    I hope they can save her, that is one of the sharpest F-4's I've ever seen.

    Yes, a good cause; that Phantom has been a feature at RAF Leuchars for years and looks awesome in its Treble One Sqn colours. Here's a picture I took at one of the Leuchars airshows many years ago as a youngster.

    One thing that would guarantee its long term preservation would be to donate it to a museum, the museum at East Fortune in Scotland is probably the best place since its collection policy covers aircraft with a Scottish connection and Black Mike has been with the Tremblers at Leuchars for years.
