McDonnell F-4C Phantom parked for display. The F-4 achieved legendary status as a warplane in combat. This one holds many honors and was retired in 1987. I do not know why some airplanes have green camo paint. (5 years and 1272 days ago)

Artifakts says:

Because, when it's landed on the ground and you watch it from the sky (in another plane), it looks like the grass, the forest, the ground.

author says:

Thank you for the comment. It sounds right but at the same time to me it still seems more people on the ground shoot at planes than observers looking down on it. But I do not know about these war things.

kyricom says:

Artifakts is right, but it also applies if the plane is in flight. If you're in a fighter and want the advantage attacking another plane, you often try to start from a higher altitude so you can dive down on them. If the plane is flying over greenish terrain, it would be harder to spot.
