One of the best group of guys to work with, Bflt swing shift with Dave McPhereson (sp) as the flt chief. Of course who could forget Chef Diaz and the fact we couldnt keep a flagship.

I went to Hill AFB with the pilot to recieve this aircraft from the 388th, and flew back to Luke in the back seat. Then in 1985 when the 312th FS opened at Luke I was assigned there and recieved an other brand new aircraft from the factory Tail #83-1179.
