The small dark grey areas within the non slip paint is where there are small access panels to get to the fuel tank sender units

If you like Phantoms (and who in their right mind doesn't!) you'll love this book...
A stunning photowork from Ian Black, of UK F-4's.

P6 Driver, great pic (#336) but the aircraft was the last airworthy F4J(UK) that now happens to be in USN markings. Though, to be fair, it was theirs to start with! It was still serviceable - yes, even the radar - when it was shut down for the last time. If you look carefully on your next visit, the Wattisham frequency card is still on the front canopy rail.

I might bow out of the thread following this post as I've pretty much exhausted my stock of Phantom photos! I'll post more if I find any, but won't post the work of others.

My earlier pics were pulled by Flickr so at Coff's suggestion I'll have a stab with PB.

Skyflash Hybrid ?

It looks like "H" has a Skyflash Hybrid on Stn 4 - front right Aero 7a, rather than the usual Sparrow III Ballast, as on "F".
