The U.S. Marine Corps section is here

The Marine Corps section have finally been launched. With that the VMFA section which features the Marine Fighter Attack squadrons (and all incarnations of those squadrons). This section features F-4 Phantoms, F-8 Crusaders and soon also F4D Skyrays and FJ Furys. I hope you´ll stop by for a closer inspection of this new section on my site. Click the thumbnail below to be taken to the VMF/VMF(AW)/VMFA section F-8E Crusader, VMF(AW)-235 "Death Angels", 1967

Fleet Air Reconnaissance squadrons added

Two new Fleet Air Reconnaissance galleries have been added ! VQ-1 "World Watchers" and VQ-2 "Sandeman" galleries can now be found on the VP/VQ section. Rather than giving the VQ squadron a separate section i decided to add the VQ squadron galleries to the VP section, and rename the section the VP/VQ section. The two galleries galleries contains both EA-3 and EP-3 profiles so make sure to take a look in both if you are either a Whale fan or a Aries fan. The thumbnails below will direct you directly to the VQ galleries.   EA-3B Skywarrior, VQ-1 "World Watchers", 1985 EP-3E Aries, VQ-2 "Sandeman", 1991

Bomber Vigi

A new print was just made available. This is the first print from my hand of a A-5A Vigilante. This one from VAH-7 "Peacemakers of the Fleet" as they appeared while aboard USS Enterprise in 1962. Notice this one is the CAG bird, with the double nuts modex number and the multicolored stars on the rudder. The thumbnail below will direct you to aircraftprofileprints.com from where you can purchase the print. The print is available in three sizes 16x12, 24x16 and 40x16 inches

A Checkered Whale

After adding a VAH/RVAH section I realised that the section was short on Whales, so this markes the start of the process to change that. This is a A-3B Skywarrior of VAH-11 "Checkertails" as it appeared while operating of the deck of USS F.D. Roosevelt (CVA-42) in 1962. Notice these early Whales didn´t have the refueling boom installed yet. Hope you like it ;) Click the thumbnail below to go to the VAH/RVAH gallery: A-3B Skywarrior, VAH-11 "Checkertails", 1962

U.S. Air Forces Fighter and Interceptor section added

It´s about time that the USAF wings gets some attention ! Therefore i have now added the U.S. Air Forces Fighter and Interceptor section. The organisation of this section took quite some time to get right, but I decided to organize the section by Wing. This means that there can be several squadrons in each gallery, but it also mean that entire wing lineages can be followed in a single gallery, no matter if the wing have changed mission somewhere in its period of service. This means, that all the galleries in this section contains wings or groups that, at some point in their service history, was either a Fighter or an interceptor squadron or group. Please drop me a line if you visit this section ;) To be directed to the U.S. Air Forces Fighter and Interceptor section click the thumbnail below F-111F Aardvark, 48th Tactical Fighter Wing, 495th Tactical Fighter Squadron, 1991

A new Red Lightning

Having wanted to do this profile for some years i finally sat myself down and got to work. This is the result: a F-4J Phantom of VF-194 "Red Lightnings" in 1976, when the squadrons aircraft were painted in the characteristic Ferris paint scheme. This paint scheme was´t unique to VF-194 and it was worn by a few other squadrons (at least a few other aircraft from other squadrons), but it really stands out even among the TPS schemes that would be common in the early 80s. Click the thumbnail below to browse the VF-194 gallery: F-4J Phantom, VF-194 "Red Lightnings", 1976

Norman K. McCoy. To see the new VF-51 profiles simply click the thumbnail below, and i´ll be taken to the VF-51 gallery. Enjoy ! F-8H Crusader, VF-51 "Screaming Eagles", 1968

Screaming Eagles pt. 1

After rearranging the galleries i realized that I It would be a good idea to start filling in some blank spots in the galleries. I decided to try my luck with VF-51, og which i already have two profiles done. The Screaming Eafles however, have operated both the Skyway and the Crusader before transitioning to the F-4 Phantom. The famous Supersonic Can-Opener paint scheme, have been done, so i decided to move on to some of the newer paint schemes, before doing the Skyway and the Crusader. This is the result. A F-4N Phantom of VF-51 as their CAG bird looked in 1976. More Screaming Eagles to come very soon ;) To browse the existing VF-51 profiles click the thumbnail below FJ-3M Fury, VF-51 "Screaming Eagles", 1957
