I am currently a proud member of the 114FW. The A-7D was our units primary A/C when I joined the unit. I was an ECM tech. for the ALQ-119 pod that was flown on these A/C. There is also an A-7D at the Tea, SD airport just south of Sioux Falls that I believe came from our unit when the A7 was retired. My fondest memory of the A-7 was the version that was modified for the 4450th "Las Vegas ANG" before the F-117 was unveild. These, I believe, were the last squadron of active duty A-7s and were retired from active duty shortly after the stealth fighter became public.

I am currently in the USAF working ECM on B-52s at Barksdale AFB, LA. I am originally from South Dakota. There is also an A-7 on display now at the enterance to the Watertown airport. I'm not sure what model or tail number. I never got a chance to work on the A-7, but loved watching them fly over the house. Very impressive jet. The SD ANG looks great! The planes and the ground are kept up beautifully.

I crewed the A-7D that is on display here (70-0931). Her Lt. wing spare was discovered cracked and she was grounded. I currently crew the F-16D here at the SDANG. We now have an F-16C on static display that we recovered from Cold lake Canada. It was damaged there and unflyable. The F-100 here was flow in and the F-102 was air lifted by a "SkyCrane" all the way from Arizona. I believe it was a 6 week trip. The helo could only make short hops and travel was slow. I have a picture of the F-102 hanging from the SkyCrane. It was a very interesting site!!

I Was the Crew Chief of F-102A s/n 53-1801 at Hahn AB Germany from 1960-63. I have some photos and news articles including the event of 1801 becoming the first F-102 in Europe to attain 1000 hours of flying time. My pilot was Capt. Bruce K. Brown. The last I heard of him he was a M.Gen. Surprising to see the old bird in one piece. Most were converted to target drones at Tyndall AFB and were destroyed.

This web site is great. It could use some updating though. We are now the 114FW. We currently fly the F16C/D. Our telephone number has changed to 1-605-988-7700. I was a crewchief on the F100D, SN 55-3663 during the seventies. When we converted to A7D's I lost track of the old girl. Do you have any way of researching the where abouts of this MDS?

A small number of well maintained classic attack jets, plus the current operational fighter of the 114th, the F-16. There will be an air show in Sioux Falls on August 5, 2000. A perfect time to check it out if you are in the area.
