Had the opportunity to visit 117 Combat Wing, home of the F-4E AUP Phantoms some time ago (a journalist friend was flying and asked if i could take some external shots.....not an opportunity to be missed :yahoo: ). So here is a small sample of the photos that i have managed to process. C&C welcomed
Thanks for looking

Some cracking shots, but the last (sepia) one is stunning. You're a very lucky man, and your friend even more so!

Thanks for the comments. The one thing that i regret is the fact that i missed the night session :mad:
Anyway...below are a few more from that day.
c & c always welcomed

Start Up

Interesting Detail...start up checks include the testing of the AAR system. Never new that greek rhinos had all the plumbing installed for this and the system is operational.

Friendly wave
