Operated by the 509th BW based at Pease AFB, NH. 'Milk Wagon' nose art has been applied. The aircraft design and engine thrust enabled operations above 60,000 feet exceeding speeds of Mach 2.5. The terrain following radar was unique in its ability to fly the aircraft over obstacles as low as 200 feet, at speeds of Mach 1.1.

A Growler on the prowl... The crew of VX-9 Vampires out of China Lake was flying very low and fast through the narrow Canyon, a sight and sound I will never forget. This location for viewing military low level flying is comparable to the famous Mach Loop in Wales, however, it is not as busy as there but the chances for some sunshine are much better in California.
