Simon brilliantly captures the hair-raising moment as the F-4U Ol' Eagle Eye hurtles from the attack area, the air filled with shell bursts, tracers, smoke, and explosions, creating terror among the bridge's defenders.
Each print is signed by renowned fighter ace Brigadier General Robin Olds, who after scoring 24 victories during World War II, achieved another 4 flying the Phantom in Vietnam! Click on the thumbnail image for a larger view, then click your browser's BACK button to return here.

"Phantom Thunder" by William Phillips
In the grand tradition of his Thunder in the Canyon, Into the Throne Room of God and Those Last Critical Moments (all sold out at Publisher), William S. Phillips returns to the skies in his new release, Phantom Thunder. From the thrill of lift-off to the extraordinary exhilaration of in-flight action, Bill is truly a master of the aviation art world. Here, in his latest work, the artist presents us with an awe-inspiring panorama that pays tribute to a pair of American heroes.

“Flying through storm-tossed skies, Phantoms of VF-96, the Flying Falcons, return from a strike over North Vietnam,” Bill said. “Aircraft #5800, ShowTime 100, was the ‘CAG bird’ flown by LT. Randy Cunningham and LT(JG) Willie Driscoll when, on May 10th, 1972, they downed three MiG-17s, added to their previous two, they became America’s first Vietnam aces.”
May 6th, 1966. F-4 Phantoms form the USS Ranger (CVA-61) attack Hai Phong Harbor, North Vietnam. In this extremely dramatic night action, US Navy Phantoms exit the target area at 400knots, having expended their 5-inch Zuni rocket packs. Their efforts have paid off by destroying an anti-aircraft (AA) site, munitions storage facilities, and sinking two surface vessels. Not a bad night!

Says the artist, John Doughty, Jr., "Low and fast over the jungle of Vietnam, an animal appears from the smoke, destroying anything in its path. Click on the thumbnail for a larger view of this artwork by John R. Doughty Jr., then click on the BACK button on your browser to return here."
"This 'Animal' is 69-291, an F-4E Phantom from the 4th TPS, 366th TFW. Flying on the deck to avoid SAM missiles and following his wingman down low on their bombing run, the pilot presses thru the smoke and debris from exploding bombs, while the RIO notices palm trees are exploding after being hit by the right wing. This brute of an aircraft however, can handle the punishment and is ready to dish out more. Aircraft 291, was flown by Captains Sam White and Frank Bettine of the 4th Tactical Fighter Squadron (TFS), 366th Tactical Fighter Wing."
"Olds Flight" by Roy Grinnell
Painted in detail by Roy Grinnell, this Phantom II streaks across the sky in Vietnam, a hunter in search of prey. A brute in the air, the F-4 was also capable of incredible speed and maneuverability, especially in the capable hands of someone like renowned fighter ace Robin Olds.
