A mash-up of both the McDonnell Douglass F-4 Phantom II’s “Spook" mascot, and the Boeing Phantom Works unit mascot (with a slight nod to the comic book roots thrown in there for good measure). AGL presents the Phantom Zone.
The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II is one of the baddest aircraft ever to take to the skies. A highly adaptable, tandem two-seat, twin-engine, long-range supersonic jet interceptor with fighter/bomber configurations. It was originally developed for the United States Navy, and had its maiden flight in May of 1958, and was capable of carrying over 18,000 pounds of kinetic ordnance, and reaching speeds of over Mach 2.
Boeing acquired McDonnell Douglas Corp. in 1997, including its New Aircraft Products Division, popularly known as Phantom Works. Boeing Phantom Works creates and advances new products and capabilities by drawing on its expertise in innovation, advanced experimentation, and prototyping.
We just think he’s pretty damn cool.
