F-4J Phantom BuNo.155743 of Fighter Squadron 92 (VF-92 "Silver Kings" photographed aboard the USS CONSTELLATION (CV-64) on 9 December 1972.

Note the crew is no longer aboard, courtesy of their Martin-Baker seats!

The crew (Lt. J. R. Brooke & Lt. G. B. Bastian) was able to hook up the cable, but the plane at a certain point ‘swerved’ suddenly left to the left of the bridge. The two men were able to eject and were recovered shortly after an SH-3 Sea King, but the poor "Rhino" was hanged as a crooked painting until the return to the port of San Diego.
Wow, that's a great pic....never have seen that one, THANKS for posting!! 🫡 (Y)
There's some still interesting stuff on there despite all of the poo posting, trolling, and political BS that many seem to want to be consumed by.

If it weren't for Facebook, I would have never known about things like that or such as the Skink quad 20mm AA Sherman. Was a nice rabbit hole after wanting to learn more about it.
