I used to work on them when I was stationed in Alaska during the mid 80's.

In fact, I even got to fly one from the back seat once when I had to do some emergency maintenance on some Cold War Alert F-15's at Galena and King Salmon Alaska.

They were a very dependable Korean War vintage (read: early 50's!) jet...I learned a lot working on them.
