No. Unfortunately I was in a RTU, squadron who trained USAF coneheads how to fly the Phantom so most of my time was in the trunk as an IP(Instructor Pilot)..not operational. When I first got my orders, to 61st TFS(Tactical Fighter Squadron)..thought it was operational but not so fast. Also in the lowly 'D' model as all the 'E' models were sent to Egypt..(1978)..But still great jet. Very reliable, easy to fly.
