Andy Smolenski is our presenter for August. Andy’s presentation will cover the last of the F-4s (really, QF- 4s, which is how any drone is identified; a QF-16 would be an F-16 drone) from Holloman AFB in New Mexico in the late 2016/early 2017 time frame. The F-4 Phantom served the U. S. military in the Air Force, Navy and Marines; the last F-4 unit to be retired from service was the squadron from Holloman AFB in New Mexico.

During the last year of QF-4 operation, the unit visited many Air Shows to show off the
last of the F-4 aircraft, as they were all retired from duty at the end of 2016. This presentation will showcase these airshows and the story of the birds’ retirement.
