{detailed description}"When you watch her take off, you see her arched nose and down-swept stabilator separated by a bulky midriff that looks as awkward as a goose with drooping tail feathers and middle-aged spread". So wrote a spokesman for the US Navy, first customer for the Phantom. An Air Force major was even more outspoken: "When I first saw a Phantom I thought it so ugly I wondered if it had been delivered upside-down". Who would have thought the grotesque object they were referring to would be the greatest combat aircraft of its day? Big, tough and enormously capable, the F-4 Phantom has twin engines that make noises like a vast celestial organ, and leave sooty trails. Under its broad body and wings it carries a bigger load of weapons than any other fighter, and it set more world records for speed, climb and ceiling than any other aircraft in history. Still in production after over twenty years in service the great multi-role Phantom is still hard to beat.
First in a new Ian Allan series of highly illustrated books dealing with modern aircraft, this book by outstanding aviation writer, Bill Gunston, tells the history of how the Phantom was designed, how it works, how it flies and how it fights. It will be of interest to the professional, the amateur aircraft enthusiast the spotter and the modeller.
