The course which I offer consists of: (1) design the landscape in your mind including type of landscape-desert, mesa, tundra, forest, swamp, etc., , trees, bushes, dirt-color, sand, color of sky, w/or without clouds, path, grasses, water with frog lillies, pond life, etc., a hill, a stream, a river, a pond with dead fall tree branch in it, a waterfall if'n you'd like. Once the landscape is designed in your mind (and you do this only once), spend one-half hour here each day. Keep a Journal.
(2) Choose ten projects to build in your mind with as much detail as possible per project. Study each project well, then assemble with memorized precision. Complete 1st project, then go on to 2nd project, on up through each until all ten are completed. Then go back to project #1 and compare detail-for-detail until you have it as close as possible as the actual item; move on to the 2nd item, and on up through all ten. When you've completed all ten let me know and, we'll go on from there.

McDonnell RF-4C Phantom II great bio on the McDonnell Douglas RF-4C Phantom II. The RF-4C (Model 98DF) was the unarmed photographic reconnaissance version of the USAF's F-4C.

Col (ret) Robert Athan, 155th Tactical Reconnasaince Group, Nebraska Air National Guard, Lincoln, NE. Graduate of the FWIC at Boise, ID in December 1987 with Brad Norton. Commander was Col Jim Davies and FWIC instructors were Bill (B.C.) Crum, Chuck Lax, Sal, and Sherm. Good times and one hell of a course.




Graduates of the Weapons Instructor Course (WIC) teach instructors in all phases of the RF-4 fighter weapons system. The graduate functions as the weapons officer in an operational unit. The WIC graduate possesses communication skills and effective instructional techniques in the academic and flight areas of the RF-4 weapons system. The course is restricted to pilots and Weapons System Officers (WSO) who have an minimum of 300 hours in RF-4; are instructor pilots or instructor WSO; are current mission-ready crew members, ready training unit instructor pilots, or instructor WSO's; are qualified in very low altitude training to 100 feet above ground level, and are defense-maneuvering qualified and must be air combat instructor qualified. The graduate must have recent experience of 16 sorties in preceding 60 days, 10 sorties in preceding 30 days, at least 3 of which are devoted to air combat training and all physical and flight checks accomplished prior to arrival. Officers must possess a Top Secret (TS) clearance. The curriculum consists of 152+ hours of academic work supported by 45+ hours of related combat flight activities and 3+ hours of device (simulator) training. Each flight sortie requires approximately 6 hours of additional time for planning, briefing, and critique. Classes are small (4 students), permitting a high instructor-student ratio and providing concentrated instruction. Highly experienced and academically qualified faculty are involved in all phases of the program. Adequate equipment and facilities are available and maintained in a high state of readiness.
