bit of info for you.............thats actually a 74 Squadron RAF Phantom FGR2.......but it might have been an ex Royal Navy F4-K as they passed them on to the RAF when phased out

that paint job was a special when the squadron was about to change to Hawks in a training role...........unfortunatly the aircraft had already retired and never flew in the scheme.......was just a photo oppertunity
