Remark Photographer
76-1605 (cn 21435/924) Taken atop a barrel roll of F-4E, 66-0323 above this formation of Boeing E-3A, 76-1605, F-4Es, 66-0330 and 66-0382. This photograph was a well kept secret for some years, as the pilot specifically asked that it not be shown to USAF officials, because one was not supposed to roll around the E-3A! The snow on the ground makes the airplanes difficult to spot, but it is something not likely to be done again.

Nice shot i love to see pictures like this

A visitor from - posted Thu July 26, 2012:
By the year this was taken, I thought that all Phantoms were painted in Vietnam era camo. I was in the Air Force in the early 80s and I never saw an F-4 in other than camo. It's funny, all the airplane photos I had developed on base were somehow ruined. The ones I had developed off base were fine. Hmmm?

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu July 19, 2012:
Very nice one, I can imagine the aerobatic figure involved...!!

A visitor from Singapore posted Sat May 29, 2010:
The things we do for our passion.Whether its flying or photography!! :) Great shot!! Hope the pilot didn't get into any trouble.

A visitor from - posted Sat March 13, 2010:
Very unique, considering the photographer description. Perfect framing, amazing composition. Makes me think of the inverted F-4 from where this 10 stars pic was taken. Frank from BUE - e01

A visitor from Iceland posted Wed November 11, 2009:
Masterpiece this photo. One of the all time best!

A visitor from United States posted Tue February 24, 2009:
Nice photo! good job!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat December 6, 2008:
Awesome, just awesome!

A visitor from - posted Sun November 30, 2008:
It's awesome

A visitor from United States posted Sat August 30, 2008:
This rare shot had to be taken from a third escort fighter,which had to barrel-roll over the AWACS.very unusual perspective.

A visitor from United States posted Wed August 20, 2008:
I absolutely love the tense, Cold War espionage feel to this shot.

A visitor from United States posted Sat July 19, 2008:
That's so cold war..but still amazing

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue May 20, 2008:
This is an absolutly amazing picture of two beautiful birds. I wish I could give it six stars.

A visitor from Germany posted Sat May 10, 2008:
Perfect and extraordinary angle.

A visitor from United States posted Wed June 14, 2006:
All this beauty and a once in a life time view makes this so special. Bet the photographer still has pleasent "flying dreams". Wow!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon April 3, 2006:
Lovely photo

A visitor from Slovakia posted Sat March 11, 2006:
Super pics.

A visitor from Pakistan posted Wed January 11, 2006:
Nice pics

A visitor from United States posted Sat December 10, 2005:
The white on white aspect of the image is unintentionally beautiful, even though the AWACS aircraft is white for a different reason altogether. Overall the composition and the clarity contribute to produce a very subdued but powerful photograph. Five stars plus.

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 11, 2005:
IT is a picture that no one has ever seen or will ever see.

A visitor from Canada posted Thu November 10, 2005:
Any shot with a phantom in it is alright by me.

A visitor from United States posted Sun October 23, 2005:
I flew F-4E's... love this one.

A visitor from United States posted Fri October 21, 2005:
Simply breathtaking!

A visitor from Iceland posted Tue October 11, 2005:
