Rhino's Return


RIAT 2003 20th July 2003 - RAF Fairford

After an absence last year from RIAT, this year The Phantoms was back with vengeance. Not one but five F-4s, including a RAF Phantom albeit a static one.

The Luftwaffe Phantom display was full of power speed and lots of black smoke, totally awesome !!!

There was also the static Luftwaffe F-4F 38+26 JG-74

Also in the line up was two F-4E 2020 Phantoms from Turkey. Very coolly turned out with their Pirate markings. Thanks for the dried apricot guys !
