This was taken on the Pease AFB, NH flightline around 1984. I worked Security Forces back then, crossed-trained to Boom Operator in 1985. I only had one opportunity to inflight refuel F-106s and it was at night so I couldn't get any photos. :e8new
Boarding a "Camo 106". Just kidding, it's an RF-4C, taken in 1979 at Duluth. Maybe not as pretty as a "6" but a lot more exciting mission. Wonder how the "6" would have been at low level in the RF environment.
I'm an old munition/weapons guy not an avionics puke!

Nice photo shadowgunner. :thumbsup Sure do miss those green fatigues,,,the perm-press ones anyway.
This pic was during my retirement BBQ. The F-106A behind me is one I used to work on and run on the trim-pad. Visable is the right wing tank of a T-33, and its one I flew in several times. I liked have the ADC birds part of my last day in the USAF.
Well speaking of old pictures of you in a Six, here's mine before colon cancer dropped me 85 pounds in 2004 and added back 45 by 2013. Chemo and radiation is a way to lose weight fast but I sure wouldn't recommend it to anyone so get a colonoscopy if you haven't had one in a few years. Tell'em Pat sent you and you'll get a free colon cleanse.

Diamondback: Wave returned, Mike, though different vintage--my grandfather was a Green Dragon around '65-'70ish including Osan; one of the last out of NATO Chateauroux and a lot of that planeload ended up posted at McChord.
