The 390th Electronic Combat Squadron (ECS) was based at Mountain Home AFB (ID) as part of the 366th Tactical Fighter Wing (TFW). Twelve of Ravens of the squadron, of which this 033, were deployed in Desert Storm in August 1990. The squadron made history when an EF-111A scored an unofficial kill on the first night of the war when they maneuvered a pursuing Iraqi Mirage F1EQ into the ground. This 033 was delivered to Upper Heyford on 7 May 1984 and was one of the six EF-111As which took part in Operation El Dorado Canyon attack on Libya.

The Pacific Missile Test Center was in 1991 the owner of this very early F/A-18. The 25th built Horne, and the eight B-version, made a very welcome touch-and-go at Nellis (CA) during a Green Flag exercise. Strikingly, this 1980 Hornet is still (July 2019) operational. It flies with Air Test and Evaluation Squadron (VX) 23 Salty Dogs from NAS Patuxent River (MD). One of the reasons this very old Hornet is still flying is that it was extremely well maintained at a Flight Test aircraft but also because it was less stressed by carrier landings, deployments, air-to-air dogfights and so on.

A rare Phantom, assigned to the 4485th Test Squadron of the USAF Air Warfare Center at Eglin AFB (FL). The 4485th operated several Phantom types at that time, F-4Ds, F-4Es, RF-4C and F-4Gs. The latter and so the one on the picture belonged to 4485th TS/Det.5, which was based at George AFB (CA). These birds initially carried the 35th TFW code of 'WW' before switching to 'OT'. During the switch, the birds received a gray checkered pattern on the fin cap, representing a toned-down version of the black and white checkers.

Det.5 Phantoms were rarely seen, so I was happy to photograph a few during a Green Flag exercise at Nellis. Unfortunately, the light was on the wrong during photography (or the Phantom took the wrong runway at Nellis?). Anyway, as the bird was rare, I still enjoy to have seen it (although the picture quality is not the best).

During a Green Flag at Nellis, this nice F-4G that was seen, normally based at nearby George AFB (CA). This bird was built as F-4E in 1969, delivered to the USAF in March 1970 (to Torrejon air base in Spain), swapped to several other squadrons before it was rebuilt to F-4G in August 1978. Then it flew as a Wild Weasel from George and Boise (ID), before placed in storage at Davis Monthan. Then 0243 was converted to QF-4G in April 1997 and assigned to the 82d Aerial Targets Squadron at Tyndall were it was eventually shot down (unmanned) as an aerial target on 13 February 2008.

In 1972, Captain Steve Ritchie shot down 5 Mig 21s to become the only USAF pilot ace of the Vietnam War. Ritchie fittingly flew this F-4E, specially painted in Vietnam era markings, at the USAF 50th anniversary Airshow at Nellis AFB in April 1997. This Phantom was one of two painted for this occasion as Steve Ritchie's Vietnam Mig Killer, which actually was 66-7463 for three kills and has been withdrawn from service long before.

Crashed with the death of the pilot/owner James Wright on August 4, 2003 in Wyoming. The probable cause of the accident was the in-flight loss of a propeller counterweight, followed by the pilots loss of aircraft control during a forced landing attempt and subsequent inadvertent stall/spin to the ground.
