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.
The 10th TRW (Tactical Reconnaissance Wing) was formerly based at Spangdahlem AB, West Germany was relocated to RAF Alconbury, UK arriving on August 25, 1959. In 1965 the 10th TRW received their RF- 4C Phantom IIs. From the mid 1960’s until 1971 the USAF stared using Tail Codes. Aircraft at Alconbury were assigned “AR”, “AS”, “AT” but these weren’t applied until before this method was cancelled. All Alconbury aircraft wore “AR” on the tail and 1 TRS had a blue tip on the tail while 30 TRS had red and 32 TRS wore yellow. RF- 4C-23-MC 64-1077 c/n 1144 was the last aircraft produced in a block of 16 aircraft. After serving its time with the 10th TRW it eventually made its way to the Minnesota ANG/148th TRG. The last owners of 64-1077 were the Alabama ANG and wore BH on the tail. On April 14, 1994 the aircraft was accepted at AMARC and stored as AA FP0954.
