The F-4 Phantom II Society held their annual Phantom Convention at Tyndall AFB, Florida on the 22nd and 23rd of October 1998. If you’re interested in shooting aircraft in good conditions, i.e. NO TOURISTS or CONES!! then you need to get yourself signed up with the F-4 society. The event is much more than shooting aircraft in great conditions, our PHANCON '97 page will give you an idea of what a Phancon is all about, this year's event was held at NAS Point Mugu in October 1999 (Check out our two reports on this years event).
