1. - Do to the limitations of my photo host (Postimage), I can’t upload any photo or drawing bigger than 10MB to this blog. This means that my very large scans (Up to 52MB) need to be reduced.
When I do that, I realize that some of the smaller lettering can become illegible. If this happens and you really need that drawing, send me an email requesting a larger copy. I may be contacted at: aviationarchives(at)gmail.com
Most of the time, something can be arranged; but, please be patient, as this blog is generating a lot of discussion and requests and I do have a life!.
2. – Next a plea, if you have any material such as photos, manuals, patches, brochures or drawings. Or anything else, (Especially Douglas, McDonnell Aircraft or McDonnell Douglas); please get in touch with me at the email above and we will work something out to get it published.
After all, that is why I started this blog so as to preserve and disseminate all this material before it is lost or destroyed! I have dumpster dived and grabbed anything I could over the years to save material; but, I have seen way too much of it thrown away. Let’s not let that happen!
3. – If you have any comments or thoughts on these notes or any thing else. Contact me at: aviationarchives(at)gmail.com or use the comment link below

An updated copy (Last?) of the F-4 Production Configuration Chart. When I was in the F-4 Configuration Control Group in St. Louis and later on in the Engineering Change Order Group, we were updated every quarter with this F-4 Aircraft Production Configuration Chart. This one covers from Oct 1954 to Dec 1977. It is a quick way to see what equipment was added or deleted from block to block on the F-4 Phantom II aircraft!
