F-4 Phantom II Development

Scan1714a One of the best side view/development illustrations on the F-4 from F4H-1 to F-4K/M that I have seen. (I would love to credit this chart; but, I don’t know where I got it.)

Hello Ron
I just chanced upon your site - great stuff!
This drawing is from the Squadron/Signal book PHANTOM II A Pictorial History of the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II, by Lou Drendal.
It was one of the first books on the Phantom I had.

Best regards

Great! Thanks for the info! I should have thought of that booklet as it was one of my first, also.

You're welcome. My bad, it should be Lou Drendel, not Drendal.

Do you have any articles/drawings of the F-4B conformal weapons carriage that you can post?
I read somewhere that it could actually outperform a "clean" F-4 - incredible.

Thanks, Fred

Fred - Stay tuned! You have inspired me to do a post on it in the near future. I have some tech reports; but, no photos yet.
