From an AMARC visit in early October 1994, this is the Sikorsky CH-54A Tarhe serial 67-18415 pcn HG 001 last operated by Co D 113th AVN / NV ARNG. She entered AMARC September 1992 and left July 1995 to Erickson Crane, OR. A remarkable flying machine.
This photo was taken from the window of the AMARC tour bus 9th October 1994, the unmarked F-14A Tomcat to the fore was last operated by VF-201 'Hunters' out of NAS Dallas, she entered AMARC 6th July 1994 and was still wearing fresh spraylat. Long gone now
Back to an AMARC tour on 9th October 1994. Former VXN-8 UP-3A 'JB-04' was on display on 'Celebrity Row', sadly her 'Tasmanian Devil' artwork was located on the shady side. She had been in store for four years when I photographed her.
This was the debut demo of the West German Navy Tornado IDS, certainly in the UK if not anywhere else. The F-104G was still in service with the WGN at the time and they sent both the then new Tornado IDS and The Vikings F-104G team to Air Fete 86.
back to 21st June 2009 and the Kemble Air Day, this is the F-86A Sabre serial 48-178 and the world's oldest flyable jet. Sadly she has been returned to the USA however I was happy to be able to take this photo of her, now coming up to ten years ago.
Early October 1999 and this was a row of F-111 tail fins. To the left is F-111A 67-0091 as previously posted here, then EF-111A 66-0051 marked as CC/429ECS, then F-111F 73-0710 CC/Hounds with much farewell graffiti, then EF-111A 67-0038.
Back to October 1999 and this was C-141B 66-0205 marked CR0031, she was last operated by the 57th AS / 97th AMW out of Altus AFB, OK. Entered AMARC January 1997 and disposed of September 2003. She was not in good shape when I took this photo.
