Nice Recovery

I was in the USAF 12 Squadron on Okinawa, and flying in an F-105D off the Korean coast on the wing of Tony Shine. Tony was a Captain at the time, I was a lowly Lt. and he was one of my heroes. He had an F-105F model two-seater with a weapons system operator (WSO) in the back. He put me in fighting wing for a mock attack on another F-105, and while closing too fast in a left hand turn decided to try a high “G” roll. As I watched, he loaded up the airplane with aft stick, and then stomped on right rudder. The nose of his F-105 started up and began to swing in a clockwise rotation, and about the time it got to the vertical, the aircraft just stopped flying. I had never seen anything like it, a great big 25 ton Thunderchief just flopping through the air. It began to descend rapidly still out of control and eventually disappeared into an overcast above the waters of the Yellow Sea. As I circled and watched anxiously, eventually Tony’s aircraft appeared again, staggering out of the overcast. I later asked him on the ground what his WSO had said as he climbed above the overcast. Tony claimed all he said was “Nice Recovery”, but I suspect it was phrased somewhat more colorfully than that! When they closed the squadron and the F-105 out of Kadena and sent us all packing, Tony Shine went to Myrtle Beach in the A7, but he was a true Warrior who “ran to the sound of the guns” and ended up back in Thailand where he was lost to us.

Respect & Thanks

Tony Shine soloed me in 1964. I owe him two great careers : 35 years in the AF, and 33 + 4 in the airlines. He was a tough -gentle - giant ! God bless you Tony Shine.
