A fellow Warhawk who was with me during the 1983-1987 timeframe in the 480th TFS at Spangdahlem Air Base, Germany; and who was also a Nav Instructor with me afterwards at Mather AFB, CA; let me know of a few YouTube Warhawk videos that were made during our time in the 480th Tactical Fighter Squadron – “The Great Warhawk Nation.”
The last video is a spoof of Navigator Training he made in the 1986/7 timeframe while we were both instructors at Mather AFB.
The blue link will take you directly to Zimo’s Great Warhawk Nation movie trailer for the Warhawk movie he’s creating.
For the YouTube videos – just copy the red links and paste them into a Google search window and you’re ready to experience what life was like in “The Great Warhawk Nation” back in the early 1980’s:
