Congratulations to <a href="f-16_pilots_num2409.html">Lt. Col. Sam J. Shaneyfelt</a>, Commander 85th TES who passed 3000 Flt hrs on April 24th, 2008.

Lt. Col. Sam J. Shaneyfelt wrote:
The 85th deployed 4 Vipers and 4 Eagles to Hill AFB, Utah from Eglin AFB, Florida on the 18th-25th of April to test & evaluate a NORAD/NORTHCOM urgent need capability. My DO, LtCol Coma Villem is pictured in the first shot. SSgt Fleury (46 AMXS) is in the 2nd.

I was hoping to hit the 3K mark back home at Eglin, but it was fitting it happened at Hill. Exactly six years earlier while stationed at Hill, I'd blown a disc out in my lower back (a not so uncommon injury for Viper Drivers), and was told by several doctors that I'd never fly again.

Evidently the Big Guy Upstairs had different plans.

Next up 4000hours!

Hey! I know those guys! Smooch and Hammer both signed my goin'-away picture when I left in '90. Before he became Hammer, Doug's callsign was "WeeBee", so that whenever he was cleared for anything, he'd comeback, "WeeBee cleared for takeoff", or "WeeBee on the go". :lol:

I think Smooch went on to become the Wing King before they traded in the Viper for the Eagle.

When pilots fly patrols (CAS/CAP) they can go for 9-10 hour missions, and they do this a couple of times a week. Pilot flying hours goes up fast. During the Libyan conflict, at least one EA-18 crew stayed up over 12 hours.

With the recent concerns over North Korea lately, the F-16s are probably flying patrols in the area. This would explain why a Colonel joins the 3000 hour club.
