Does any one know the exact date of the Georgia ANG F-4 Phantoms on that day you took the picture?

Cheers,

Ouch! looks like a broken oil line to me :shock:

Here some more F-15's with two Canadian Hornets from Baden-Sollingen in the background. On the other you see the 81-0049/CR which crashed a few months later due to engine failure.

I've seen Starfighters do that over here at Leeuwarden but I never got to know what caused that smoke. Anybody knows?
