    I don't think anyone has modelled that version of the Phantom. The long nosewheel leg and raised take-off angle was specific to the RN Phantoms to get them off the smaller British carrier.

    Does the Iris FG1 have an extending oleo? Not sure if the Alpha model ever did. I'm not sure about anything
    EDIT: Just had a look at the Iris FG1 and the nose leg looks extended all the time!!

    Come to think of it, I've an idea that although it didn't have an extra long leg the Buccaneer was also positioned on the catapult in a nose-up attitude, in this case with the wheel off the deck, so that it could be flung off better.

    Yes - here's a video of it:

    Love the video!

    Here's a nice photo of a VF-92 Phantom, on approach to the Big E in 1966... NC
