A quick assortment of pics I got during my time out there. Hover the mouse over the centre of the image and click the light bulb to get a new page with the full picture displayed.

Apologies for some of the pics being from behind glass, certain areas us civilians weren’t allowed outside the transport. Thanks to the guys at of the 309th Maint&Regen unit for the backstage pass to see the nukes!

You may use these images as long as you credit me and this URL when you do so.

  2. Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really
    make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your theme.
    Many thanks

  3. An interesting discussion is worth comment.
    I think that you should write more about this subject matter, it might not
    be a taboo subject but generally folks don’t discuss
    these topics. To the next! Best wishes!!

    That picture shows a A4, does it not? It looks like it was part of a training squadron where it played the role of a “bad guy!, bogey, or whatever the pilots call them. In that case, the ennemy was apparently CHINA!

    A4 were often taken to imitate the Mig-21, am I mistaken?

    N94ONS is a Superguppy. Based on the Boeing C97 Cargomaster, originally derived from the B29 Superfortress of WW2. The Superguppy conversions were most often employed by NASA during and subsequent to the Apollo era, and did not cease flying until the mid 1980′s early 1990′s.

    McDonnell Douglass TA4K. in Aggressor Squadron “Soviet” markings as employed at “Top Gun” Naval Air to Air Combat School, NAS Miramar.
    Aggressor Squadron flew as simulated Russian aircraft and pilots, quite literally a Soviet Airforce Unit as close to genuine as could be achieved, operating on US soil.
