Remembering Kermit "Frog" Armbruster

Last week, we lost our friend and Air Warrior, Kermit "Frog" Armbruster to cancer.  Kerm was a frequent attendee of PhanCons and loved the F-4 Phantom II Society.  We love you back, Kerm!  Thanks for the memories.  We thank member, Roger Mills for sending this excerpt to us to share with all of you.

Video: "The Phantom Song" by Voltraid

The Rockband Voltraid, based in Germany, performs "The Phantom Song" in the linked video.  They are Phantom Phans just like us...but maybe more musically inclined.  The video was filmed on location at a German base with airframe 38+13.  Below is the lead singer's letter to us and links to the YouTube video and the Band's website. 

Purchase "Angel's Truck Stop" The Book


 Lt. Col. Angelica "Angel" Pilato is a member of the F-4 Phantom II Society and spoke to our conference in 2015 on "Her Love Affair with the F-4 Phantom." She received a standing ovation and kept the audience laughing with her engaging stories.

Photos from the Phinal QF-4 Drone to leave BAE Systems in Mojave

Photos of the last QF-4 Drone to leave BAE Flight Systems in Mojave, California (11/18/2013) were contributed by one of our members, who was present.  We thank Damon Duran for sharing these with us.  Sadly, the pilot for this flight, Jeffrey "Igor" Percy, was lost in 2015 when a Sabreliner he was flying in collided with a Cessna 172 near Brown Field Municipal Airport outside San Diego.
