USA - Navy
Lockheed P-3A Orion
Rome - Griffiss Airpark (AFB) (RME / KRME)
USA - New York, September 24, 1986
Remark
Photographer
152180 / LV-6 (cn 185-5150) A very colorful P-3 climbs away from Griffiss on a gorgeous fall afternoon- these were certainly the "good ol' days" of Orion watching, but they were quickly ending. In a few months, all P-3s would be anonymous, and by the time the ban on markings was lifted in 1991, the TPS scheme had already begun replacing the old c/s (and colorful markings). VP-66 Liberty Bells, Willow Grove, PA.

McDonnell Douglas A-4F Skyhawk
Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, March 22, 1993
Remark
Photographer
154976 / AF-7 (cn 13792) Except for the faded and weathered underwing fuel tank, this Super Fox Scooter is pristine in a fresh coat of Gloss Engine Gray. Other than the different Bu. No., it appears much the same as another Super Fox (given this unofficial name for the uprated P&W J-52 engine) in photo 2013878, with one important difference: The code for Reserve Carrier Air Wing-20 is now seen on the tail. Now under "new management", VFC-12 Omars at Oceana, VA formerly belonged to the now-defunct Fleet Logistics Support Group.

Beech T-34C Turbo Mentor (45)
Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, February 2, 1990
Remark
Photographer
160278 / 1 (cn GL-14) This uniquely colored Navy trainer marked the first time I photographed specially marked T-34Cs from Light Attack Wing-1 and later Strike Fighter Weapons School Atlantic. The "Light Attack" designation shows the dominance of the A-7 Corsair at Cecil Field, FL, where this "Tormentor" was based for bombing range duties. The name change came with the replacement by the "strike" F/A-18. Over the next several years, I saw a number of other range aircraft from this unit.

McDonnell Douglas RF-4C Phantom II
Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, June 1987
Remark
Photographer
66-0421 (cn 2152) It's late Friday afternoon, the day before the Dobbins AFB 1987 air show, and this "Magnolila Militia" recce Phantom rests quietly on the Dobbins ramp. A few minutes earlier, it had performed a very "hot" initial approach and tight 360 into the overhead for 11 landing, all with maximum noise! Airshow arrival days were usually a lot of fun... 186th TRG, Mississippi ANG, Meridian, MS.

McDonnell Douglas A-4F Skyhawk
Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, June 1987
Remark
Photographer
155017 / NJ-621 (cn 13833) The transit lineman and the pilot watch the noisy and dramatic arrival of the Miss. ANG RF-4C while standing next to quite a showpiece of a Skyhawk. The glare of the sunlight reveals the matte finish of the paint surface, and the scheme is one of those notorious adversary color orgies! (Loosely based on Israeli desert camouflage). This sharp Scooter is on display for the 1987 Dobbins air show, coming from NAS Miramar, CA, and VF-126 Bandits.

USA - Navy
Grumman F-14A Tomcat
Warner Robins - Robins AFB (WRB / KWRB)
USA - Georgia, October 1984
Remark
Photographer
161163 / AC-112 (cn 390) Fighter Sqn. 11 at NAS Oceana, VA, provided this Tomcat as a static display for the 1984 Robins AFB air show. It is finished in a transitional (on the way to the Tactical Paint Scheme) scheme of overall Gloss Gull Gray with dark gray or black markings and full color squadron markings and trim. VF-11 Red Rippers is one of the oldest continually serving fighter units in the Navy, and the tail insignia goes back to the beginning in 1927 (the boar's head was based on the Gordon's gin label!!).

Grumman F-14A Tomcat
Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, June 1987
Remark
Photographer
161297 / NM-200 (cn 423) One Sunday afternoon, a Tomcat over Chattanooga, TN declared an emergency and was routed to NAS Atlanta. It resided there for the next 3 days while its hydraulic system was repaired, supplying me with my only chance to photograph anything from short-lived (10-86 to 4-88) CVW-10. In Hangar 1, this is the CAG bird for VF-194 Red Lightnings, full color on Gloss Gull Gray.

