Hazmat Training GAFB FD 1992 - first Hazmat Rig. 26 Mar 1992 

F-4 Phantom's to Nellis AFB by way of CH-53's

Apr 1992, during the wind down of George AFB (DoD BRAC List) at least 4 F-4 Phantom's are airlifted by CH-53's to Nellis AFB bombing range - a dangerous operation as 4-6 Airmen sit aboard the

F-4's fuselage to connect straps dangling from the CH-53. The 1st F-4, you will notice the nose lifts up...due to the Rotor down wash.
