    A F-22 banks away from a QF-4E and dwarfs it with it's wingspan. The F-4 is a pretty big plane folks...
    Part of a Heritage Flight consisting of a P-51D, F-15C, F-22A and a QF-4E.

      well it was performing low-level carpet bombings during the 'nam, it had to have high payload options and huge wings to give it enough lift during low speed low altitude action
      great plane
      super shot!

      This is an extreme crop of a 4 ship Heritage Flight, JLS. Nothing was being shot down and the QF-4 has a real pilot flying it.

      Thanks Peppe -

      Freaky shot!! Awesome! The wing area of the Raptor is massive

      I would think that the F22 could do some amazing things as a drone...

      Although the F-22 could make quick work of an F-4, I can't help myself but have a certain loyalty to the F-4. Nice shot.

      The F-4 will always be a favorite, Bob. Thanks -
