What a history the 78th TFS has, established at Waco (TX) in 1917 operating the JN-4/-6 Jenny, followed by S-4 (from '18), P-12 ('32), P-26 Peashooter ('40), P-36 Hawk ('40), P-40 Warhawk ('41), P-39 Aircobra ('42), P-47 Thunderbolt ('44) and P-51 Mustang ('44) before starting flying jets the F-86 Sabre ('52), F-84 Thunderjet ('54), F-101 Voodoo ('58), F-4 Phantom II ('65) and these A-10A Thunderbolt II ('79). In the final years of ops out of Woodbridge, the 78th flew the F-16 Fighting Falcon (1994). It converted to MQ-1 Predator (2006) and now flies MQ-9 Reapers out of Creech AFB (NV)

The once unarmed recce mission continues to be so attractive (to me). Intell directs recce bird FIRST IN for exact targeting purposes, bird take pictures of target(s), bird return to base, ground crew develops the wet film, commanders assess target, necessary data transferred to the bombers squadrons, recce bird take-off again - following the wave of bombers - to execute the battle damage assessment mission, so LAST OUT! The PR9 of the Royal Air Force had that great mission. This Canberra PR9 was assigned to No,1 Photographic Reconnaissance Unit, operating out of RAF Wyton.
