Changing the 32nd into the 78th?

Changing the 32nd into the 78th? This is what I found on the Wikipedia page of the 78th Air Base Wing.

Re: Welke Eagles kwamen op 13 maart 1991 terug op Soesterber

Het nieuwsbericht zegt inderdaad drie Eagles. Maarja wat zijn de serials? In het scramble magazine kan ik ze niet vinden.

Welke Eagles kwamen op 13 maart 1991 terug op Soesterberg?

Wie heeft voor mij de serials van de Eagles die op 13 maart 1991 terug kwamen van de Golf op vliegbasis Soesterberg? Ik ben bezig met een boek over de geschiedenis van het 32ste en wil deze details graag opnemen in het boek.

32nd Wolfhounds Phantom met shark mouth

Een 32nd Wolfhounds kist met een shark mouth kwam volgens mij niet zo (heel) vaak voor. Weet één van jullie wat de reden is dat deze Phantom (68-0443) er in 1972 van was voorzien? Image

Serial voor de MLM Phantom?

Vraag me af of de Phantom die het MLM heeft verkregen nog een speciale 32nd serial zou moeten krijgen? In iedergeval niet de 68-0422, 68-0433, 69-0266 of 74-1051 lijkt mij want die zijn neergestort tijdens hun Wolfhounds periode. Wat is jullie idee/mening?
