 we became the 11th TDS. The drones as I recall were Firebees. The C-130 were 496 and 497. We were part of a Sperry Rand drone development project.
