ROME--Workers put a a restored F-4 Phantom II jet onto its pedestal Dec. 10 at the Eastern Air Defense Sector in Rome. Perched on a pedestal 15 feet above a small pond at the facility’s southwest edge, the imposing 47-year-old F-4 Phantom jet demands attention.“The elevated pedestal is a fitting place of honor for an aircraft that served its country for more than four decades,” said Col. John Bartholf, EADS Commander. “The display adds to our facility’s visual appeal, while reminding the public and our staff of the Air Force’s proud history.”
