Journal History

One of my biggest regrets during my time in the USAF was that I never got assigned to Europe.

During the 1980s and 1990s, the Cold War necessitated a huge number of USAF bases all over Europe. There was also a wide variety of mission aircraft based at these bases; F-4s, F-15s, F-16s, F-111s, A-10s, C-130s, KC-135s, C-9s, C-12s, C-23s, to name some of the types.

Here is a look back at some of the USAFE jets I was able to photograph here in the states.

Oddly enough, of the units pictured in this group the only base that remains open to this day, is Spangdahlem AB, Germany.

I hope you enjoy the photos!

US aircraft amazes me! Me and my fam never miss an airshow down in Chino, CA, and my volunteering there has brought some good memories! By any chance, do you have a pic of a Vought F4U Corsair? They're my favorite WWII plane.

f16crewchief.deviantart.com/ar… Here is a FG-1 I shot at Oshkosh in 1980.

I think it is the only Corsair I photographed.
