this was a great airplane the Dcc was a great guy. I was back home. The ANG was the biggest circus I ever worked for. Lots of good people.This unit was really messed up. The biggest screwups got the most promotions. I just could not take all the politics. That is one reason I bailed out. This unit has someof the biggest screwups I have ever seen in my military career. But they were a good bunch of people overall. Some of are more important to me than my family

I was the DCC on this jet in 1990 until I made Msgt and became the flight chief of Baker Flight....Hahn AB, Fightin' 10th.

I remember the jet as being a high flyer in the squadron...very dependable and yes, an accurate bomber. This was the last jet I crewed in the AF and probably 2nd favorite. !st favorite was the F-4E I crewed at Ramstein...68-480....another high flyer!
