    This year is the 50th Anniversary of the first flight of the McDonnell F-4 Phantom II. I believe the first flight was on 27 May 1958. So with this year almost over, I thought it would be nice to post up some badass Phantoms.
    1. QF-4E assigned to Tyndall AFB,FL. This is a drone that will eventually be shot down during WSEP (Weapons Systems Evaluation Program).
    2. F-4C Photo Phantom. This is the last production F-4C to come off the production line at St Louis.
    3. German F-4Fs over the Atlantic for their last trip to the US before retirement.
    4. Turkish F-4E. The Turks have done well with their Phantoms having been updated not too long ago.
    5. 50th Anniversary F-4F over the Atlantic.

    The MRAP. This is my brothers work vehicle. He is with the 300th MP Co currently deployed in Iraq. He's the turret gunner. It's an International WorkStar 7000 chassis with just a few mods. He said don't let the size of these things fool you because they have BALLS. He said when they got them off the plane back in Sept. the drivers were runnin them across the tarmac at like 75-80 mph! They are pretty well explosion proof. one got hit by a 600 lb IED and it never penetrated the hull! The crew was banged up and the gunner died but they didn't know if that was from the explosion or the truck rolling over on him.

    Oh gawd, the 111 is louder. Those crappy Pratt and Whitney TF30s sucked but they could rattle the fillings out of your mouth. But honestly, the F-4 in the air was the loudest. Those General Electric J79s could make a brick fly!

    I saw a raptor last year at the Pittsburgh Air show, damn was it fast! It was doing circles around another bigger jet.

    Yes sir! I love the F-15 but the F-22 always comes out on top in a fight. It's just too manuverable.

    I was pretty shocked to see a U-2 circling the valley a few weeks ago. First 2 F-16's circled around for 45 min then the U-2 showed up on the scene. Pretty cool day. Crappy pics I know but all I had with me was my cell. Good Ole' Skunk Works.
