Opa Locka, Florida Friday 13th March 2009: A few good men! Semper Fidelis! the battle cry of the United Stated Marine Corp. Knowing no boundary concerning the creation of "any aircraft in any setting" the Digital Aircraft Factory under the creative leadership of its Chief Aviation Artist Catherine Smallwood made the grade with yet another satisfied customer. Former United Stated Marine Corp. fighter pilot Col. Chuck Moore USMC (Ret.) having heard and seen the work of the Digital Aircraft Factory within the Miami area, especially with the Historical Flight Foundation Eastern Airlines DC-7B Project, Col. Moore called upon Catherine and her group for a special mission.

The Colonel wanting his beloved Blue Angel team photo of one of his flights to be brought to life and thus providing Catherine and her team with a small 3 x 5 size 1970 era Kodak print, which with the passing of time had played havoc on the Digital Aircraft Factory went to work.

Creating not only the aircraft's, but the entire background and foreground landscape totally from pixels and polygons to mimic the only photograph provided for reference and after an exhaustive and intense level of technical and historical research on the McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom aircraft, particularly the "J" model only then were the condition prefect to create the rendering shown above. This marks the Digital Aircraft Factory first Military aircraft production since its establishment back in December 2008.
