Photo Comment

When the 194th Fighter Interceptor Squadron of the California Air National Guard at Fresno was in transition from F-4D to F-16A/B, four F-4Ds of the 179th Fighter Interceptor Squadron of the Minnesota ANG were deployed to Fresno, to temporary relieve the new Falcon squadron with the Quick Reaction Alert (QRA) task. One of the F-4Ds was still in its great original livery. It is seen here armed with live AIM-9 Sidewinders, ready for take-off at any moment.
