to the unofficial web site for the 85th Fighter Interceptor
Squadron. This site is intended to convey information and a bit
of aviation history. It isn't fancy... that will be left to
better designers than I. So, pitch in... help is welcomed. And I
have only the bit of history that I remember and that was
contributed by others to date... inputs are very welcome.
Why this site? This humble contributor, Donald M Condra's, first assignment after pilot training in 1953 was to the 85th Fighter Interceptor Squadron at Scott AFB, Illinois flying the F-86D. Many fond memories remain to be shared with you. 85th comrades... please contribute and share your memories here !
