F-4 USAF 3D Model
This is the aircraft type for which I have had the most access to data including flight manuals, IBM card decks, Tactical manuals, Standard Aircraft Characteristics though on a direct basis this portrayal here is now decades and thousands of miles from any paper or computer files. I never worked with blueprints though that is the way this aircraft existed for manufacturing at St. Louis where I visited the engineering laboratory simulator rooms. Norm Ko, an engineer at McDonnell-Douglas Missiles & Space (West) received a program called ABS-II and data decks for this aircraft in F-4J form. He got the two things running on a CDC 6500 and about a year later Paul Rose got an IBM translated set of files running at Douglas, Long Beach. Later Francois Reider made a graphics adapter subroutine to present trajectories on an IBM 2250 Vector graphics CRT display. The F-4 represented on that CRT was a single line drawn stick form, essentialy a hexagonal prism with swept trapezoidal wings. This image now is DELL.
