December 1992 with AGM-65 Maverick missile training round. "My" jet... I think I only crewed her once or twice.

John "Starman" Armor was the squadron Deputy for Operations and I was the Deputy for Engineering. The orange gear in the ammo drum bay is part of the MARS magnetic tape recording system for the aircraft instrumentation - all replaced with digital solid-state recorders 15-20 years ago.
