The Coolest toy of All Time-F4 Phantom

I just (in my opinion) got the COOLEST toy of all time. A Warbird collector that was informed of cancer was getting rid of his planes to people he liked. He knew i was into this kind of thing so he would give me a plane. i had to go to work and he said he would swing by with his trailer and drop me off the plane in back behind my barn. When i got home the only thing i saw was the distinctive back fins. I ran around back to see a F4 Phantom. :D :D :D . The left wing is full of holes, the flaps on the right side are frozen, one of the engines has a bent turbine, but other than that she is flight ready. Anyone living around Roswell NM that is interested with helping me fix her up tell me here.

out of those, the MiG 15, no contest, its just such a sweet ass platform and i am a big fan of soviet weapons (find them interesting). my fav. US plane is the fa-18 super hornet, timeless classic

f-16 is best IMO. theres a reason its used so much. the F 14 is like the f 15 but able to be used on a carrier. F4s are outdated and id choose a mig 21 over a mig 15 any day. the f 14s are bigger than the f16s and it has 2 engines and not one. still f 16 all the way.

The mig-15 is a korean war piece of ****! F-14s are big and gay, I've seen one up close they suk. The F-16 is cool, but I would go with the Phantom man. Classic plane, it kicks ass, I want tos ee pics too. And put a piece of papaer in the photo that says "I am not BSing" then I'll belive you

Pics

I am not getting my 10D back from canon for a while, they have to recalibrate my lense and CMOS. But for now i will see if my friend will loan me his laptop so i can put my web cam on it. ill take pics that way.

ALso when i told the story it sounded a little strange when i said

A Warbird collector that was informed of cancer was getting rid of his planes to people he liked. He knew i was into this kind of thing so he would give me a plane. i had to go to work and he said he would swing by with his trailer and drop me off the plane in back behind my barn. When i got home the only thing i saw was the distinctive back fins. I ran around back to see a F4 Phantom.
It wasnt like i didnt know what i was getting it was just a surprise to me to see it. He brought it on this BIGASS Lowboy trailer.

I wonder what kind of lisence i need to fly her?

Im boing to build a runway on my 50 Acres to fly her there once i get training. FAA wont care im in the middle of nowere and i know the Air Traffic Controler at RIA. (Roswell international Airport)

Dude... How are you going to pay for the jet fuel... JP8 I think it is costs a ton... Get some pics though I'm really interested, myself being a future Air Force officer. BTW... I'd take an F-16 anyday. Phantoms are dirty, lol, but thats still cool, I wish I had neighbors like that.
