430th Tactical Fighter Squadron Rhinos


Recommended Posts

F-4Ds with the 430TFS at Nellis AFB at the end of 1980. In a few more months these will all be traded out for F-16s...

66-7753, fresh from the paint barn and waiting for squadron colors - I think this was a transfer from the 428th. The 428th  had already given up their Phantoms and were waiting on Vipers.
