  1. You know, I miss the SEA camouflage scheme. I grew up on base and I was used to seeing practically everything that flew wearing it. It’s certainly more visually interesting than the current low visibility one, and as a modeller, it’s more fun to paint.

  2. Looks like the third “Nickle” from the end is the bird on display in the air park by the main gate. There is a very nice display of past aircraft, but the F105 and the A7D are my favs. I worked on both of them many years ago in SEA and at DM.
