Default F-4E SR-71 escort

So I call this one my SR-71 escort. It takes the Blackbird to the limits of enemy airspace and greets it as it comes out.

So the SR-71 must decelerate so the escort can keep up with it?

When it comes to F-4's I prefer the standard bread-and-butter versions......

While I do appreciate the OP's efforts, the F-4 "Playboy" escort fighter is choice. I would even go so as far as to say that the F-14 "Playboy" would be an even finer choice.

BUT, when it comes to a proper F-4 Phantom, you simply cannot touch the brilliance of the VF-84 Jolly Rogers F-4J Phantom II [5854].


Behold:

Somehow missed this cracking code 3.

Wonderful whiff Shawn.
