They filmed this with us starring David Jantzen (The Fugitive) and directed by Jack Webb (Dragnet) Don't tell anyone, but they forgot their missiles. Supposed to have 4 Sparrows on the fuselage stations + 4 Sidewinders on the wings. That bird's flyin nekkid!

Army 82nd Airborne 1978 - 1980
Ever heard of or run into an officer by the name of Thomas Straus? He was with the 82nd at that time. He lived across the street, and his father was one of the 4 Cleveland Police Captains. When I got out (1971), Toms was a Captain with the 82nd at that time. Last I heard he was a Lt Col or full bird + still with 82nd. Very smart, great baseball player, he pitched for the Red Sox, I caught for the Dodgers (little league). His dad made custom grips in the basement for all the patrolmen's .38s at that time.
