(ex USAF serial # 65-0749 ) The one and only operational civilian F-4 thanks to an Act of Congress. Painted in the colors of 63-7680 (555th TFS/8th TFW out of Uborn,RTAB,Jan. 1967), the MiG killer flown by Col. Robin Olds during Operation Bolo. Col. Olds apparently had a fondness for this bird hence the honor.

Now, that is one outstanding photo of an F-4 with some special history to it. With respect to both Col. Olds and the photographer, nice work all around.

It is incredible to see such a piece of history; Col. Olds combat story was showed in "dogfights", my favorite tv program (in the History Channel). The photo is just beautiful.
