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.
On December 21, 2016 the USAF officially ended the use of the McDonnell Douglas QF-4E Phantom II when it was used to make a final fly-pass at Holloman AFB. The QF-4E had replaced the QF-106 that had previously been used by the 53rd WEG (Weapons Evaluation Group) / 82nd ATRS (Aerial Targets Squadron). The F-4 has been in service with the U.S. military since 1963 and was the primary multi-role aircraft through the 190s and 70s. The QF-4 provides a realistic full-scale target for air-to-air weapons system evaluation, development and testing.
