  1. I see what you did there.... Mitch Ryder approves !!! 😈 👗
  2. Agree. Aggressor roles usually involve ECM not targeting, I see no value in carrying a Sniper in that role.

  4. No. Never. Absolutely not. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.
  5. Look for books written by Dennis Jenkins. https://www.amazon.com/s?k=Dennis+r+jenkins also the Ginter series does in depth histories, often on lesser covered subjects. http://www.ginterbooks.com/
  6. The logical lexicon is Large Leery. A Large Leery looks a lot like a little leery only a lot larger. Logarithmically Larger. https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/alliteration
  7. Block 30/32 did not originally have the beer cans on the LEFs. They were part of the ALR-56 mod (replacing ALR-69) that rolled out in 1993 and was fitted to the fleet over a period of years. So in ‘92 your jet would not yet have the beer cans, and maybe / maybe not in ‘93 or ‘94 or ???. You will have to check dated photos to confirm. Here is a pic of 85-1455 dated June 1993 and the beer cans do not appear to be present. https://www.jetphotos.com/photo/65242 The AirDoc book on USAFE Vipers covers the 86th during this time period. Pics of 1412, 1456, 1466, 1469, 1474 do not show the -56 antennas. It’s probably safe to say these jets didn’t get modded until they rotated back to the States and went to various ANG / Reserve units. .
  8. Will you be including this part in your upcoming resin set for the AMK kit ?
  9. Yes, verrrrry interesting...
  10. That's 'cuz the dude is always stoned, literally....
  11. I found this same pic in another book (Osprey Air Combat series) with caption “taken at NAS Oceana on 4 April 1982” credit Robert F Dorr.
  12. Besides I think all the F-22 tooling is gone. Given the integration effort of F-35 software I think it would be more prudent to just buy more F-35s rather than try to restart F-22 production and integrate/migrate a new avionics system into it.
  13. Don’t forget the defestrator mod, implemented after Goose hit the canopy when he ejected during a flat spin.
  14. One of the longest running comedy series ever, now in season 209 episode 5217. IIRC it was a spinoff of a popular reality show “Real Tomcats of the US Navy”. That show had a great tagline, “Often Imitated, Never Duplicated”..... .
