Probably my most memorable time in the US Air Force was the year I was assigned to the 8th Fighter Wing (FW) at Kunsan AB, Republic of Korea.
The 8th FW, "Wolf Pack" as it is known, has a very interesting history. In 1994/1995, the unit operated the Block 30 F-16C/D and had two operational flighter squadrons (FS), the 35th FS "Pantons", designated by a blue fin cap on the jets and the 80th FS "Juvats", designated by a yellow fin cap both assigned to the 8th Operations Group (OG). The 8th FW carries the "WP" tail code.
The 8th FW reports to the 7th Air Force, based at Osan AB, ROK and is assigned to the Pacific Air Forces (PACAF) as the Major Command (MAJCOM). PACAF is headquarted at Hickam AFB, HI.
I was assigned to the 8th OG Quality Assurance section as an inspector and weight and balance NCO. I was assigned to the 8th Operations Support Squadron (OSS) administratively, though we directly reporting to the 8th OG Commander.
Here is a look at the units, patches and aircraft assigned to the 'Wolf Pack".
I would like to thank all of you for the positive comments and favs I have gotten on my photography over the years.
Thank you and have a great holiday season!
