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 November 1968 the JASDF ordered the F-4EJ Phantom. The first two aircraft, 17-8301 and 17-8302 were built by McDonnell Douglas with eleven others being assembled by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries from parts manufactured and shipped from the U.S.. The first of 140 Phantoms was handed over to the JASDF in August 1972 and the last aircraft was received on May 20, 1981. These aircraft equipped six squadrons. F-4EJ 17-8301 was sent to the Air Proving Wing (APW) that in 1989 became the Air Development and Test Wing (ADTW).
