Exercises Coronet Crested Cap & Brave, Leeming & Finningley

Post by awacs »

Hey Guys,

A little surprise for this evening.
Some nostalgia from 1982 when the Americans were very very busy handling the situation with the Russians wich resulted in some major exercises in Europe held from 1970 till 1997.
A look back when a total of 12x F-4C Phantoms 131 TFG/110 TFS, St. Louis, Missouri ANG were based at RAF Leeming and 12x F-4D Phantoms 183 TFG/170 TFS, Capitol Airport, Illinois ANG were based at RAF Finningley.

A great website with a good overview of all these exercises is: http://www.sharpshooter-maj.com/html/deploy82.htm

Hope you enjoy these beasts!!

Cheers,
Reinier
