Phabulous Phantoms (Updated More Photos 27/02)

Postby bigcrow on Fri 05 Dec 2014, 1:17 pm

Seeing as it’s a Friday I thought I'd share a few F-4's from over the years. Such an iconic aircraft, the look the sound it’s got everything, it will be a sad day when they finally dont grace our skies anymore.. First up quite a few UK examples a mixture of mine & dad's shots... :smile:

These really are fine...

That day at Wattisham was something else - it was almost like being at home when the heavens parted... an almost Biblical downpour...

Top notch. Consider myself lucky to have grown up just down the road from Wattisham at just the right point in time.

Stu these pics are amazing. The pics of the Black Bunny, I'm sure that or one of them became one of our 74 Sqn F4Js, I am thinking it may have been ZE352??
