The last USAF flight of the mighty F-4 Phantom (the Greek AF still flies them).https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rT_gLtwAjBs
When I first moved to my current locale, the VTANG flew the Phantom. VTANG is tasked with CONUS air defense, so they practice often. When a 4-ship flight practiced a combat launch, most of Chittenden County put down whatever it was doing for the next couple of minutes until the thunder had abated. The F-4 is man's triumph of sheer thrust over aerodynamics.
In the school year of 1971-1972, I had the pleasure of living in the Montgomery, AL area due to Dad's (USAF Reserve) required attendance at the staff college at the AFB there. The high point of the stay was family day at the base, with the Thunderbirds flying a full show in Phantoms. Glorious noise.
Humans sleep soundly in their beds because rough cats stand ready in the night to visit violence on those who would do us harm.
