at NAS Fort Worth JRB/Carswell Field,
Stationed at Carswell 1986-1992 during the last years of the Cold War and the end of the Reagan presidency. The base has lots of history, from the roll-out of all the great Convair and General Dynamics aircraft across the field, to being a movie star in Strategic Air Command with Jimmy Stewart. It was a great assignment, and a wonderful area (even though the summers were just too hot!). Loved watching the sky turn black when the B-52Hs all took-off during the major exercises, followed by all the KC-135s. What a sight to behold! Also loved the impromptu airshows when GD rolled-out a new F-16 for initial flight tests right over the airfield! That always brought everyone out of their offices, and stopped Commissary & BX shoppers in their tracks to watch the performance!
