The latest addition to this website is the F-86E Sabre. I decided to try my luck with a ANG bird, and choose Alaska ANG as my subject, as I found it quite unique, with the dayglo Orange tail section. This aircraft is from the 176th Wing, 144th Fighter Interceptor Squadron, and this is how the aircraft looked when it operated out of Elmendorf AFB in 1958.

Here´s a depiction of the very last F-105F Thunderchief in USAF service. Georgia ANG had taken over the F-105G Wild Weasels from the 35th TFW, and left as the last Wild Weasel squadron to operate the aging Thud. Despite its age (The Thud entered service in 1958), the low level speed was outstanding. Stories from Red Flag in the early 80s tells that the Thud would out pace even F-15s in low level flight. However, on May 25th 1983, Peach 91 (depicted here), made its last flight with Maj. Green as a pilot and MSgt. Nance in the back seat. The flight took the F-105F to Pax River, MD, where it would become target for missile practice.

I´m happy to annonce that the first batch of Voodoos have now been added to the squadron galleries. And not only that, from now on I can produce renditions of all Voodoo variants, so if there´s a specific Voodoo you like to see depicted, make sure to let me know which one. Below is links to the sections where you can find this first batch of Voodoos. I tried to add a bit of diversity here, so there´s renditions of Voodoos from both the USAF, ANG and RCAF. Let me know how you like em ;) Click the thumbnails below to be taken to to the full size renditions
After completing the F-101B Voodoo it was too much of a temptation to try my luck with a flashy ANG paint scheme. A former Crew chief contacted me asking, me to make a renditions of his former jet that served with the 119th FIG of the North Dakota ANG. When working on it, I thought: Why not do a few more, and then the Deuce joined the One-oh-wonder and later a Phantom joined the gang. Here´s the lot of them, and may i say: They do make a pretty cool trio !

The Air National Guard section is now up and running. I decided to separate it from the Fighter and Interceptor section as it was starting to get a bit crowded there. To celebrate this new section i decided to add a new profile: a RF-4C Phantom of the 153rd TRG, 186th TRS as it appeared in 1989.
