    Rick,
    Thanks for the photos!! Great job!

    I've noticed a crease in the top of Dreadnaught's vertical stab in a couple different pictures now. I never noticed it before, is that supposed to be there?

    Great pics Rick, thanks for putting them up. One question, where the heck did the Phantom come from? I thought they were completely out of service with the US. Looks nice and clean wherever it came from.

    Where is that F4 out of? I thought all of them had been retired from service.

    Race5,
    Looking at the picture above, it looks like the F-4 is out of Hollowman AFB. I thought all the F-4's were retired also, but apparently not. If you'll notice, this one's not even an RF. Interesting!

    I believe there may still be a few QF-4s in service, but this is not one of them. The F-4s out of Holloman are actually Not USAF, but German aircraft painted in US markings. I asked one of the F-4 pilots at an airshow once, and he said that they were painted in USAF markings for "legal reasons".

    Ooops, may have to change the file names....

    Great pics, Peas. I did not get to see the fast guys run when I was at the valley. By the way time to clean your sensor, I see a dreaded dust blob.

    Will do. We've known it's been there since Middlesboro, but couldn't find it. The sensor, eh? Thanks!