McDonnell Douglas TA-4J Skyhawk
Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, April 2, 1989
Remark
Photographer
155118 / C-413 (cn 13934) A nice subject for a brilliant afternoon on the NAS Atlanta t-line is this Scooter from NAS Chase Field, TX, and VT-24 Bobcats. It is painted in the standard Navy training colors of Gloss International Orange and Gloss Insignia White, with the forward portions of the external fuel tanks in matte black as an interesting detail.

McDonnell Douglas TA-4J Skyhawk
Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, May 10, 1989
Remark
Photographer
158092 / 12 Its normally lustrous Engine Gray finish has been allowed to deteriorate to a dull matte, causing this two-seat Scooter to show its age... Paying a visit to the NAS Atlanta t-line from NAS Oceana, VA, this TA-4 belongs to Fighter Composite Sqn. 12 Omars; aircraft from this unit were frequent visitors to NAS Atlanta during my time there.

Vought A-7E Corsair II
Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, April 21, 1989
Remark
Photographer
157498 / AF-302 The weathered finish of the Tactical Paint Scheme on this Corsair II makes it difficult to discern the markings, even in bright sunlight! However, the small State of Florida figure on the tail at least shows fairly clearly; from the mid-80s the attack sqn's of Reserve Carrier Air Wing 20 all used the image of their respective home states as their tail insignia. This one was with VA-203 Blue Dolphins based at Cecil Field.

USA - Air Force
Fairchild UC-123K Provider
Warner Robins - Robins AFB (WRB / KWRB)
USA - Georgia, September 1984
Remark
Photographer
55-4571 (cn 20232) Quite a crowd is gathering at the back of this old transport for a walk-through tour. Some may realize the significance of this beast with its underwing spray rig as virtually the same as Ranch Hand Providers that delivered the Agent Orange chemical defoliant in Vietnam. One of four in service, it still wears an immaculate Vietnam-style camouflage (T.O. 1-1-4)- the one I photographed at Dobbins several months later was in Aircraft Gray. 357th TAS, Aerial Spray Branch. Serial no. corrected by John Chapman.

McDonnell Douglas TA-4J Skyhawk
Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, February 21, 1989
Remark
Photographer
158488 / QZ-21 Judging by the noonday shadows, this TinkerToy has stopped in for both fuel and lunch for the crew. Visiting from NAS Willow Grove, PA where it is assigned to Marine Reserve Headquarters and Maintenance Sqn. 49, it carries a fairly decent TPS finish, though the tail code letters seem almost to have disappeared...

Boeing KC-135A Stratotanker (717-148)
Rome - Griffiss Airpark (AFB) (RME / KRME)
USA - New York, May 6, 1980
Remark
Photographer
61-0294 (cn 18201) More flight activity at Griffiss on that long ago spring morning, in this instance a "stovepipe" engine KC-135A climbs away. The ubiquitous overall Corrogard color scheme shows its metallic quality; until the early 80s, this was the only scheme for Stratotankers, and was considered boring. Also, tankers gained a spotlight at the top of the vertical stabilizer that facilitated night refuelings about the same time as the change in color scheme.

General Dynamics FB-111A Aardvark
Marietta - Dobbins ARB (Atlanta NAS) (MGE / KMGE)
USA - Georgia, June 1985
Remark
Photographer
68-0259 (cn B1-31) The 1985 Dobbins AFB air show featured beautiful weather and an amazing variety of display aircraft. One of the more interesting examples was this Aardvark from the 509th Bomb Wing at Pease AFB, NH, in what has been called the SIOP (Single Integrated Operational Plan) color scheme, which was actually a variant of the "Vietnam" T.O. 1-1-4 scheme. The "mushroom cloud" wing insignia shows clearly, as a legacy of the only operational use of nuclear weapons.

McDonnell RF-4C Phantom II
Birmingham - Shuttlesworth International (BHM / KBHM)
USA - Alabama, September 1987
Remark
Photographer
64-1047 / BH (cn 947) The rain-soaked surfaces around the 106th Tactical Recon. Sqn. (Alabama ANG) maintenance hangar attest to the severe thunderstorm that passed through. However, it turned out to be a nice day for my first visit to Birmingham airport for the 1987 show, and I enjoyed such displays as this "unbuttoned" Hill II Grays recce Phantom next to the hangar- the nose of the unit's C-131D support plane is visible in the left background.
