Talking

Erik and Sergio - the Phantom is a very special fighter and it's shape is powerful. I served in the IAF and worked on the weapon delivery system AVIONICS of the F-4E Phantom 4 years as duty service and six years for two months each year as a reservist 1977 - 1987. The service of the Phantom in the IAF is full with many excellent operations as bombing the Sirian head quarter in Damasque in Yom
Kippur war and strategic deep bombing in Egypt and no less than 120 Arab downed planes !!!
The IAF Phantom served between 1969 - 2004 for 35 years.
I always have warm feelings regarding the Phantom and to see it takeoff at night with two afterburners glowing 30 meter above the head during night flights was astonishing !!!

Yair, there is a song in Russian from hippie age.... "... my Phantom, like a fast bullet in the sky blue and clear, with a roar is gaining height...."
It is the great jet.

Dane - the Phantom is holding the undisputed title of being the most produced westren supersonic fighter as more 5100 were built - a testimony for a great plane.

Phantom vs Lightning

I start here a comparision between the two excellent fighters.
The Phantom was the most versatile fighter ever and the Lightning was the best climber ever - 50 kfeet in one min !!!
I put them side by side in 1:48 scale.

This is exactly what I meant: Phantom was, is and will be unique plane. The words from the song that I quoted, expressed and express admiration for this plane.

Lightning vs Phantom more images

The Phantom and Lightning are very close and very remote at ones.
They have two engines with almost the same thrust but in different configuration - in the lightning each Avon engine sit above the other with a shift in location and in the Phantom side by side.
The Phantom fuselage was much better in internal fuel capacity which was the flow of the Lightning that always had short legs in terms of limited range.
The J79 main issue was the heavy black smoke - something that helped to detect it from distance - issue that was resolved in 1973 or after Vietnam were more than 700 lost from all reasons from all branches - USAF NAVY MARINES. The total prduction of the Lighning was 330 only in comparition .
The Phantom saw constant battles in many fronts and mainly in Vietnam and middle east wars
While the Lightning saw very little action against Yemen but no score of shootdown while the Phantom killed hundreds and only 120 by the IAF !!!
Will continue .
