Wonderful shot of one of the greatest combat jets of all time. Very dynamic capture.
That 'lump' above the star+bar on the intake - that's the ECM housing. We had the J model in one of our squadrons in the RAF (No74 Tigers). We had the ECM removed (for some reason) but the aircraft always retained the housing IIRC.

This shot is so good that you can see a cylindrical protrusion just above the USA decal. I would have said that it was the inflight refueling probe, except that we can see thats not the case. Anyone know what it is? I thought I read somewhere that the J-model was the fastest of the Phantom series.

Great shot. Reminds me of the days in VF-96 on the USS Enterprise CVAN-65
