USAF F-4E Phantom II Thunderbird #3
No, I wasn't a Thunderbird, but Renee' and I did see #3 fly 41 years ago. The F-4 Phantom Thunderbirds flew from 1969 to Feb 1974 when they were retired due to the fuel crisis. Blytheville AFB held an open house Oct 25 1972 and the Thunderbirds and the US Army Golden Knights performed. Renee' and I had been married one month, I was a one stripe airman. Thunderbird #3 was placed on display at South Park Monett MO sometime after 8/1/1994.
