F-4 pilot, MiG-21 destroyer visits Holloman, tells story
Col. (Ret.) Joe Latham, previously an F-4 Phantom pilot from Holloman Air Force Base, N.M., poses for a picture Sept. 13, 2016, at Heritage Park, Holloman AFB, next to an F-4 adorned with his name. Latham shot down a MiG-21 35 miles north of Hanoi, Vietnam on Nov. 5, 1966. Latham’s visit was part of Holloman’s annual Phantom Society Tour where 160 aircraft enthusiasts, including veterans and non-veterans with aviation backgrounds, visit various base locations. The tour included an F-16 Fighting Falcon briefing and static display, travel to Holloman’s High Speed Test Track, the opportunity to view QF-4s and F-16s in flight, and a visit to Heritage Park to view displays of various aircraft historically stationed at Holloman AFB.
