    Default Pic req: Cold War F4E intercepts off Alaska

    I am building a website for the Elmendorf Amateur Radio Society and find I don;t have a F-4 and TU-95 intercept pic by an Alaskan F4.

    F15 and F22 sure those were easy. But the venerable Phantom II is MIA.

    If you have pictures of any TU-95 Intercepts by Alaska F-4's please let me know!

    I am retired AF enlisted and a Disabled Vet. I worked in the Alerts Cells launching some of these intercepts from both King Salmon and Galena AFS.

    As one of the few military recreation amateur stations still operating on a military base I strive to ensure we only post accurate information on our website.

    Interested in Ham Radio or just curious about Elmendorf AFB? Stop by http://kl7air.us sometime.

    Have you tried contacting the base historian's office?

    The last one looks like it might have an NF tail code too.

    Not quite, as he's looking for Alaskan intercepts, and that one was done from Iceland.

    Alaskan F-4E intercepting a Bear is really MIA. Couldn't find any better. Another Badger intercept by an Alaskan F-4E, by default.

    maybe if he scrub through the "intercept" thread of this forum, he might get what he was looking for.
