More interesting 'British' Phantoms
USMC F-4B '207 AA' with 892 Sqn tail colours stranded on Ark Royal. RN personnel repainted the tail to match their FG1's, as the ship was to dock at Malta and US personnel were not welcome at the time

'Colonial Navy' was a well known zapping of XV590. XT864 was another interesting one as it wore 'FLY NAVY' instead of ROYAL NAVY' titles.
