"022 Beer Call

Phantomeers Beer Call

Skipton Sep 2022

A "reat good time" was had by the 30 odd that turned up, predominantly in the Devonshire, (as it was a Weatherspoons pub - and a damn sight cheaper than all the others!) Various sales of pins and collections amounted to £30.75 to go to RAFA. We're looking at creating a Facebook page to try and generate spreading the word amongst those still alive so let me know if you are interested at the normal address.

More Phantom Memories

Imps and Aces

Bren Murphy's new book "Imps and Aces - Tales of a Phantom Phixer", is now published on Amazon Kindle.

It's the twelve year autobiography of his time in the RAF on Tooms in the 70's and 80's, from join up to demob.

As his time was mainly on 29, 19 and 23, plus the MCS bays, many of you may remember him and the events (mostly humorous, some tragic) he relates.

So, take a stroll down memory lane, get a bit of nostalgia, and he really does need to buy an Aston Martin!!!

A New Book from Ian Black!

A new edition from Firestreak Publishing, featuring our beloved Phantom is:

F4UK 1968-1992

The book is chock full of superb images from various photographers all the way from the prototype, through every Squadron, up until it's demise in 1992. Ian Black, himself, was a Nav on 19(F) Sqn in Germany before completing pilot training and flying Lightning, Tornado F3 and Mirage 2000 on an exchange tour in France.

He is pleased to offer members of the Phantomeers FREE P&P if you order on-line using the link below - just mention where you saw the link!

43(F) Phantom Art

Matthew Emeny is an artist from Suffolk UK and has been commissioned to paint a 43 Squadron PHANTOM F4 intercepting a Tupolev. (Click on image for larger version).

43 Phantom Emeny Art

The painting is now complete. He thought it would be quite fitting to approach the Phantomeers and give all those with a connection to the Phantom and also 43 squadron the opportunity to reserve a low numbered print. Once the painting is complete; there will be a limited edition run of 250 signed and numbered prints, priced at £35 + postage. Size is expected to be A3+ including borders. (each print will come with a certificate of authenticity)

There is a reserve list currently in place which he would like to give our members the opportunity to add their names first before it goes out to the wider public.

Should anyone like to add their name to the list, simply contact him directly by sending him an email to:

Please make sure that you mention you are a member of the Phantomeers association in your email.

You can view more of his work, which includes other aviation paintings, by visiting his website at:

If you have any questions at all, then please do not hesitate to contact Matthew personally.
