469th TFS/50th TFW. This a/c seems having served with 4 of the F-4E USAFE bases in 5 years (1978/83) (CR/RS - but I haven't seen photographic evidence of that - HR/SP). So it was a normal feature to paint the new code over the weathered old one.
9th RW Stratotanker taking off sporting the short lived BB code. One of the many KC-135Q tankers going to/from Alconbury to bring equipment for the single U-2R detachment started on September 5. See #159680 photo for the U-2.
Visit to 172nd FS "Cereal Killers" deployed for the Deny Flight. We entered the briefing room in chilly and rainy weather, thinking the day was lost. Once out we found a completely different weather as you can see!
