SEYMOUR JOHNSON F4s

Can any one identify a group of F4s (x8?) which passed through Lossiemouth heading to USA, perhaps late 80s early 90s. MTIA

Howdo, DJS. I think you need to repeat this request under the 'Old Serial Tie-up' section. Sorry I can't help.

The only SJ's I ever saw in the UK were at the Alconbury Openhouse on 24-Sept-83 were 74-0621/SJ y, 74-0646/SJ y, 74-1047/SJ y, 74-1649/SJ y. They were part of a Group of 24 SJ's deployed as part of Crested Cap to Ramstein from 5th Sept - 3 Oct. http://www.sharpshooter-maj.com/html/deploy83.htm .

12 SJ's deployed to Wittmundhaven between 1st and 29th July 1985 http://www.sharpshooter-maj.com/html/deploy85.htm

12 SJ's deployed to Karup between 29th April and 21st May 1987 http://www.sharpshooter-maj.com/html/deploy87.htm

12 SJ's deployed to Karup between 31st May and 28th June 1989 http://www.sharpshooter-maj.com/html/deploy89.htm

SJ was the first frontline TAC unit to convert to F-15E, and this occured between 1989 and 1991, so the June 89 one is probably the latest it could have been.

So if you can narrow down the dates a bit then perhaps they can be ID'ed.

DJS,
I checked BARG for 1987-89 and can only find a single occasion when SJ F-4s visited Lossie and that was on 9/5/87 when the following visited - 72-1489, 73-1164, 73-1185 & 73-1195, all blue fin-tipped. They were 4 of 12 that deployed to Karup, Denmark from 29/4-21/5/87 so the visit to Lossie doesn't appear to be connected to their return stateside.

Hi there DJS thought this site could be some help to you in looking for info on those SJ F4s. (TWTD # 04 Coronets,Crested Caps & Salty Bees). USAF Deployments from 1970 on.

Thanks Ian, all four were also noted at Leuchars on the day before.

With thanks to a couple of Scotavnet members after I asked for info on their visit. :thumb:
