388TFW, Hill AFB, UT. After three years there I cross trained out of aircraft mechanics in 1982 into radio maintenance, an attempt to get out of TAC which didn't work. Separated from USAF in 1990.
Bright Star '82. Cairo Egypt. I was on the advanced support team, we were sent ahead to meet the aircraft, 4 A and 4 B models, to Langley, VA where they parked over night before the hop across the pond, while the rest of the support group made their trip to Cairo to prepare for the A/Cs arrival.
After the initial 2 weeks the A models went home. The B models remained under classified orders. During that time there were not enough pilots to fly 4 sorties a day, so they were giving incentive flights, they had to have a body in the back seat. Just days before my return stateside I was given a ride in my A/C.
That was the one and only deployment made during my time with the F16.
