Pic Of The Day

Nice shot of an F-15C alert bird from the 32nd TFG, Soesterberg AB, Netherlands taken sometime in the late 80’s. I was there then and Zulu Alert would scramble almost daily on practice missions and a few times a week on actual intercepts. There was some great shots in the Zulu barn of TU-95’s that had been intercepted out in the gap.
This was back before we were completely PC and we still had happy hour at the NCO club on Fridays. Nothing like fresh cold native Heineken on a sunny summer day.
