AVIATION CLASSICS MCDONNELL DOUGLAS F-4 PHANTOM II ISSUE 25

With a unique design that caused the first RAF engineer who saw one to question if it had been delivered the right way up, the F-4 Phantom – or 'Toom' as it is popularly known – is a Cold War icon, but one that is still in service in a number of countries today.

This 132 page glossy A4 perfect bound 'bookazine' will look at how:

From its first flight on May 27, 1958 the aircraft displayed tremendous performance with a maximum speed of Mach 2.2 and a service ceiling of 60,000ft (18,300m)
During the early 1960s the US Navy set 16 world speed and altitude records with the F-4, five of which were to remain unbroken for more than a decade. These performances meant the type was quickly acquired by the US Air Force in 1963 with the US Navy taking the F-4 to war for the first time in Vietnam the following year
Aside from the US armed forces the Phantom was exported to 11 countries worldwide with 5195 being built, a remarkable record that may only be broken by the F-16 later this century
In the UK, Phantoms flew with the Royal Navy from the last of its large fixed-wing aircraft carriers and with the Royal Air Force in both the fighter and fighter bomber roles until the last were replaced by the Tornado in 1992.
