One Last Flight

One Last Flight

On silver wings the Phantom flies; A mighty steed across the endless skies,
She's searching for battle, for one more fight, Before she comes in from her
last flight. With thundering power, she banks and turns, And even her pilot can
feel how she yearns. She plunges ahead, begging for race, For not many a bird
can match her fiery pace. Her throttles move forward, her engines roar; The
clouds stream past, she asks for more. The wind strains to catch her and begs
for a chance, To waltz with her on her last dance. The music departs and the
wind blows by, As twilight's glow touches the sky. Her journey is over, her
battles all won, As she settles to earth, like the setting sun. Her engines are
silent now, she won't fly again, But her legend will live on in the dreams of
men. Author Unknown It It was a great privledge to have worked on such a battle
proven aircraft such is the F4 Phantom. I am a former Marine and I will cherish
those 8 years that I served, forever. God Bless and Semper Fi!! John D.
