The F-4 Phantom was put into service almost 50 years ago. They are almost all retired except for a few that appear in Heritage Flight demonstrations and a few other programs. This jet was a workhorse in the Vietnam war, flown by both the Navy off of carriers and by the Air Force off of runways. It proved that you could fly almost anything given a big enough engine. This image was taken at 18mm focal length with an exposure of 1/160 seconds at f/11, ISO 200, with a polarizer.
