Red Tails coming to Combat Aircraft!

Amazing Alabama ANG F-16 photos from Jim Haseltine

Regular contributor to Combat Aircraft with his incredible imagery — Jim ‘Hazy’ Haseltine has been working with the 187th FW, Alabama ANG, for a lead future in the forthcoming February issue of Combat Aircraft, due on sale from early January.

Combat Aircraft editor Jamie Hunter interviewed several key figures within the unit to support Jim’s amazing images.

In September 2007 the wing’s 160th FS was redesignated as the 100th FS in honor of the famous squadron of the Tuskegee Airmen, with bright red tails applied to at least two of the squadron’s aircraft in recognition of the heritage of the squadron identity.

A full report, which includes details of the unit’s recent combat operations – will appear in the February 2016 edition, currently in works.
