F-89D Cold War Intercept Fighter firing air-to-air rockets
Over a two and a half year period Fritz
flew the F-89D model Cold War Intercept Fighter shown above and the 'H'
model which carried 42 of the 'Mighty Mouse' rockets and 6 of the much
larger radar-guided 'Falcon' missiles.
the latter part of this period Fritz flew the F-89J which carried 4 of
the heat-seeking version of the Falcon missile plus 2 of the huge
'Genie' nuclear rockets.
Genies were so effective that the Falcons were eventually removed and
the F-89 finished it's 17 year tour of duty as our main line of defense
with just 2 Genies.
After his active service Fritz flew fixed wing aircraft and helicopters for 9 years in the Minnesota National Guard.
also continued flying as a civilian including the C-172, Beech Bonanza,
Beech Queen Air, and the aerobatic Champion Decathlon.
Fritz reports that he's logged over 9,000 landings (and take-offs presumably!) not counting a few big bounces!
sure to be an interesting presentation by our friend Mr. Fritz Busch! Come
join us at the museum at 7pm , Oct. 13!
