"Side view is of my 2nd check out ride, Oct 57 taken by Capt Roy from mobile.  Second  is poor quality [but best I have] of the entire Sqdn airborne [all 28 assigned!!!] over Castle at the end of a major exercise, lead by Ops Officer, Maj. Martin.  Did a flyby at the CO's debriefing at Hamilton at the exercise end.  I'm right wing in the 1st 4 ship on lead elements right side. 

Not sure of date but between Dec 57 & Mar 58."

Hi:

 
Saw the picture for the first time of the 28 ship F86 formation tonight.  I was there.  One thing he didn't tell you was that we had three T birds and they were all airborne also!!  That totals 31 456th birds in the air at once.  I remember it well.  The last F86 was flying in emergency everything but it was up with the rest.  Thought you might be interested in this tid bit.
