Just Phantoms ..... Konya, Turkey June '14 - pic heavy !

Postby trend71uk on Wed 23 Jul 2014, 9:47 pm

Hi all,

Last month I was fortunate enough to spend a couple of days on the Turkish air force base at Konya during the annual Anatolian Eagle exercise.
Still trawling through the several thousand or so shots but thought I'd put a few (ok, lots) F-4's up in a post of their own.
11 Phantoms deployed for the exercise from the units at Eskisehir and Erhac.
Access during the visit was superb and with over 100 fast jets on base it was a busy couple of days.
With thanks to Paul as always for all the work and great company during the trip and to everyone involved with making the visit happen .
Good to meet up with Kevin, Tony , Hans, Mick et all.
Enough waffle , here's the mighty F-4..................

Heaven
The Turkish Airforce have always been very accomodating on base visits.
What is the guided weapon designation?

WOW! What a super set of pictures and thanks for sharing them. Can never have too many Phantom shots. I also was wondering what the ordnance was on the port pylon. Is it a TV guided missile of some sort?

Thanks for the comments:) The missile is a Popeye AGM-142 Have Nap . Makes the F-4 look even more brutal than usual .
Cheers,
