Rhinos of the 457th Tac Fighter Squadron, 301st Tac Fighter Wing, Air Force Reserve at Carswell AFB, March 1990. Just a quick visit to the USAF side of the base between meetings at General Dynamics and catching a flight back to Edwards. Not the best lighting, mostly nose on, couldn't quite get the exposure right.

@Corsairfoxfouruncle Dennis,

 

Thanks for the heads-up! Those are pretty Lone Star Rhinos and -0392 is especially sweet! Nice, but they can't hold a candle to our SA-based F-16's when it comes to markings! I even have a decal sheet with the C.O's Viper! Don't mess with Texas! (Can't get used to calling it Joint Base Ft. Worth, as it will always be Carswell AAF to me, as my late farther flew out of it when he was a B-29 navigator in WW2)

BTW @Old Viper Tester Sven, thank you for sharing the TX ANG Rhino photos- sure do  miss seeing and hearing them flying in and out of Kelly back in the day!
