I guess the colors are a bit faded...either because of the sun or washed out photo.

the tan color looked on this bird. I thought for a moment that it was an ex-Luft bird, but apparently some batches of SEA tan faded into a pea soup color.

But, 34201 was one of the alternate colors called out in the TO back during Vietnam.

Or else we have to believe that the 30219 faded the same in Vietnam photos, CONUS photos, and photos taken in England and Europe.

I'm fine with the idea of fading paint,,,,,but, not so much the fading to the same shade in four areas of the world, over the lifetime of F-4C, F-4D and F-4E.
