On August 29th 1985 four F4D's from 160TFS Alabama ANG and two from 128TFS Georgia ANG visited Soesterberg. They were on deployment in Spangdahlem at the time.

What a great time we had in the late 70's and (early) 80's. And what a great pictures in this thread.

I will start to contribute every now and then. Here are 3 slides.

April 1980: at that time old and new, now it's historic and old. It was very late in the afternoon and the quality is not very good, but still nice.

You can see the 38+23 just behind the 37+69. Unfortunately, I just went out off film... :wink: Talking about taking a day off from school. This EB-57 was sure worth the risk!
