Photo Comment

Although I'm not a Phan of special color schemes and subsequently do not point my camera and lens into the direction of such an aircraft, I make sometimes exceptions. During the Dutch air Phorce days in 2013 I made such an exception as there was a Phantom involved (and I am a bit of a Phantom Phreak). The Luftwaffe managed to paint this F-4F in these "Phantom Pharewell" / "40 Jahre F-4F" colours, to commemorate Phorty years of Phantom operations within the Luftwaffe. The aircraft only Phlew like this during the Phinal days of the Phantom in Germany.
