Phantom of the skies

This F4 Phantom flew off the USS Ranger and might have engaged a MiG like the one that sits right next to it. One of its engines sites outside the jet. This image was taken at 18mm focal length with an exposure of 1/60 seconds at f/4.5, ISO 400.

The F-4 Phantom shot down way more MiG's than MiG's shot down F-4s..... The F-4 was proof that you could put a big enough engine on a brick and make it fly.

but look from the other side. Mig is way way cheaper than Phantom. So if you compare the cost numbers I bet the cost downed migs are much less than phantoms!

The design of Mig is very elegant, yet powerful - it just a beauty.
