Riders bid farewell to the Tacos

-A A +A
By Special to the Monitor

Carl Maier of White Rock and Karen Humphrey of Los Alamos were among the Gold Wing Road Riders Association Chapter F invited to the recent New Mexico Air National Guard’s 150th Fighter Wing’s Heritage Day at Kirtland Air Force Base.  
Chapter members provided a motorcycle for this final family event sponsored by the squadron, to bid farewell to the remaining F16s and the Air Guard who fly them. Members of Chapters F and W displayed their bikes and promoted motorcycle safety and riding gear.   
The day was a tribute to the last two F-16 Fighting Falcons of the New Mexico Air National Guard’s famed 150th Fighter Wing — known since its days in Vietnam as the “Tacos” — that left Kirtland Air Force Base for the last time last Sunday, taking with them 63 years of fighter history.  
All participants  were given the opportunity to have their bike photographed in front of an F-16.
Chapter F made an impression on the squadron’s leadership last December when the Chapter made its first “Wing to Wing” Charity Run to aid the Guard members and their families.
