Voodoo and Super Sabres over Alaska

In some of the more recent AP Archive dumps, I found this little gem: a ~2-minute original color (soundless) video from Exercise Ember Dawn III in Alaska.

Captured in September 1971, it shows a lot of aircraft that were dated even for that period and only had a few years left on inventory: Air National Guard F-100D Super Sabres, RF-101 Voodoo photo recon birds, and C-124 Globemaster transports, the latter disgorging O-2 Birddog FAC planes from their nose. For a cap, you even see a full-color Army UH-1 liaison Huey.

Too cool.
