This pictorial history of the USAF Weapons School based at Nellis AFB, Nevada, features over 200 color images of the aircraft flown by the eighteen squadrons of the Weapons School from 1992 to the present. The aircraft photos are organized by Weapons School squadron with a short history of each squadron, as well as unit insignia. A majority of the photographic images were taken by the author during numerous visits to Nellis AFB, and the other bases hosting Weapons School units. Most of the action photos were taken on the Nellis range, the Nellis ramp and runways, or in flight. Also included are chapters on the history of the Weapons School predecessor, the Fighter Weapons School, from 1949 to 1992, with photos of the fighter aircraft assigned to its squadrons. The F-16 and F-15 aircraft of the 57th Adversary Tactics Group (Aggressors) are also included.

Back

After graduating from California State University-Northridge with a BA degree in history, Don Logan joined the USAF in August 1969. He flew as an F-4E Weapon Systems Officer (WSO) flying 133 combat missions over North Vietnam, South Vietnam, and Laos before being shot down over North Vietnam on July 5, 1972. He spent nine months as a POW in Hanoi, North Vietnam. After his return to the US, he was assigned to Nellis AFB where he flew as a right-seater in the F-111A. He left the USAF at the end of February 1977, and in March of that year, went to work for North American Aircraft Division as a flight manual writer on the B-1A program. Following the cancellation of the B-1A, he went to work for Northrop Aircraft as a fire control and ECM systems maintenance manual writer on the F-5 program. In October 1978, he started his employment at Boeing in Wichita, Kansas, as a Flight Manual/Weapon Delivery manual writer on the B-52 program. He retired from Boeing in February 2002. He continues to photograph and write on military aircraft subjects.
