At least three IRIAF F-4E Phantoms sported shark mouth nose art at the 2009 Sacred Defense air show in Tehran. These Iranian "Flying Tigers" hail from Bushehr/TFB.6. The first F-4 was painted on June 2009, upon refurbishment at Bushehr.
the tiger shark nose paint is pretty cool! =)
Yeah, they did a neat job on it.
Looks like they lost one...
An Iranian F-4 fighter jet has crashed near an island in the southern province of Bushehr, a provincial official says.
According to Gholamreza Keshtkar, the fighter jet crashed near Shif island on Tuesday at 10:10 a.m. (0540 GMT).
The official said that the pilots have survived the incident as they managed to eject safely. He further pointed out that they have been transferred to the hospital since they sustained slight injuries.
Mohammad-Hassan Shanbadi, a provincial official, was quoted by Fars News Agency as saying that the crash was due to “technical faults.”
He added that the two pilots were in “good condition.”
