  1. Gary, when did you see the 123 go into the mountain? Was it shortly after takeoff from Tan San Nhut?
  2. Yep, good guy to deal with, and he’s got some nice stuff on his list!
  3. Kind of what i’d expect but thought maybe someone had seen info for sure. Thanks
  4. Is there more info on what the 2 in 1 encompasses? 2 complete fuselages or did they split it and give option of single or dual seater front ends?
  5. Just curious but were preloaded MER/TER/BRU’s not a standard USAF practice or was this just F-111 related?
  6. Hi mrvark. Any chance that’s you in the sunglasses in front of the NA bird?
  7. All look good but I do like the Seahawk!
  8. If that's the same ones that did the 48th Treibflugel, then they did a nice job on it. I'd be happy to see them do more in that scale. And while H2 is probably close with his list, I suspect one of the three will be a 'night' version of the Treib (as they with their larger scale version).
  9. Having been on that firstTomcat cruise, engine problems were an issue. We did a line period in the Indian Ocean that was supposed to culminate in a Tomcat demo for the Shah of Iran (to help sell him on buying the plane). Time came for the show and it got cancelled. Before the word came out on the cx, I had been helping one of the F-14 ae troubleshooters find some electrical parts in our spares (I was an A-6 ae ts) and he mentioned we weren’t going to do the show for the Shah because they only had 3 up Tomcats between the two squadrons, mostly because of engine stuff. Toss in all the losses due to engine ‘failures’ that cruise ... hard to say they weren’t really an issue. Cant deny they weren’t fun to watch during flight ops after the F-4s the previous cruise, though.
