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.

The 4th TFW began as the 4th Fighter-Interceptor Wing in January 1950 and the 4th TFW in 1958. The 4th TFW flew the F-4 Phantom II from 1967 until 1990 when it was phased out by the F-15.

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.
