All fantastic shots. I must say the early Soesty photos are the most 'disturbing' still... :cheers:

Amazing pics!! BTW, the badge worn on the tail of the Daggers (and on the chest of the crew chief..) resembles the 86th TFW/FW/AW emblem. What's the reason for this? Was this 32nd FIS (maybe administratively) attached to the 86th during this period?

I'll look that up for you. This is the same patch the crew chief was wearing, the Wolfhounds patch of the 32nd Fighter Interceptor Squadron. I obtained it during a visit to Camp New Amsterdam in 1967 and I still have it in my possession.

Grtz,

The 32nd FIS was attached to the 86th AD (Air Divison) from 1960 untill 1969. From there it was attached to the 17th AF (Air Force). Hope this helps...

:uhuh: I see them fine, it's just that those 'hurt' a little more than the other 'painful' images..! :wink:
Having said that, my own stuff parked on what is now Ziggo was n/a yesterday. :down: Fingers crossed that was an incident (it is, so far).
