1950s Firepower Demo Eglin AFB

Recommended Posts

The title on YouTube says 1960s but there's a B-36 dropping a line of bombs, Peacemakers last flew in 1959. Sad to see all the B-29s used as targets.

One of the F-100s is a C model from the 479th Wing, 343th Sqd. out of George AFB. Those were gone by Oct. 1958. Traded in on F-104Cs. And the Black trim was quickly changed to White early on.

And in the winter of 1959/1960 all the fancy squadron markings were gone. Replaced by the TAC Emblem and Lightning bolt.

My guess would be 1957-58 time frame.
