The F-4 Phantom

Reader John shares his photo of an F-4 Phantom.

Those flew out of our local AFB during the '60's and I've always thought that the Phantom was one of the coolest, mot evil looking aircraft of the era.

Thanks for sharing, John.

They are very cool looking.

Back in the day, we used to say that with enough F-4s, B-52, and C-130s, we could take over the world. :-)

One of the true air classics. And one of the few used by Air Force, Navy and Marines. Proof that if you give it big enough engines, even a brick can fly.
