F-100 Super Sabre & F-4 Phantom Twilight Afterburner Passes at Airventure 2015!
With very few operational USAF F-4E Phantoms remaining, their appearances were stricken from demonstrations at public venues. Well, that was the case, but the world wanted more. In a rare move, the powers that be chose to send AF 74-0626, a QF-4E Phantom II, repurposed as a target drone, to Airventure in Oshkosh, Wisconsin for one final hurrah!
Along with the Phantom, an F-100 Super Sabre owned and flown by Dean “Cutter” Cutshall, demonstrated the heart-stopping 'pop' created by engaging the afterburner.
Together, they basked in one of the most amazing sunsets to grace an Airventure celebration.
