FIrst we have three F-16Cs, all from the 23rd Wing with their shark mouth noses as is appropriate of the decendents of the Flying Tigers. One is the wing commander’s plane with the multi-colored tail band. The other two are from the 74 FS with one being the squadron commander’s plane and the other a standard line bird. These are all from 1994.

An A-1H from the 602nd SOS in June 1970 is next. This one is names Bubblesn Bust and has an SEA camouflage scheme with a black underside.

Moving to October 2014 is an F-18F from the current holder of the Jolly Roger, VFA-103. This one has a black tail and some color as the squadron commander’s plane.

An A-4M from VF-126 in August 1992 is next. The caption says it is from NAS Fallon, but I photographed this plane in December 1992 at NAS Miramar along with the rest of the squadron.  It must have been on detached duty when the info photos were taken as the unit stayed at Miramar until disestablished in April 1994. It is in the last scheme worn by most of the squadron’s Skyhawks which is blues and greys. A photo of this plane is below. Note that most of the time, these planes carried nothing under the wings or fuselage.

Moving back to 1970, we have an SD coded F-100F when with the 306th TFS at Tuy Hoa in South Vietnam. This in in standard SEA camo and is not a wild weasel, but the squadron hack.

Finally an ES-3A from VQ-5 at NAS Atsugi in January 1999. It has a lot of black along the spine, forward tail and forward wing. Full upper camo views are provided for this and other aircraft on the sheet that require it.
