Thanks, sfm818 ... I'd picked up the Super-Demon earlier. It was the singularly single-seater imagery of the F4H-1 that piqued my interest.

Welcome on board, by the way. Good to see new faces, and I hope you stick around and contribute.

Good to see the Greek F4's and F16's participating. Is RIAT picking up their fuel bill?

They may be bringing Raki to trade for jet fuel.....although both are similar.

BTW I have a photo of the original F4H-1 I took as a kid at an open house at Edwards AFB in the 50s. I can't post pics here but if anyone wants it, let me know, PM or otherwise, and how to get it to you. From same 50s display also have F-107, F-105, F-8, A-4 & B-52/X-15 combo. Would like to see 'em posted here.

Pardon me if someone has already pointed this out but shouldn't the title of this thread really be Phantom Phriday?

Thanks for all the lovely pics.

Hi All, this is my first post on Prune! I'm a very lowly ppl and aviation enthusiast but I wanted to contribute to this great thread.
In 1984, I wrote to RAF Leuchars asking if I could go for a flight in a Phantom. Obvious answer, er no!! However, I was invited by the station PRO to visit the station. I did so on 15 August 1984 and had a fantastic few hours, visiting the crew room and QRA shed and aprons, where I was allowed to take photographs - mostly what I wished, apart from in particular close ups of the cockpits of 2 Harriers that were there. I had a reasonable 35mm film camera (Pentax KX) but somewhat inferior to what I now have. I have scanned 2 images from some old photographs that I hope you will like. Being able to sit in the cockpit of one and photograph the crew strapping in and starting up the adjacent jet is something that I will never forget! So thanks again to the RAF and of course the PRO I am a bit worried that the scanned images are going to be rather small in size but we'll see.
