F-105s were also stationed at Carswell AFB in Fort Worth Texas during this period. I was amazed to see them still in service when I got there. It was like stepping back in time. The base was populated by B-52D models. KC-135 tankers, F-105s, and Cessna T-37 trainers. The Air Force still had some sort of twin engined radial transport flying in once in a while too. This aircraft was made in 1962 I think, judging by it's tail number. People accuse the military of waste, but I think they got their money's worth out of all of the aircraft mentioned.

The quality of this picture is AMAZING considering it's from 1983. It honestly looks like it could have been taken only a few years ago!

Excellent shot, so clear it is difficult to believe it was taken in 1983.
