The Mach 2 F-4 Phantom is one of the best known of the RAF's postwar jet fighter aircraft. Concentrating on the Phantom's final years of service, this title features a pilot's own first-hand accounts as well as anecdotal material drawn from other ex-Phantom crew, supported by colour photography.
IAN BLACK is probably the best-known fast jet photographer in Europe today, his material gracing the covers of books and magazines around the world. He flew Lightnings, Phantoms and Tornadoes with the RAF, leaving in 1993 to fly the Mirage 2000 fighter with the French Air Force. Ian now flies the ultra long haul A340-600 with Virgin Atlantic Airways. He lives in Yorkshire and East Anglia.
