Was all that 7.62 brass reloadable? :mrgreen: That would be my first thought.

"I once got overflown by an inverted F4 when I was on the Mt Whitney summit....back in the early 1980s."

That was a normal procedure. We were practicing trying to use terrain to hide from radar and we would roll inverted over the top of a hill/mountain to keep positive G's on the airplane. A pushover would be negative G's and very uncomfortable. The back seater would be whining like crazy if we did that. It was also lots of fun and being 25 and bullet proof, what could go wrong?? ;-)

Re: Your thoughts

NAS Dallas had both a Navy and Marine F-4 squadron and Carswell had an ANG F-4 squadron. The low level routes were all marked and we would file the route on our flight plan. After take-off, we would sometimes get "dislocated" and go where we wanted to go. You would never shoot unless you were on a range. The falling brass would kill someone if it hit them.
