  1. McDonnell Douglas RF-4C Phantom II of the 38th TRS, 26th TRW, based in Rammstein, West Germany during NATO exercise Royal Flush XVI, October 1971. The model features detailed pilot and RSO cockpits with opening canopies, opening radome with antenna, opening inflight refuling receptacle on the aircraft's spine, deployable ram air turbine (RAT), retractable landing gear, and positionable leading edge flaps, airbrakes, flaps, flaperons, spoilerons, tailplanes, and tail hook.
  2. The US Navy's aerial display team the Blue Angels transitioned from the Grumman F-11F Tiger to the McDonnell Douglas F-4J Phantom II in 1969. In 1974, due to the fuel crisis, they switched to the more economical McDonnell Douglas A-4F Skyhawk II, continuing in that aircraft until 1986 and the switch to their current aircraft, the McDonnell Douglas/Boeing F/A-18A/B Hornet (now C/D). The Phantom II notably was also flown by the US Air Force display team the Thunderbirds at the same time as the Blue Angels, the only time both teams have flown similar aircraft (although the Thunderbirds flew the USAF F-4E variant). The models feature detailed pilot and WSO cockpits with opening canopies, opening radome with antenna, retractable landing gear, folding wings, deployable ram air turbine (RAT) and Naval style inflight refueling probe, and positionable flaps, flaperons, spoilerons, leading edge flaps, airbrakes, tailplanes, and tail hook. See more at my Mocpages account. Blue Angels 4-ship diamond of F-4Js. The Blue Angels' F-4J solo aircraft 5 and 6 perform an "Inverted Dirty Pass", wherein the two aircraft make a formation flyby of the crowd with one aircraft inverted. The "Dirty" in the name is an aviation term that refers to the high-drag configuration of the aircraft, with the landing gear and tail hooks deployed. This maneuver is unique to the Blue Angels and not performed by the USAF Thunderbirds.
  3. Capt. Steve Ritchie and Capt . Chuck DeBellevue were 2 of only 5 aircrew in the Vietnam War to have attained the title of "Ace", having scored 5 kills in that conflict in air to air combat. Ritchie retired from the reserves in 1999 as a Brig. General. DeBellevue remained on active duty until 1998, retiring as a Colonel and the last actively serving "Ace". The Collings Foundation preserve and fly a retired F-4D Phantom II at numerous air shows yearly painted in the markings of Ritchie and DeBellevue's MiG Killer aircraft 67-0463. To date it is the only privately-owned and flyable F-4 Phantom II, and took an act of Congress to allow to be returned to flight status in private hands.
