The McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II is a tandem two-seat, twin-engine, all-weather, long-range supersonic jet interceptor and fighter-bomber originally developed for the United States Navy by McDonnell Aircraft. It first entered service in 1961 with the Navy. Proving highly adaptable, it was also adopted by the United States Marine Corps and the United States Air Force, and by the mid-1960s had become a major part of their air arms. Primary Role: Interceptor, Fighter-Bomber.
McDonnell Douglas produced 175 F-4F Phantom IIs for the West German Air Force with the maiden flight taking place on May 18, 1973. Deliveries of the F-4F began in September 1973 and lasted until April 1976. These aircraft were assigned to two interceptor wings, JG-71 “Richthofen” and JG-74 “Molders” and two ground attack wings, JBG-35 and JBG-36. In 1999 F-4F 37+86 was given a special paint scheme to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of JG-71 “Richthofen”. The colors represent the red of Manfred von Richthofen and the tulip of Erich Hartmann.
