It is snowing today in Kansas so I thought I would scan some slides. I happened upon a box of F-4 pictures I have not seen in a while...
When I was assigned to Osan AB, ROK in 1988 to 89, I was fortunate to be assigned to go TDY to Hickam AFB, HI to transfer some of the 51st TFW's F-4Es back to the US for conversion to F-4G Wild Weasels, as well as transferring our brand new F-16C Block 30 on their way out to Korea.
We departed Osan in a C-130 to get out to Kadena AB, Okinawa. The next morning we boarded a 22d ARW KC-10A and escorted three former 51st TFW F-4Es to Hickam. From Hickam, they would pick up another tanker in a few days to take them to Ogden ALC at Hill AFB, UT for the F-4G conversion.
Between refuellings I got on the headset and asked the crews to pose the aircraft behind the KC-10s so I could take some 'portraits' of the jets.
I hope you enjoy the shots!
