Wolfhound Phantom MLM

Post by VinFlyer »

The MLM F-4E Phathom II in the colors of the 32nd TFS era arrived at the musuem today after a slight delay. It's still without is 32nd Wolfhound and 17th FW emblem but those will be put on later. All in all it looks quite like the old CR Phantoms. For now it's stored at the depot hangar of the musuem and will be put together during the coming months. The public will be able to see it during the open depot days in April.

Nice photoshoot! I think they should park all the 32nd TFS aircraft in front of the shelters in Camp New Amsterdam, so you can have a real nice sunday afternoon walk through the Cold War area.

Cheers, Dick

No, but this (never 32nd in real life) frame is a real MiG-killer, so nothing more then appropriate to have a MiG killmark applied. "Our" J-063 also kept its kill mark after it transferred to another squadron.

According tohttp://208.84.116.223/forums/index.php?showtopic=34347
the kill marking is real, representing a MiG-21 shot down by Lt. Col. Lyle L. Beckers and 1Lt Thomas M. Griffin on September 12, 1972. The aircraft (tail code JJ) and crew were TDY from the 35th TFS, 3rd TFW, and assigned to the 388th TFW at Korat RTAFB.

concerning a question about applying the lots of text-stencilling.
i talked to the people of the paintshop at lelystad: the nose and tailsection: all the text is painted. the fuselage minimum of stencilling and the wings etc: stickers. this is the way the people from the MLM wanted it. so the jhundreds of stencilling will not be applied.
