Another airplane wreck in Palau

F-4 Phantom Jet just outside the mouth of Subic Bay at depth of 43 meters in sand bottom.
This is basicly just the airframe, the plane have been stripped of all usable parts. It was probably pushed off a US aircraft carrier.
The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom is a tandem two-seat, twin-engined, all-weather, long-range supersonic jet interceptor fighter/fighter-bomber originally developed for the U.S. Navy by McDonnell Aircraft. Proving highly adaptable, it became a major part of the air wings of the United States Navy, Marine Corps, and Air Force. It was used extensively by all three of these services during the Vietnam War, serving as the principal air superiority fighter for both the Navy and Air Force, as well as being important in the ground-attack and reconnaissance roles by the close of U.S. involvement in the war.

    Great shot. Also known as the “flying brick”, or, proof that you can make a brick fly if you provide enough thrust.

  • The flying brick is a good description :-) Thank you.
