Topic of the Week #30: Phabulous Phantoms

Post by shorsley »

So as the Phantom was my second option for last week's comp, this week I'd like to see five of your best F-4 Phantom shots.

And to make life a little easier this week, they don't have to be from different operators (they can all be from the same operator if you want). They can be flying, static, Museum pieces, not even the whole aircraft or feature multiple aircraft - as long as at least one of them is a Phantom.

Good Luck.

Not a competition entry but here is a gratuitous scan of a line up of 25 Phantoms at DM in 1980, mainly ex USN & USMC aircraft withdrawn after the Vietnam war:

Leeming, Jan 2001. It would be scrapped months later, in hindsight should've bid to purchase the tail :rolling_eyes:

Not in the competition, simply the photo with the most Phantoms in it (try counting)
