Request Permission To Buzz The Tower!

Recommended Posts

Im playing around with G2XPL and created some photo scenery for Phoenix.. I took the default F4 Phantom up so I could get a quick look at how it came out.

 

FYI - These airports are all freeware from Mister6X.

BEAUTIFUL! If you'd have taken a Tomcat for a flyby, then I would have had to say "Negative, Ghostrider. The pattern is full!" ;)

 

Slightly disappointing in that you did not have the burners lit when you buzzed the tower!....  :Devil:

 

Excellent job on the photoscenery!! Whose F-4 is that? It's a gorgeous beast (Phantoms are phantastic IMHO)

True story, I was in Korea during an exercise working in the control tower.  We were under simulated attack with live F4s.  I was ducked down and I looked up at the moment and saw a Marine Corps F4 just before he screamed right over the top of the tower...maybe 200 ft above...just had time to brace myself for the sound.  Holy crap it was loud.  I hated that exercise.

True story about one of your F-4s on this side of the pond. Back when I was a Cadet in the Air Training Corps - I was about 14 years old or so (1980) we were on a visit to RAF Spadeadam in Cumbria. It is used as a practice range for all kinds of fighters and bombers, including USAF. There was a dummy airfield set up - emplacements with old Bofors AA guns, ploughed strip for a runway, etc. Well, we were allowed to explore the old stuff (too much Health & Safety for it to happen today!). One of my mates was clambering up the ladder on the outside for an old comms/radio/radar trailer. I heard a faint whistling noise with an edge to it. I turned round in just enough time to shout "PHANTOM!" & then cover my ears. Poor Brian was hanging on to that ladder and nearly dropped of it in fright and being deafened. That F-4 was low and motoring too! It stayed around for a little while - long enough for us to try and track it with a nearby Bofors; the azimuth handle freed up, but the elevation wouldn't. As you can imagine it was an utter failure on our part - we couldn't crank the old rusty thing fast enough! What a laugh!

 

Don't know if the F-4 guys had seen us, but when they left the range the pilot rocked the wings (maybe they all did that anyway to wave goodbye to the range, but we like to think it was for us! :dance: )

 

 

Ahem. I digress.  :Shame On You:
