McDonnell Douglas F-4J/S Phantom II

@ San Diego Air & Space Museum, San Diego, CA

April 2014

The Phantom on display here is the aircraft flown by Duke Cunningham and William P. Driscoll in Vietnam from the USS Constellation (CV-64).  Cunningham was the first ace to get all of his kills with missiles.  Even though production ceased in 1979, many are still in service today around the world and in the USAF.  Of the 5,195 built, 2,600 went to the USAF,  and approximately 1,200 for the U.S. Navy and Marine Corps.  Nikon D7000 w/18-200 mm, processing with Photomatix Pro and Aperture.
