Navy F-4 Phantoms
The flight-line at Misawa Air Force base was always busy, often with F-4 pilots practicing touch and go runs. It was a busy and noisy place. The end of this hanger reminded all who saw it that the noise was essential.
I can't remember the specific squadron of the planes pictured above, but each squadron had a distinctive tail design. On the back of the photos, I did write that these planes were from the USS Midway. The squadrons rotated in and out of Misawa AFB frequently.
The world has changed considerably since the late 70s. I doubt anyone other than authorized personnel would be allowed in this area to take random photos anymore; however, the sound of freedom is still heard thanks to the crews who are in the air and on the ground. I am grateful for their service.
