    F4H-1 HA 19032 Project High Jump

    Posted by Michael Holm on Aug 13th 2023

    This aircraft commemorates the fantastic US Navy High Jump Program, Feb-Apr 1962, to take as many maximum altitude and time-to-climb records as possible with its hot, new, fighter. This jet celebrates Navy Lt. Cdr. John Young's 1st and 7th of 8 total time-to-climb records made. He set the records to 3,000 meters (9,842 ft) and 25,000 meters (82,020 ft,), the latter taking his jet into actual space where the engines couldn't run for lack of air before gliding back to a lower altitude and restarting them to land! Young later became an astronaut in both the Gemini and Apollo programs, walking on the moon during Apollo 16, spending nearly 3 days on the lunar surface in April 1972. This was one of the lightest and fastest of the early Phantom IIs built; a real hotrod!
