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.
VF-111 “Sundowners” re-equipped with the F-4B Phantom II in early 1971. In November 1971 VF-111 returned to the Gulf of Tonkin onboard the USS Coral Sea where they spent 148 days. 29 F-4s were loaned to the USAF when they were planning to acquire the Phantom as their primary fighter. These aircraft had USAF tail numbers and FJ-170, FJ-171 etc. on the fuselage. One of these 29 was VF-111 NL200 151000 CAG given tail number 62-12184 FJ-184 and when the USAF acquired their F-4Cs these 29 aircraft were returned to the USN.
