Darkroom Days

Back during my first tour in Korea, I spent a lot of time on the glide path to Osan Air Base with my Pentax K1000 and in the Rec Center darkroom.

Figured I'd get some enjoyment out of the way-noisy F-4 Phantoms who often disrupted my shift-worker slumber.

My downtown apartment was directly under one of the final approach turns...amazing what squeaks came out of that airframe when the flaps and gear came down.

    That "howl" always reminded my of "Airwolf". I lived under the inner turn pattern in Fort Worth. Luckily, the BUFFs and tankers didn't follow the same pattern.

    Always liked the F-4. I saw a few of them at Tyndall in '02. They had been converted to target drones. Kind of sad to see 'em like that.
