Photos by Bernie McKenna
Taken at various times around 1985 and 1987, this set shows the Dutch Leopard 2 when it was at its original best. All of the photos were taken at Soesterberg when Bernie was twice stationed there with an F-15 squadron.
"We got to go to the tank unit which was basically at the end of the runway. They liked looking at our F-15s, so we got to ride in their Leopards. Plus all the open houses and by sitting at the model club table at the shows, we never missed a chance."
