A thread on Pprune full of awesome personal pics from a couple of Phantom pilots.

My favourite pic of the lot. Phantastic biggrin



In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

Awesome. The RAF stationed some Phantoms in the Falklands after the war didn't it?

Excellent shots.I remember i had a pic of the Super Entendard cut out off our local newspaper on my mirror in my room in 1982 , i think i was the only one at school ( primary) that had any interest in the conflict as my Dad was glued to the news channels while it was going on.It wasn't until later i realised the Entendard was the 'enemy' plane biggrin
