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 !!!!

04-13-2015 The 85th FIS(Scott AFB 1952-1960). It's time to have one more last get together. Three of us, so far, are planning together at Wright-Patterson AFB some time this year. That would be Jim Vorhies, Robert Smith and Don Condra. Time to be determined by feed back from this email. Let us know if you are interested and what time would be best for you. Sure hoping for many favorable responses so we can "relive", tell stories, etc.
