High Roller Phantoms

This video surfaced on another website, and I thought I'd share it here. Some outstanding coverage of Nevada ANG, 192RS 152RW, RF-4C Phantoms. Definitely not USAF approved maneuvers!

This video was shot in 1995 shortly before the unit retired these aircraft and converted to the C-130. The 'High Rollers' set several time to climb and speed records with the jets before they were retired, records which, I believe, still stand.

I visited the unit around that time. The folks there were great, and pretty much turned me and Bill loose on the ramp to photograph whatever we wished. Some good memories - I sure miss the old Phantom!

Pictures by yours truly, at Reno on July12, 1995.
