Shot from the fence at the 1987 74 Sqn families day. This was when the units would fly a small formation of their own jets. In those days they had the manning, budget and time to do the job properly - unlike nowadays! By 1987 the unit had painted all 15 of their ex USN F-4J's with overall black tails. Tragically, a few weeks after this was taken, the left hand aircraft (ZE358/H) was lost, with the crew, in a accident over Wales during a low level training sortie.
