Each squadron aboard USS Midway had an aircraft painted in recognition of the 1976 U.S. Bicentennial. Here is the VF-151 design. This a/c has just been relocated to this spot on the flight deck. The tug is still hooked up, the plane captain is in the cockpit, and a flight deck director (yellow shirt) is signaling the plane captain to hold the brakes. Next the chocks will be put in, the a/c secured with no less than 6 tie down chains, and the tug unhooked. If the sea state is causing a large amount of deck movement up to 18 chains may be required.

This was the personal plane of Mozambican president Samora Machel. On a flight from Mbala in Zambia to Mozambique's capital, Maputo, on 19 October 1986 the aircraft crashed at Mbuzini, in the (then) Transvaal on the border between South Africa and Mozambique. There is a certain level of controversy connected with this event, ranging from pilot error to false VOR signals. The official report concluded that it was a controlled flight into terrain.

The aircraft was painted in this special scheme to celebrate 1976 being the Bicentennial year of the British colonies issuing their Declaration of Independence from Britain. The next year the tanker number was changed to '16' with a simple paint modification.

This VF-161 F-4N has just launched from USS Midway and is topping off with fuel from VA-115 KA-6B Bureau Number 151793 before proceeding on its mission. In the background is RF-4B Bureau Number 153093 of VMPF-3, which has already refueled. I took this slide from a VA-93 A-7A.

This KA-6D is the high tanker and is holding above the USS Midway (CV-41) awaiting some "customers" who need fuel. I took this slide from a VA-93 A-7A "Corsair II" that was in tanker configuration. There were two tankers airborne overhead the ship for every launch and recovery, normally one KA-6D and one A-7. The KA-6D refueling hose was installed permanently under the rear fuselage as seen in the photo. The A-7 was easily configured into a tanker by temporarily mounting a D-704 air refueling store with hose under the left wing, and two fuel tanks under the right wing.
