Of course Nellis is always a good place to go and also this time. There were a lot of visitors (like E3, E6, E8, EC130, RC135, RC12, B1B, CH53E) and
Nellis was the temporary base for the 27th Wing out of Cannon AFB New
Mexico. I also saw four A10A's from 355FS/AK, 9 F15C's and 6 F15E's from
Mountain Home and four AH1W's plus an UH1N from HMLA369. Not bad for one
Luke AFB in Arizona is the homebase for 9 squadrons of F16's! 135 were seen
that day on the ramp. Special interest for me were the Taiwaneese and
After visiting Tucson ANGB and the Pima museum I drove past Davis Monthan.
Six T37's were visiting on this Saterday. Other interesting airframes were
two F105 Thunderchiefs and the rows of (ex?) Pakistani F16's in storage for
a long time now at AMARC.
Just before flying home from Phoenix Sky Harbor I drove past the ANG
facility. Four KC135E's were seen on the ramp.
