Last F-4 Trap Photo -? For Screeners

Sat Sep 08, 2007 2:35 pm

Back in 1986 I took a photo of the last US Navy F-4 Phantom trap. The link is below.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Image:F...st_operational_carrier_landing.jpg

Question is, given it is the ONLY photograph of this event, would there be any chance of it's acceptance. I do not have the original negative, that went to the Naval Archives, but I have an internegative and a print that can be reworked.

Thanks,

Jeff

Given the rarity of the shot, I would hope that anet adds it.

Jeff

With some work I cannot see any reason for it not to be added to the database.

Regards

I love that picture. Of course, the Phantom is my favorite airplane so I'm a bit prejudiced, but certainly a cool picture.

I sure hope it gets in, Jeff! I will certainly add it to my favorites!  Smile

Good luck!
