McDonnell (Q)F-4 Phantom II

@ Wittman Airport, Oshkosh, WI

July 2010

This was my first trip to Oshkosh and also the first time in recent memory of seeing a Phantom in flight.  Big, loud and proud.  Not sure what was going on with the port engine.  This iconic aircraft entered service in 1960 and is still in service with the US Air Force (as a target drone).  Over 5000 Phantoms were produced from 1958 to 1981.
