Here´s two F-4S Phantoms from CVW-5 as they appeared in 1982, while aboard USS Midway. Most Phantom squadron at this time, have either transitioned to the F-14 Tomcat or been disbanded. However, VF-161 and VF-151 would continue to fly the Phantom until 1986. As it´s evident from these drawings, the many years at sea have taken it´s toll on the paint. Hope you like them.
