63-7534 (cn 559) I scanned this photo of a colorful McDonnell Douglas F-4C Phantom II, from the 171st Fighter Interceptor Squadron, Selfridge ANG Base, MI, after I snapped it 38-years ago arriving at Wurtsmith AFB, Oscoda, MI in Aug 1982. Aircraft 63-7354, c/n 559, flew with the 171st from 1978 to 1986. This aircraft is on display at the Selfridge Military Air Museum Air Park, Mt. Clemens, MI.

94-0047 (cn 1C-199) I wasn’t able to make it to the London Air Show but I took a road trip up to Selfridge ANG base to try to catch a few shots of the new F-16 Viper Demo Team Venom paint scheme. Not the greatest of vantage points but I managed to get this one departing for Shaw.

63-8039 (cn 18656) Another one from my archives. This was the result of a hydraulic system failure of a USAF Boeing KC-135A Stratotanker during an exercise Elephant Walk on a sunny afternoon at Wurtsmith AFB, MI, in 1982. This was the first KC-135 behind a line of B-52 Stratofortress’s, which took part in the simulated launch. As the aircraft attempted to brake at it approached the B-52, the Pilot realized he had no brakes. His split-second decision to steer the aircraft off of the runway saved many lives. Elephant Walks date back to WWI and were a regular occurrence at SAC bases back in the day. Once all of the fuel, approx. 31,000 gallons, was offloaded, two bulldozers were used to pull the aircraft back on the runway. I believe this aircraft is still in service today.
