Post subject: 4th ID aircraft


These are from the 4th ID museum here at Ft Hood. Not being "Cav", they don't have the array of aircraft but still nice to see. There is an A-10 here on post over by the USAF building that I hope to photograph soon. There is also a Cobra and a Kiowa over on west Hood as well as a Cobra in the town square of Killeen. You'll see them as soon as I can get to them.

Jeff,
That AH-1G is very interesting. It has the "toilet bowl" exhaust extension (usually combined with the Strela anti-SAM SA-7 suppresion kit (extra scoops at engine inlet) and seems to have been fitted with FLIR, probably post-war.

We should check the numbers on that bird, 'specially since it's reportedly ex-11th Cav.

Jeff,
If you would, check that nose assembly for any designations like "AN/AAQ-5". If that is one, it's the only picture I've seen of an AH-1 with that system mounted. I know they were built, but can't find any pics.
