The Phantom II Zone (Also other cool McDonnell Planes)

So, as y'all might know, the Phantom II originally started as a development of the F3H Demon. I had been curious if there was a similar link between the Banshee and Demon. So far I have not been about to find one, although there are a couple proposals for swept-wing afterburning Banshees (the engine is not specified).

 

Interestingly, the XF-88 and the F-101 share the same McDonnell model number (36).

Still the plane I remember the most.

A F-4 Phantom, to me, just looks right. 

And witnessing one shitting soot and fire while standing vertical on a column of pure stink and noise trying to avoid  hitting the church steeple across from the home I grew up in, is something  I'll never forget.

Somewhere I have an old issue of "FLIGHT" (or similar) that talked about the RF-4J.  That the old Sled could, in it's PR form, just burn away from most threats.
