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.
In the 1970s South Korea felt a possible security risk from North Korea so they decided to acquire Northrop F-5Es and McDonnell Douglas F-4Es to bolster their defense capabilities as a deterrent to aggression. Ex-USAF F-Ds were procured in the late 1960s and in 1978 the first of the new built F-4Es began to arrive. F-4E 60-499 c/n 4972 was originally assigned to the 152nd / 17th FW at Cheongju. In 2019 this aircraft was assigned to the 153 Fighter Squadron at Suwon Air Base.
