I crewed another jet as a Block 50 in the 480 TFS for a short period, but I do not recall the tail number (bad on me)

I started this tour crewing F-4E 74-1622. This was my fourth brand new aircraft from the factory. My assistant crew chief was A1C Christine Stone. I finished this tour in the Quality Assurance Section inspecting both F-4G and F-16C/D aircraft.
