There were four operators
of the Bonnie and Clyde shovels, assigned to them in 1969. Tommy Hudson and
Charlie Ward were on nights and Balzer and unknown were on days. Does anyone
remember the other day time operator? During MCB 11's tour at Phu Loc
all the previous production records were surpassed, including quarry tonnage
production, total flex base tonnage production, total miles constructed,
etc. In short we worked our butts off for six straight months.
