My Jets & Assignments

84311 [Detailed history of this F-16]
Unit 62nd Fighter Squadron "Spikes" [Unit History]
Period 1994 - 1995
Current: 84311  USAF 309 FS F-16C Block 25 [w/o]
This was the first F-16 that I got to see my name on, makes for special memories. Howie Cheatham was my DCC; a very patient teacher.
84281 [Detailed history of this F-16]
Unit 62nd Fighter Squadron "Spikes" [Unit History]
Period 1995 - 1996
Current:   F-16C Block 25 [i/a]
My second jet as an ADCC. It's the first F-16 I saw with chromed parts, I guess this is where the addiction started. Rudy Ramirez was my DCC; I don't think I ever saw him without that trademark grin!
83164 [Detailed history of this F-16]
Unit 62nd Fighter Squadron "Spikes" [Unit History]
Period -
Current: 83164  USAF 62 FS F-16C Block 25 [w/o]
My third and final active duty jet, and of all three, my favorite. This bird was the first F-16 to break 4,000 flying hours, which is really cool. The true honor goes to Ron Turner, my DCC and still a good friend.
86262 [Detailed history of this F-16]
Unit 162nd Fighter Squadron "Sabers" [Unit History]
Period 2004 -
Current: 86262  USAF 182 FS F-16C Block 30 [act]
This is the first bird I've been DCC on. She's got a lot of history; the first block 30 big-mouth and a Mig-23 kill. I've spent a lot of time with this jet, both on and off the clock. I took all the panels that are open for a preflight insp. off and polished/painted them. I also polished all the probes, intake lights, JFS door, hubcaps, and landing/taxi light rings. We attend several airshows every year, so if you see us, stop and say hello.
