I was assigned to this jet at Homestead AFB, Fl. as it came brand spankin new from GD. The 307th was stood up in 91 and consisted of new people, people from both the 308th and 309th FS's and from bases in Europe that we were closing (TJ, Hahn, Spangdahlem etc) This unit was a great one to be a part of. I had a good time here. The standard stateside "TAC" crap applied though.
Had the worst paint job on any jet I crewed. Paint barn must have left the doors open that day they sprayed it. It was as rough as sandpaper. Last assignment in AF. Left under the SSB program when the AF gutted the mid-career guys. Don't bend wrenches anymore, but I'm a civilian pilot and get paid to do it. Can't ask for more.
