This photo was shot in 1960 at NAS Dallas when I was there for the National Model Airplane Championships. During the day the base would be closed between 8:00AM to 5:00 PM and if anything flew it was these F-86L’s that were fully armed with air to air rockets. The air guard commander let me take photos of the F-86L’s but told me to not get near the planes with three day glow strips of tape on the side for that indicated that they were fully armed for intercept. Shot with my Brownie Starflex camera.
