USA - Navy
Lockheed P-3B Orion
Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, September 2, 1993
Remark
Photographer
152747 / LU-07 The saga of Orion Navy color schemes continues with this photo of a Naval Air Reserve aircraft taxying to the NAS Atlanta t-line for a "pax-drop". Although resplendent in the old Gull Gray/Insignia White c/s, with colorful markings, it shows what's coming for all P-3s with both the nose radome and entire tail boom painted in TPS gray. Fortunately, the imaginative sqn. markings are intact for VP-64 Condors, NAS Willow Grove, PA (the cartoon condor figure incorporates the sqn. number "VP-64"!).

Grumman EA-6B Prowler (G-128)
Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, September 23, 1999
Remark
Photographer
158649 / AF-501 (cn MP-26) A particular trait of Prowler character is its extreme noise on take off (for its size), and here we double our "pleasure" with a section departure! The Prowler is powered by 2 P&W J-52-P-408 engines producing 11,200 lbs. for take off, and, combined with the short exhaust nozzle results in the auditory feast. These two on a Dobbins 29 departure are from VAQ-209 Starwarriors, NAF Washington (DC). The lead aircraft (503) is 161775, I believe.

USA - Navy
Sikorsky UH-3H Sea King (S-61B)
Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, January 26, 1994
Remark
Photographer
156489 / 75 (cn 61435) A light drizzle is falling at the NAS Atlanta transit line as this rescue Sea King prepares to lift off. The "peace dividend" was well underway by now, and the wholesale phase out of aircraft and units in the US armed forces had become a flood! I later learned this H-3 was on its way to D-M and I barely caught it- that same day, I also saw and photographed 2 TA-4s from VF-43 Challengers going to the same place. Nice Pax River Sea King with old c/s, International Orange accents, and well presented titles.

Grumman F-14A Tomcat
Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, December 5, 1993
Remark
Photographer
162588 / NG-200 (cn 510) Among the first fleet squadrons to receive the F-14A+ (later F-14B) in 1989, VF-24 Renegades (NAS Miramar, CA) returned to the A-model only a few years later because of consolidation of the "B" with the Atlantic Fleet. This is the Renegade CAG bird otherwise known as Rage 200, and no allowance has been made for distinctive or colorful markings...

Sikorsky CH-53E Super Stallion (S-65E/80)
Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, May 9, 1999
Remark
Photographer
165254 / 34 (cn 65-648) The monstrous Super Stallion looks rather compact with main rotor stowed and tail boom folded. This is one of several assigned to HMX-1 Nighthawks, MCAS Quantico, seen here on a Sunday morning on the NAS Atlanta main ramp. The Glossy Field Green c/s looks good on this "beast".

McDonnell Douglas F/A-18A Hornet
Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, July 25, 1999
Remark
Photographer
162879 / 42 (cn 0424/A350) US Navy Adversary units were well known for their interesting interpretations of potential enemy color schemes, and Topgun (Navy Strike and Air Warfare Center, Fallon, NV) continues the tradition with a geometric/desert pattern. The original Topgun insignia is visible on the tail, and the finish seems quite clean and probably freshly applied.

McDonnell Douglas TA-4J Skyhawk
Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, October 10, 1993
Remark
Photographer
158465 / A-765 (cn 14270) Dare I call this a calico cat? Purportedly one of the last Naval Training Command TA-4s in an adversary scheme, this was certainly one of the more interesting ones I saw! Consisting of earthy blotches, it approaches a Jackson Pollock painting in its abstract quality. Recorded at the NAS Atlanta transit line and visiting from VT-7 Tigers, NAS Meridian, MS.

McDonnell Douglas F/A-18B Hornet
Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, December 6, 1993
Remark
Photographer
161938 / MG-000 (cn 0143/B034) Triple Zilch!! The sight of any US Navy or Marine aircraft carry a triple-0 side number is rare; it's usually reserved for admirals or generals. This early production Hornet bears such a number; its assigned unit is VMFA-321 Hells Angels, NAF Washington DC, so this would pertain to the Commanding General of the 4th Marine Air Wing (Marine Air Reserve). I was informed the markings were incomplete at this point. Apparently, the general's call sign was "Clam", as seen in the blue-gray area at the top of the tail.

Lockheed S-3B Viking
Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, July 20, 1999
Remark
Photographer
160159 / NH-700 (cn 394A-3141) I don't really know what source was used to model the dragon figure on the tail of this Hoover (perhaps Japanese art?) but does look a bit crude,though interesting. This is the CAG bird for VS-29 Dragonfires, NAS North Island, CA, which had just returned from a WestPac cruise on the Carl Vinson with Carrier Air Wing 11. Strangely, the CVW-11 "NH" tail code is missing...

Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, October 2, 1992
Remark
Photographer
158464 / B-104 (cn 14269) They also come in plain white, if you prefer... Apparently, a few Naval Training Command Scooters were made distinctive from the rest of the "crowd" by foregoing the usual International Orange accents in the training c/s. This one is seen in early morning light on the NAS Atlanta t-line, visiting from NAS Kingsville, TX, where it is assigned to VT-21 Redhawks.

Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, September 10, 1999
Remark
Photographer
163409 / AC-103 (cn 593) Unusually, this VF-32 Swordsmen Tomcat is spotted on the NAS Atlanta t-line pointed toward the runway (normally they were parked parallel with it). However, it did make for advantageous lighting and I'm not complaining! Gypsy 103 is an F-14B Upgrade, having received avionics mods to allow delivery of advanced ordnance, among other things. Evidence of participation in Desert Strike attacks (12/98) may be seen on the other side of the nose...

Lockheed ES-3A Shadow
Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, March 24, 1999
Remark
Photographer
159404 / NK-727 (cn 394A-3040) The Shadow Knows! The quote from the old radio program would also fit this extensively modified version (16 conversions) of the Viking with the mission of electronic recon. and intelligence gathering. I understood the Shadow- as it was named- was due to be retired during 1999, so I was quite surprised when the only chance I had to see one came in the form of the very colorful CAG bird of VQ-5 Sea Shadows, Agana, Guam. I recall it was on its final trip to Davis-Monthan...

Lockheed C-130A Hercules (L-182)
Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, February 14, 1990
Remark
Photographer
56-0531 (cn 182-3139) Red Hawk Herk?? The 142nd Fighter Interceptor Group, Oregon Air Guard, Portland, OR, was transitioning from the F-4C Phantom to the F-15 Eagle, and at about the same time received a new operational support aircraft in the form of this C-130A (many ANG units replaced their old OSA's with C-26 Metro's, but Oregon and a few others went to C-130As). Almost certainly visiting Dobbins and the Georgia ANG 116 TFW (F-15s) concerning Oregon's transition, I happened to be by the runway when it departed. Gloss Aircraft Gray c/s with a replacement Europe 1 panel on #4 engine nacelle.
