I really like Paul Freeman's Abandoned airfield site. http://www.members.t...eeman/index.htm I recently came across a similar site for airfields in Europe. http://www.forgottenairfields.com/nouveautes.html Some of these were cold war targets when I was at Lakenheath. Here is the old Luftwaffe/DDR fighter field at Zerbst http://www.forgottenairfields.com/germany/saxony-anhalt/anhalt-bitterfeld/zerbst-s384.html You can get an even more detailed picture at Google Earth (Zerbst, Germany). I showed the site to a friend who was an F-4 Weapons System Officer (WSO) with me. He remembers all his targets, radar offset aimpoints and run-in IPs (initial point). One of his radar depictions was remembered as "a monkey screwing a football". The picture below is not an F-4 radar but it's similar to the F-4 ground mapping display. On the run-in from the IP, the WSO would see a combination of blobs that looked like a monkey screwing a football. He'd position his offset cursor on some preplanned part of the monkey's anatomy and the bomb system would steer to the target. :-) Of course, if the weather was good, we would have visual checkpoints.
That's my time-waster for today. Off to the airport to install a new electric trim idea.
