Dressed in the squadron markings of VF-114, The "Aardvarks", on display during the 2014 Tico Air Show.
But when I look at this F4 in the pic still has engines the cockpit glass has not been blacked out so it appears to still have full interior would not take much to put this baby back in the air.
The F-4 in these images is an F-4J in the Sundowners Squadron Colors from the S.E. Asia conflict. This aircraft has been refurbished to near perfect condition for museum display only. A lot more effort would be needed to restore this aircraft to full flight status and for a Non-Profit Museum, this just isn't in the cards financially.
There is one F4 I know of some where at another museum somewhere that is still flying. I seen the vid on youtube once but have not found it sence. there are couple skyhawks that have been restored and flying and one 2 seat F100 F that is flying the only one in the world.
The F-4 of which you speak of is most probably a F-4D in S.E. Asia Camouflage livery. This aircraft belongs to the Collings Foundation Vietnam Memorial Flight Training Program.
oh is this the one that sits next to the A7 when it is inside? is it flying or they just pull it in and out fro display only? the F4 is my favorite jet of all time.
Great shot, but watch your spelling Jim. I ain't never seen a McDonnell Pahntom before, but I've seen a few McDonnell Phantoms!
Nice - did this one fly during the show?
