In your opinion, what F-4 Phantom II is displayed in the most striking visual manner? Pictures are welcome.

I'm guessing you're referring to currently displayed a/c.
But, I prefer one loaded with weapons................

I am a fan of Col. Robin Olds F-4 that is on display at the NMUSAF. That is my favorite, and had a great story to go with it.

I really like that one too, although I wish they had bombs on both wings! :D

I personally like Langley AFB's display resident MIG killer F-4C-23-MC, Serial No. 64-0748

these were taken in 2005 at Langley AFB shortly after
going on display. 64-0748 is credited with a MIG 21
kill on 20 May 1967 over North Vietnam. Flown by Maj.
Robert Janca and 1st Lt. William Roberts Jr of the 389
TFS/366 TFW. Callsign: Elgin 01

:shock: WOW those pictures came up big. I guess that's photobucket for you. I'll see what I can do to trim them down.

Considering that it is a gate guard, she looks great. Some gate guards are actually kept in really great shape, while others as we know are not.

Might want to resize those images to 800 pixels wide as a courtesy to lower bandwidth users.

Bill.

I'm all over it Bill. I resized the pictures, now it's just a matter of how long it's takes photobucket to update and take affect. One of them has resized so far. Sorry for the inconvience.

I believe it is Elroy. It would make sense to paint it up to look like Showtime 100 as Cunningham used to represent San Diego, prior to his major screwup.
