What is that thing, looks like a headlight, on the left wing station?

John, its called a TISEO (Target Identification Sensor Electro Optical) it was basically a tv camera with a long lens attached.
I flew this aircraft at SJAFB 334TFS 1988-1991. We would fly low level 300 feet AGL at 540 KTS.
@ utility99 I was a witness to that. I'm from Eastern NC, and I can remember the runs to the bombing range and how these beautiful birds along with A-7's, A-6's, Harriers, A-4's, and the occasional A-10, would fly no more than 500 AGL. I can still see the pilots under the canopy in my head...that was about 30 years ago...AN AVGEEK WAS BORN!!!

Great photo! What was the last year that Phantom's were flown in here in the USA? When were they all retired? I know that they lasted quite a while in Germany.

How can I get some high resolution .jpg files so I can print some of your pics?
