Imagine my surprise on this bleak January afternoon, when two unplanned F-4E Phantoms dropped in. I was not allowed close to their parking at this time, but later found out that they were Egyptian Air Force F-4Es on their way to the US for depot maintenance. They had all their nationality markings overpainted and temporary US military markings applied for the trip, but the landing at Keflavik was unplanned and due to mechanical problems with one of the two. The weather was not good for some time and I was able return in February and photograph both still waiting for repairs.
