> FredT, Thanks for your reply. Regarding the placement of the RAT on the F-4C
, I understand what you're saying about how if there's a few litres of room to spare somewhere in the airframe, then that's where the RAT will end up. That makes sense to me.
I was actually curious about how the angle of the prop blades on the RAT appear to not be in-line with where the blast of relative airflow / ram air would come from ........ the nose of the F-4.
The RAT on the F-4 appears to me to be positioned sideways as though it is pointing towards the left wingtip instead of the F-4's nose. However, I understand that perhaps it was in the transition of being stowed away when the photo was taken and that it might rotate about 90 degrees while retracting. Just an observation. Not a big deal.
