B/G Fred Haeffner's 58th TFTW sported some of the most colorful markings of the post-Vietnam era; 584 was his jet. One final shot of 584, now as "The Adidis", with its D-Day Invasion Stripes applied. Done nominally for air-to-air identification during dog-fight training, it really just looked cool. As a group, these aircraft were known as "The Candy Cane Air Force" on the 58th's 1976 Christmas Card. Note the CATM-9E on the left inboard pylon.
