Visited George AFB in March and May 1990. The 20th Tactical Fighter Training Squadron, the "Silver Lobos", of the 35th Tac Fighter Wing was the F-4 training squadron for the West German Luftwaffe. The 75 series F-4Es shown here were built for the Luftwaffe as replacement training jets for F-4Fs that were sent back to Germany 66-0292 66-0328 66-0334 66-0359 67-0319 67-0331 68-0400 69-7585 75-0628 75-0629 75-0630 75-0631 75-0632 75-0633 75-0635 75-0636 Thanks for looking, Sven
F-86Fs of the 435th Fighter-Day Squadron, 479th Fighter-Day Group at George AFB. Watched a terrible sci-fi movie on Youtube last night, "Gog", an Ivan Tors production released in June 1954. The highlight was a scramble sequence circa early 1954. Really like the yellow jeeps for the crew chiefs. Couldn't resist taking these screen grabs... Hope these help someone, Sven

Tactical Air Warfare Center Detachment 5 was stationed at George AFB operating three F-4G Wild Weasels alongside the 37th Tactical Fighter Wing and, later, the 35th TFW. The Det 5 mission was operational testing and tactics development for the Wild Weasels. S/n 69-7235, the test team flagship, 1992 Note the pod in the right forward missile well. In 1990 with shading on the tail characters and a 'deep' ALQ-131 in the left forward missile well. S/n 69-7206, 1992 In 1990, here with the AGM-88 carriage adapter and the pod under the intake appears to be grey and black rather than white and black 69-0277, 1992, without tail codes No clue what that fixture is in the rear cockpit, it covers the area behind the seat and extends forward to the front canopy frame Two days later and the fixture in the rear cockpit is gone In 1990, with tail codes Checkers on the fin tip fairing Det 5 emblem on left intake TAWC shield on the right intake and the pod. This one has the Set 5 Weasel on it instead of the checkerboard The Det 5 weasel Another pod. To my eyes this one does not look as blunt as the one with the weasel motif. The pod nose one showing the slant of the pylon and off-set of the carriage assembly allowing clearance from the nose gear door. I'm guessing the forward fairing houses the umbilicals. AGM-88 training round Thanks for looking Sven
