Global Aviation Resource was well-represented at Wittmund for the events to mark the retirement of the F-4F Phantom II from Luftwaffe service. Full story coming soon….but here’s a sneak peek.
Plenty more in due course, right here on Global Aviation Resource.
They may have Eruo Fighters flying out of Germany in future but they will never replace the might reliable Phantoms. The amount of ammo it can carry is not even half of the tonage the Phantoms could carry but as one GAF person told me why does Germany need large aircraft when the American Air Force is in place to fight the fight if there ever is another. I think he is right but I also think the USA is going to with draw from Europe except for a few bases in England and maybe a base remaining in Turkey.
Kudos to Kevin on such good work. I’m thrilled with the F4F and I will cherish these photos. My question is what are they going to replace that pretty bird with?
Thanks William. The answer to your question is the Eurofighter.
