Mountain home jets
....home and away
Here are some pictures of the 391st jets, both at home at Mountain Home AFB, and during short TDYs. If I can convince Jason to add expert commentary, then the page will be updated - for now, you just get me. Sorry :)
First of all, some of the jets featuring nose art from "Operation Enduring Freedom" in 2001:
And a few more taken on the MH flightline, including a bit of wildlife (and I don't mean the crew chiefs):
Jason went on a TDY to Hill AFB, home of F-16s and Mormons:
But it wasn't ALL hard work:
There was also a TDY to Tyndall AFB for "Combat Archer" - an arduous beach-side TDY that coincided with Spring Break!
"Combat Archer" involves the live firing of weapons - something that doesn't happen at home very often. The crews fire at drones and at F-4 Phantoms that act as various kinds of targets.
The hunter and the hunted!
An arty shot of an F-4 there - not often you see one looking elegant :)
That is a picture of the "Drone Shop" where the MQM-107Ds are recovered and repaired.
Early morning FOD walk :)
And a few assorted shots taken in various locations:
As you can see, night-time burner runs are quite popular ;)
And to end with, the Mountain Home AFB flight line looking at it's best :)
Go back if you want to see anything else :)
