Wow, Flying an F-101 is something and deserves for the aviator to be called the Count for sure. It is such an awesome missile fighter, this Voodoo.

The alar fin flash appear to be 62nd FIS, but I can’t be sure – would love to see a closer scan of the tail for insignia and serial number. Maybe “The Count” can cut to the chase and state the information?

Repeat of tail flash under cockpit tells me this is probably from the 13th FIS stationed at Glasgow AFB Montana in late 50’s early 60’s. Google 13th FIS and you will find some color pics on a reunion site.

I had to do a double take when I ran across this photograph. My dad has the exact photograph of himself kneeling in front of this F-101 Backdrop. It is definitely the 13th FIS, Glasgow, MT. My dad was stationed there in 1963-1967 as a Radar officer in the Voodoo. His name was Connie Hostetler, was a Captain at the time as well. Eventually went on as a WSO in the F-4D & E and retired as a full Col with 26 years of service (in 1984). This was an interesting find.
