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 was located at Alconbury, England and had 3 Tactical Reconnaissance Squadrons, the 1st, 30th and 32nd. Until May 1965 these squadrons flew the RB-66 Douglas Destroyer when they began to convert to the RF-4C Phantom II. In the early 1970Æs tail codes became the standard markings and Alconbury was assigned ôARö -1st TRS, ôASö û 30th TRS and ôATö û 32nd TRS. After about 1 year all Alconbury aircraft wore ôARö on the tail with the 10th TRW distinguished by a small color stripe on the tip of the tails. 1st TRS blue, 30th TRS red and the 32nd TRS yellow. 68-0576 was sent to AMARC on December 9, 1991.
