Luftwaffe F-4Fs DACT at Decimomannu, Sardinia

Some interesting footage of Luftwaffe DACT training at Decimomannu Air Base on the Italian island of Sardinia in 1976.

Some things of note in my mind. What was the designation/name of the dart shaped towed target on the wing of one of the jets on the flightline? Damn, those J79s are some pretty bad smokers 🙂 Looks like the beginning of the end of the camo’d Rhinos in the Luftwaffe. There are a few of the TPS schemed Rhinos in parts 1 and 2.

The narration is in German so I have no idea what they’re saying. I think it get the gist though.


Part 2:

Hopefully the Phantom people out there will like this 🙂

Highly Unusual

The Navy has pulled an admiral from the command seat.

Verrry interesting, but no relevant info beyond the words “inappropriate leadership judgement.” One wonders about how such an event develops, and who it is that looks at the information available and decides it is time for a change of command temporary reassignment at this level.
Any of our august group have more for us to digest? Maybe it’s just about the strawberries…
