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!

Wonder if they planned for Berghoff to set his record in Shaneyfelt's jet?

Another photo from the archives.

Majors Johnny Adkisson and Doug Dean recently added their names to a very select group of pilots who have flown 3,000 hours in the F-16 Falcon. Both pilots reached this milestone together during a recent training flight from Kingsley Field. Photo taken March 15, 1996. [USAF photo by MSgt Stine]

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.

Slightly :offtopic: but related: Has anyone gotten a shot of Brillo's 5K patch yet?
