It's funny that this is the third time this picture has come up. It originally inspired the thread and I used wordplay to describe the Red Top launch for the title. :)

Sorry MadRat but, for an unknown reason, I can't see all your pictures on my computer.
But the fact that I've missed the mrmalya one, just a page back, is probably due to a lack of sleep duration. :sleeping:
For my penance, just an other one :

Great pic of the QF-4...I had forgotten they used a modified Kh-31 for parts of their missions. Seems weird, but I suppose if the weapon fits the need then why not?

In response here is a QF-4G launching one of the early test rounds for the AGM-88E AARGM. Convenient coincidence that it's a G-model I think...if it was still in service maybe it would be using this weapon now? :)
