3716 (cn 4388) Celebrating 50 years of WTD 61 with this outstanding c/s. Note all the physical formulas onto the fuselage. Does anybody know what they are for?

Formulas from flight dynamics. BTW great pics!

A visitor from Germany posted Wed October 21, 2009:
Great pic! The formula on the air intake is the formula for aerodynamic lift.

A visitor from Poland posted Wed August 29, 2007:
Beautiful livery! Too bad I haven't got a chance yet to see the F-4 in flying display. Thanks very much for sharing that photo!

A visitor from Belgium posted Wed August 22, 2007:
Nice colors indeed, these formulas seem logic as WTD 61 is the Bundeswehr Technical & Air Worthiness Center. The center is responsible for flight test and evaluation of Luftwaffe aircraft. Something like Dryden in the US. Probably great spotting location.

A visitor from Mexico posted Wed August 22, 2007:
Outstanding image!!! as for the formulas, one seems to express energy in function of mass, speed and weight. another, seems to be for acceleration in function of gravity and speed. it's hard to tell for the other ones.

A visitor from United States posted Wed August 22, 2007:
Great photo! the formulas on the plane are various physics equations used for finding velocities and momentums, etc. i recognize some of these from my physics class. hard to believe that i remember anything seeing as how i spent all my time there on airliners.net!

A visitor from Brazil posted Wed August 22, 2007:
These formulas are aerodynamics equations.

A visitor from United States posted Tue August 21, 2007:
Cool!! Never seen any F4 Phantom that looks like this! Hope a modeling company can come out with a
plastic kit. I wonder about those formulas, too?!

A visitor from Colombia posted Tue August 21, 2007:
Well, looks lite it's a test plane, they need to gahter some data and from that extract more data. I think they need the formulas at hand ;)

Those Germans really know how to make an airplane look good.

A visitor from Switzerland posted Tue August 21, 2007:
Very nice colors!!!!!

A visitor from United States posted Tue August 21, 2007:
Very cool! SO far, I can just make out the formulas for acceleration of a body in flight and Newton's Law. Definitely a cool paint job.

A visitor from - posted Tue August 21, 2007:
I work with aeronautical formulas everyday, but don't know these ones. The one on the rear fuselage seems to be thermodynamics, but I'm not sure.

A visitor from Greece posted Tue August 21, 2007:
That's a Plhying Cab haha ! The formulas look to me like fluid mechanics laws.

A visitor from United States posted Tue August 21, 2007:
Sufficiently crisp to read the formulae; nicely framed vert. & horiz. Great subject.

A visitor from Sweden posted Tue August 21, 2007:
60 Jahre Flugerprobung. The formulas represent the forces on the airplane and the pilot. It s the 60th aniversary of flight testing in the Luftwaffe.

A visitor from Malta posted Tue August 21, 2007:
A unique looking Phantom. I guess those formulas are what's making the aircraft fly in the air :P. I can see some rms formulas and momentum and even some Trigonometry.
