Stopped there a couple of times while flying from Rota to JAX and back. Big thing was for everybody to pick up a few cases of Portuguese wine on the way back to Rota.

Well, I can say that I drank A LOT of that! They did also have some good local cheese....

I should mention, that the women there, girls actually, were knockouts! Trouble was they were all mostly jailbait with a capital J! Many of the guys there married them and stayed there thier whole enlistments. Very cheap to live, good US military bennies, etc. Trouble was that it was virtually impossible to find one there that was of legal age (except for the ladies of the evening).

We used to load 100 to 200 cases on a KC-135.
