Welcome to IN THE STUDIO with Phantom Menace.
Phantom Menace features the F-4 Phantom which saw extensive use in the Vietnam war, and proved to be the most versitle combat aircraft employed during the Southeast Asia conflict. It could perform the diversified roles of air superiority, close air support, interdiction, air defense and long range bombardment with devastating effectiveness.
The F-4, initially an all-weather, high-altitude, two-place interceptor used by the Navy for fleet defense, made its maiden flight in May 1958. With two powerful engines, it easily reached speeds over Mach 2, and had a maximum altitude near 60,000 feet.

This image will change frequently as work continues on this painting. If you ever flew the F-4, please drop me a line. I'd enjoy hearing from you.
