All US Navy versions of the McDonnell Douglas (Q) F-4 B/J/N/S Phantom is uncovered. Although this aircraft doesn't fly with the US Navy for quite some years now, most of the F-4 N/S pictures were taken 5 years ago during the last weeks of their operational life with VX-30 at Point Mugu. These on-the-flightline and in-the-hangar photos are combined with recent taken pictures of F-4 B, J, N & S Phantoms preserved at museums all over the USA to make it one very complete book.
You'll get clear & detailed pictures of the complete fuselage, both radar sets, the various ECM/RHAW systems (also the covers removed), the two wing variants (thin and thick wings), the two engine types, the different cockpits in crisp detail (and yes, you can read the instruments), the two ejection seats (Mk5 and Mk7), some NOLO in-flight pictures, a complete maintenance section, 18 pages of armament with several pictures taken during the Vietnam war and with accurate drawings from the hand of Jim Rotramel, and a pages with the end of several QF-4s....
This book has the size of 21 x 24 cm (5,33 x 9.5 inch), contains 176 pages + 2 additional large foldouts ( 1 meter / 40" long) with completely revised (and very accurate) 1/72nd & 1/48th scale drawings and the cockpit lay-out diagrams of the F-4B/N and F-4J/S by Willy Peeters.
