I'm in the second row, just to the right of the guy directly behind the TI (as you're looking at the pic).

    Man-o-man, I'm doing the same thing. My photo wasn't there either, so I've been rummaging around and found it. I sent them an email asking about it already....memory lane. I can't believe it was so long ago. I think we were one of the first few flights to enter and not get the greens, we were issued the BDU's. I don't remember the timeframe exactly as to when they made the full blown switch, but I'd go back to those BDU's in lue of the ABU's they have today. The ABU's are...well...in a word, crap. Putting body armor on over them and running around with full kit was no fun. The new multicam isn't bad because they used the Army version and they are very comfortable and user friendly.
    I'll get mine up here once I get it in the computer.
    Jim, thanks for posting this!

    Jim - I did let him know your thoughts. Unfortunately, he passed away this past Monday. Before he passed, I had a chance to show him the photo and he was thrilled to see it.

    If any of you want to join me in a toast this evening to his service and Memory, I'd sure appreciate it. Jack Hinkle, 1929-2019. USAF 1947-1953.

    If you have the original photo you can submit it and they will post it. There is information on that website on how to do that (basically you scan and email). In fact, I submitted my flight photo.

    Man, it's funny but I forgot pretty much every guy in that photo, but then the names start to come back when you see the faces. Then the stories about the guys and their faces.
    Why are there NO FEMALE flights? I was in the AF? looked thru all the Dec 1991 flights and not a single flight w/females.
