I was in the 5th Bomb Wing FMS in 1974-75. "***** Thirty-Four" is an old friend. It's good to see her back in the fight.

It looked a lot better when we dropped it off. I'm not sure what is going on here. They made Q-F4 drones out of a number of these.

Here's what it looked like in happier times:

Younger son has a home in Tucson not far from Davis Monthan- the road off I-10 runs right through the boneyard...very cool to see.
My first house I owned was in an old part of East end Dayton back in the 70ís And was right in the flight path for the SAC B-52ís! It was awesome to see those giants making approaches and taking off one after another! They may be old but they are still awesome planes! There was a lot of stuff going on back in the day at WPAFB and still is!!
