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


Buccaneers from 12 Squadron with 43 Squadron Phantoms at the end of Exercise LIME JUG. Crown Copyright 1970.




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