24414f_a7ae0f4de3b844c9bcca7dc3c546067amv2_d_4128_2322_s_002 A rare chance to own a piece of history! I have just learned that F4H-1 #145310 is for sale. This McDonnell F4H-1F Phantom II is the 11th pre-production example, and the third oldest surviving example of the breed. Credit: Warbird News

Note: My archives show 145307 and 145316 were "Sageburner' aircraft, not 145310 as listed in promo. Also, as a young flight test engineer in 1963, I was in charge of this aircraft and it never carried any "Sageburner" markings. (It might have been a back-up aircraft; but, was never used as such.)
