I am a Phantom Phanatic since I worked on this "beautiful" aircraft for 12 years with the German Airforce. I was a crewchief on the F-4F Phantom II at 36th FBW / Hopsten AB located in Northwest Germany in the 80�s. I started photographing in 2004 when the retirement of the Fluglehrzentrum F-4F (Flying Training Centre F-4F) at Hopsten AB came close. Nowadays I visit some Spottersdays or Airshows when not too far away. I am collecting mainly pictures of the F-4 Phantom to cover them all on my website.
