Pharewell Phantom

Hattip The Aviationist: You get double sonic booms from the last U.S. F-4, flown by the last official American Phantom phlyer, Det. 1, 82nd Aerial Target Squadron commander Lt. Col. Ronald King, USAF

Skyes9: In an attempt at documenting the last USAF F-4 Phantoms in flying service, I flew to Holloman AFB, NM. They’ll be used as ground targets from now on as the QF-16 takes over. In this video you will see the start up, taxi out, and phly by of the F-4s, followed by water cannon salute and then shut down of the USAF McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II.
