Into the Dragon's Lair by N0T3R Into the Dragon's Lair by N0T3R
F-4 pulls vertical in fight versus MiG's after his Sparrow's miss. F-4 cutout and background are from a former members of SSW, can't remember who submitted them unfortunately.

Excellent demonstration of why the F-4 is sometimes called the Triumph of Thrust Over Aerodynamics.  She couldn't turn with a MiG, but in a climbing or diving fight, she was unmatched.

Yes, the classic Energy vs. Angles.  Thanks for the reply.

a 1 V 2 with a tight turning MIG is a bad thing.....but it looks like those MIGs have no interest in going vertical with the ol'F-4.  Besides, you can bet there is another "Fighting Shamrock" out there ready to pick one of those MIGs off!  I can almost smell the JP4....

Beautiful work as always my friend.  Just beautiful.

Excellent.

I think the BG and cutout were a Graham contribution.
