    Just working on some ERAU classwork & took a break, checking back into some 50TFW history. Having spent nearly 7 years (Nov 84 - Sep 91) at Hahn AB as an air traffic controller, I cleared the last 3 F-16's for takeoff as they were being transferred to the Kansas ANG.

    I remember 84-1250 quite well. The "Commander's Jet", it always took first place honors at the EOR, and the Supervisors of Flying (SOFs) were always on edge in the air traffic control tower as it flew. Man, such a sentimental moment...

    Thanks for the flashback!

    Was the 84-1250 ever equipped with the AGM-88-HARM missile?
