The humidity during the Malta Air Show 2003 was quite high, resulting in the vapour cloud around this F-4F.

The F-4 was rated at Mach 2.23 (1472 mph, 2370 km/h) at 40000 ft (12190 m). I loved working on the Double-Ugly beast!

The good old, bad ass smoker in action! It isn't pretty (duh), but it looks just right. Aggressive, mean and loud! Even today it's still impressive and effective as a fighter, probably more than all of it's contemporaries, even the mig 21.

Long live the Rhino!

Some are saying that this aircraft is breaking the sound barrier....but I doubt that's the case. I think it's just vapor clouds from high humidity like the photographer said. They usually don't go super-sonic at air shows.
