    phantom over south china sea, 1971

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    RAF Beaufighters attacking near Crete. The plane at the far right of the photo is my Dad's Beaufigther just before it hit the water.

    I've always loved the semi-elliptical shape of the Spitfire's wing!

    Great photo!
    It always seemed a little contradictory to me to have a camouflage paint job and distinctive insignia.

    A bit of cold war nostalgia. Not sure of the year exactly, but that's an F6 Lightning, so after mid 1965, and it's a 23 Sqdn aircraft, so pre-75 when they converted to F-4 Phantoms.

    ^^^ Friend of mine used to fly those interceptions in the early 70s. Every one was 'for real' and if they got lucky, they were directed to a drone and shot it down.
