TGIF, Rob….thanks. 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Almost forgot to ask….anyone got any idea what type of aircraft that is about to crash and burn in that open field (I do see a parachute, though).

I can’t recall if this was an image from Korea or ‘Nam.

Think it’s from Viet Nam. American warplane shot down, type unknown.
That’s an F-15E Mudhen turning and burning at low level. Impressive! The onlookers have considerable intestinal fortitude.
Where did that chessecake poster come from? Looks like cyrillic, but…
Got some pretty definitive info on that “other forum” that it is indeed an F-105 shoot-down in Vietnam.

Yeah, I also found also that comment, which I strongly disapprove…
To me it looks like A-3 Skywarrior rather than F-105… The tail is completely different and wings are much larger with different angle.. I can also recognize engine under the wing.
Maybe I am wrong, because it is very tricky position…
another possibility – RB-66

Many great images that invite deeper reflection.
A bit of personal discovery – so THAT’s what the foldable fin on the Viggen was for! Let’s get this baby off the ground then 🙂

Nice picture, as usual. The Viggen in the cave shelter is already a project, in my mind, for the special Hoby in 1/48. Fantastic the F-15 flying below the hill top. Not sure, but the falling aircraft could be F-105 in Vietnam.
Glad it strikes a chord. I think several of these images give pause for project consideration, the HAS (Hardened Aircraft Shelter) image being a case in point.

I like the helmet in the tree, The Harrier heat photo is interesting.
Yes, don’t think I’ve ever seen an infrared photo of a jet in this context.

Love the pics as usual,I think the low flying F15 shot was taken in Wales,I saw a TV interview with Harry Patch ,the last of the Tommies I remember him saying “any man who said he wasn’t scared in the trenches is a damn liar”.

What a treasure trove Rob. Thanks so much!

OMG that 55+ recruiting poster is RIOT. Wish the USAF would do something like that….
