Great shots, Julian. I love the contrast between #2's and #4's Phantoms: speed brakes out and nose high to get/stay in formation in #2, and breathing a sigh of relief as he accelerates out of formation in #4.

Excellent set. Must be hard flying the jet slow enough for the others to keep up.

Thanks! Yeah, he was more than happy to light it up afterwards and get out of what must felt like near-stall speed for him. I was told by another photog shooting next to me that the heritage formation was very, very loose the day before. So I had very low expectations, but was pleasantly surprised to find that on Sunday, they pulled the formation closer together. :) I gotta tell you... the F4's are LOUD. :lol:

The day before they also had two Lightnings in addition to the Mustang - "loose" meant the Phantom wasn't sucking Lightning exhaust, just think, losing 2 of 6 flying Lightnings in the US... The join up over Corona was a little less than smooth.

always had a soft spot for the ol' Double Ugly... the Phantoms were big smokin' targets for a long time, but the E model turned into a damned good all-purpose combat aircraft...

Cicopo, both the P-51 and the P-38 are easily capable of 350-400 knots, and the F-4 can fly very comfortably at that speed. less than 200 knots gets a bit dicey, but it can easily fly with propeller aircraft if the prop jobs keep their airspeed up...
